“Stars Go Blue” Benefit Performers Announced

(L-R) Exile’s Sonny Lemaire, J.P. Pennington, Marlon Hargis, Les Taylor; Trace Adkins; and Steve Goetzman

The 4th Annual “Stars Go Blue” benefit concert for colon cancer will feature pop/country band Exile and a special appearance by Trace Adkins. The fundraising event takes place at the Country Music Hall of Fame scheduled for March 6.

The “Stars Go Blue” event funds the Colon Cancer Alliance’s “Blue Note Fund,” which was designed by Grammy-nominated musician Charlie Kelley after he was diagnosed with colon cancer. After Kelly was successfully treated he began working to raise awareness and funding for those affected.

Over the past few years, friends and fellow musicians such as Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Hal Ketchum, Jamie O’Neal, Rodney Crowell, Linda Davis, and Wade Hayes have lent their talents to help raise over $125,000 to date.

Tickets are $100.00 per person and include the concert in the Ford Theater, a VIP cocktail reception, and auction after the concert.

Adkins recently got together with Exile to re-record their song, “Kiss You All Over,” for Hit Exchange, a television special created in part by Kelley, which aired on GAC.
