Tenille Townes’ virtual “Big Hearts For Big Kids” fundraiser lived up to its name last night (June 30), raising $89,000 for some very worthy causes.
Hosted at the Ryman Auditorium, the virtual event featured Townes performing songs from her debut album, The Lemonade Stand, as well as special at-home performances from Dierks Bentley, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Andy Grammer, Mickey Guyton, Caylee Hammack, Ashley McBryde, Lori McKenna, Chrissy Metz, John Osborne and Lucie Silvas. The full event will remain available to view for the next week across Townes’ social media platforms.
Proceeds from the virtual concert will go to help Sunrise House, a local youth shelter in Townes’ hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta, and Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee’s Troop 6000, an initiative that supports girls without permanent housing in the Nashville area. In the eleven years since Townes started the annual fundraiser, “Big Hearts For Big Kids” has raised over $2 million.
