Blake Shelton headlined the 12th annual Stars For Second Harvest benefit concert at the Ryman Auditorium Tuesday night (June 7) with songwriter and host Craig Wiseman.

Wiseman co-wrote Shelton’s No. 1 hit “Came Here to Forget.” Other performers included Chris Lane, Kane Brown and hit songwriters Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.

As part of an exclusive MusicRow interview with Wiseman last year, the songwriter shared what it means to him to be involved with Second Harvest over the last dozen years.

“In the music business you do a lot of charity events,” said Wiseman. “You can usually assess their spirit pretty quickly. The ones that have stood out for me are St. Jude, Habitat for Humanity and Second Harvest. Jaynee Day [Second Harvest President/CEO] would be packing backpacks or putting cans in boxes if you went out there today. I like that.

“Second Harvest is so efficient—every dollar buys four meals. They’re part of Feeding America. And yes, people still go hungry, even in America; a half mile behind [Music Row] there are people who are hungry. And in this country?! We are right at $1 million raised, which is 4 million meals in Middle Tennessee.”
