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 CountryRising.org.
As for the Route 91 shooting, many country stars have shared their experiences from the event such as Jake Owen's chilling reminder and Maren Morris's new song with Vince Gill, "Dear Hate," which was released shortly after the horrific act. Eric Church also shared a tearful tribute at the Grand Ole Opry with his new song "Why Not Me."
