Ty Herndon’s second annual 2017 Concert for Love and Acceptance on Thursday night (June 8) featured an evening filled with entertainment from a wide variety of musicians and celebrities that attended to support Nashville’s at-risk youth. Joining Herndon for the event, which was hosted by CMT’s Cody Alan, were Billy Gilman, Kree Harrison, Ryan Kinder, Runaway June, Michael Ray, Street Corner Symphony, Thompson Square, Trent Harmon, Mickey Guyton, comedian Dana Goldberg, Noah Guthrie, Ken Block of Sister Hazel, Kingston, former Everyday Sunday member Trey Pearson, and European pop artist Bastian Baker, who became the first international artist to participate in the event.

Herndon created this event last year when his 20th anniversary fan club party turned into a gathering to help support Nashville’s at-risk youth. The driving force behind the benefit is his desire to foster positive cultural change, encourage Nashville’s youth to live to their fullest potential, and to celebrate tolerance, love and acceptance for everyone. CMT hosted as the concert’s media partner, in collaboration with GLAAD, and local sponsors included Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Wade Weissmann Architecture, and Retief Skin Center. Proceeds from the event went to benefit Nashville’s Oasis Center.
