Guests enjoyed a farm-to-table dinner, limited edition merchandise, and a post-show s’more roasting with Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren.

“Last night was an unreal experience for me and Lauren, to see our hometown, as well as people from all over the country, coming together to support something that’s so important to us,” said Thomas Rhett. “Tuesday nights are like Saturday nights to artists, so I want to be sure to thank Dierks, Brian and Tyler, Shane, Walker and Russell for giving up part of their weekends to make it such a special night, and help us raise money and awareness for this amazing cause.”
