Nashville is gearing up for the 8th annual Stars For Second Harvest benefit on Tuesday, June 5 at 7:30pm at the Ryman Auditorium. Hosted by acclaimed hit songwriter Craig Wiseman, this musical event features unplugged acoustic performances by some of country music’s brightest songwriters and a special performance by one of country biggest stars, plus more guests to be announced at a later date. The evening helps to raise awareness of hunger issues in Tennessee.
In the last seven years, this event has raised $446,032 to feed the hungry in Middle Tennessee. Because each dollar provides four meals, the funds raised from the concert provided Second Harvest with the funds to supply 1,784,128 meals.
“This is the night that Music Row gives back to help feed our hungry neighbors,” said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. “It is a show that I wouldn’t want to miss and we are encouraging all of our supporters and country music fans to attend and help raise our voices to fight hunger.”
This is the 8th year for Wiseman to host the show for Second Harvest, and the first year to host the event during CMA Fest.
