The auction includes guitars autographed by (l-r) Dierks Bentley, Loretta Lynn, and Keith Urban

• Tonight’s (6/7) Fourth Annual Guitars of the Stars Benefit Auction is giving country fans the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind guitars inspired and autographed by Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Hunter Hayes, Merle Haggard, Casey James, Loretta Lynn, The Band Perry, Kellie Pickler and Keith Urban. In honor of the group’s latest smash, Opry member group Rascal Flatts contributed a banjo to the event. Guitar art was provided by Nashville visual artists Lucie Rice, Amanda Sears and Cindy Wunsch. Casey James will perform and host with WSM-AM and GAC personality Bill Cody. The free, public event is scheduled for today, 5 p.m. at the CMA Music Fest Buckle Stage at 4th Ave. and Broadway. Proceeds will benefit the Opry Trust Fund which assists members of the country music community in need.

Returning host Darryl Worley was joined for performances by Craig Campbell, Canaan Smith, Ashley Gearing, Aaron Parker and Cali Rodi. Silent and live auctions of celeb memorabilia contributed $6100 to the total.
