Craig Wiseman‘s 14th Annual Stars For Second Harvest Benefit, held June 5 at the Ryman Auditorium, raised a record-breaking total of $180,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. The Big Loud Party featured all Big Loud artists and writers including Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen, Jillian Jaqueline, Mason Ramsey, Chris Tompkins, Rodney Clawson, Matt Dragstrem and Wiseman as host.

Funds raised at this year’s benefit bring the 14-year total to $1.3 million which goes to support the hungry in Middle Tennessee. Presenting sponsor O’Charley’s, along with stage sponsor Nissan North America and Second Harvest supporter Steve Pariso, all made generous donations to help reach the record-breaking total.

“It’s astounding that in year 14, we’ve exceeded all previous years with the amount raised. I am so grateful for all of the fans, artists and supporters of this incredible event. Each and every one of them has helped us year after year to support this great cause,” said Wiseman. “It is a blessing to work alongside our generous sponsors O’Charley’s and Nissan North America and a special shout out to Steve Pariso for his generosity. With their help we are able to touch the lives of so many who struggle to find a meal.”

Since its inception, the annual event has raised enough to provide over 5.2 million meals to Middle Tennesseans at risk of hunger.
