Country For A Cause Raises $70,000 For Children’s Hospital

Great things happen when the country music community comes together for a cause! Country For A Cause pulled out all the stops during their CMA Fest 2024 concert at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley and raised $70,000 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and celebrated the 10th Anniversary with a four-hour show like no other!

Hosted by country legend T.G. Sheppard & Kelly Lang, along with Devon O’Day, an eclectic group of stellar performers, including Darin & Brooke Aldridge, Moe Bandy, John Berry, Chad Brock, T. Graham Brown, Chapel Hart, Lacy J. Dalton, Mike Farris, Crystal Gayle, Terri Gibbs, Lee Greenwood, The Kody Norris Show, Makenzie Phipps, Stephanie Quayle, Sister Sadie, Leona Williams, along with surprise appearances by Ian Flanigan, Tim Atwood and Rhonda Vincent all donated their time and talents to raise money to help children in their health care journey. The event was sponsored by Gus Arrendale and Springer Mountain Farms Chicken and the group of dynamic entertainers performed to a sold-out house for the fifth consecutive year.

“Country for A Cause has been a longtime supporter of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and we are grateful to Scott Sexton, T.G. Sheppard, Kelly Lang and the entire team for their dedicated efforts to raise funds for our patients,” said Jenny Streams, director of Community Development at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “Day in and day out, our supporters empower the pioneering research, superior clinical training and exceptional patient care that makes us a health leader in Nashville and beyond. Country for A Cause has helped us make our mission a reality.”

“The entire Country For A Cause team is absolutely thrilled with the fundraising results from our production this year to benefit Monroe Carell in Nashville, Tennessee! Thank you to Scott Sexton our CEO, the Board of Directors, the volunteers, the venue, Gus Arrendale and Springer Mountain Farms, Mezek Films and the artists who give it their all to make this so successful; especially this 10th Anniversary show! A huge amount of gratitude goes to our devoted audiences who return year after year with their generous contributions and support. This year our VIP seats all sold out in under one minute with the general admission tickets selling out well in advance of our show date. I cannot wait to see what 2025 will bring!” – Sherri Forrest, President of Country For A Cause
