Some of country music’s most elite stars will perform at ‘Country Rising’ in Nashville, Tenn. on Nov. 12, a concert to benefit victims of recent tragedies. The benefit concert will feature performances by Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, George Strait, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt, and Keith Urban, according to Country Rising.  

The night of music by the star-studded cast of musicians will be at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The country stars will rise to the occasion by helping the victims of recent hurricanes and the Las Vegas shooting, through the Country Rising Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, according to a press release from Country Rising.

Garth Brooks will not be part of the “Country Rising” line-up, due to a scheduling conflict. The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year has pledged to donate all proceeds from his two added concerts in Spokane, WA to the benefit.  

Many of the elite country stars performing at Country Rising have been nominated for 2017 CMA Awards, which will take place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 8. The nominees for the Country Music Awards include Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood.

‘Country Rising’ is sure to be an event that big-hearted country fans will want to experience. Fans will be able to experience live performances by some of their favorite megastars while helping fund recovery efforts for people in need.
