Tenille Townes is taking her annual “Big Hearts for Big Kids” benefit concert virtual this year, though she will be hosting the all-star event from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.
Dierks Bentley, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Andy Grammer, Mickey Guyton, Caylee Hammack, Ashley McBryde, Lori McKenna, Chrissy Metz, John Osborne and Lucie Silvas are all set to deliver at-home performances during the livestream.
The event will benefit Alberta, Canada’s youth shelter Sunrise House, plus Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee’s Troop 6000, which supports girls without permanent housing. Townes herself will also perform songs from her debut album, The Lemonade Stand, out June 26.
“It is a dream to be bringing ‘Big Hearts For Big Kids’ to Nashville, to be lifting up youth who need us in the world right now and celebrating with music from artists that I admire so much,” Townes said in a statement. “Watching the way this event has grown in my hometown over the past 10 years has shaped me and taught me what people coming together through music can really do.”
