The sold-out show at Bridgestone features some of country music’s biggest stars including Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. The event will be hosted by Bobby Bones, who is also performing downtown that night.

The Country Rising concerts will benefit the Country Rising Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee; a fund that was established to support charitable initiatives to help victims of the September 2017 hurricanes: Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria.

The fund will now also envelop victims of the Oct. 1 shooting at Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. For more information, visit
