Brothers Osborne, Kristin Chenoweth, Terri Clark and Tenille Townes are among the artists who will appear during the 2021 Concert for Love & Acceptance, presented by Ty Herndon and CMT on June 30 at 8 p.m. ET.
Co-hosted by CMT’s Cody Alan and produced by Herndon’s Foundation for Love & Acceptance, the livestreamed event via CMT’s social channels will benefit GLAAD, MusiCares and Nashville’s Oasis Center. Other acts on the bill include Brooke Eden, Harper Grae, Chris Housman, Locash, Kathy Mattea, Rissie Palmer, Gretchen Peters, Walker County and Chase Wright.
GLAAD and Herndon created the first Concert for Love and Acceptance in 2015 shortly after Herndon became the first major male country artist to come out as gay. For the fourth consecutive year, CMT returns as presenting partner of the event, with Alan serving as co-host for the sixth time.
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with the dynamic team at CMT once again to bring the Concert for Love & Acceptance to a broad audience as musicians, actors, comedians, and more demonstrate their support for LGBTQ youth and artists in the country music community and beyond,” Herndon said in a statement. “This event comes from my heart, and I hope it continues to resonate with people all around the world as we spread a message of acceptance for all people and work toward a world where only love remains.”
Past performers have included Vince Gill, Tanya Tucker, Reba McEntire, Brett Young, Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Tyler Rich, Michael Ray, Chris Daughtry, Gavin DeGraw, Crystal Gayle, Billy Gilman, Chely Wright and Hunter Hayes.
