Country Music’s star-studded benefit concert COUNTRY RISING Presented by Hilton at Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 12 has sold-out, prompting the addition of a second event the same night, COUNTRY RISING: DOWNTOWN JAM at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater. The Downtown Jam will be hosted by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren and will include performances from Tucker Beathard, Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots, Bailey Bryan, Lindsay Ell, Chris Janson, Jon Pardi, Eric Paslay, Carly Pearce and Drake White, with more artists to be announced. Tickets go on sale Thursday, Oct. 26 at 10:00A CT
Bridgestone Arena’s sold-out show features Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, and will be hosted by iHeartMedia’s Bobby Bones.
COUNTRY RISING is presented by Hilton, sponsored by Citi and Tito’s Handmade Vodka and will benefit The Country Rising Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which was established to support charitable initiatives to help victims of the September 2017 hurricanes — Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria. Additionally, the fund will now also envelop victims of the recent shooting in Las Vegas. In the course of rebuilding lives disrupted by these devastating events, there are immediate needs and there also will be long-term needs. This fund will strategically support both as they emerge.
