“Blake is one the biggest stars in the world right now and he is joining us for the second straight year for this incredible cause. I am excited that he has agreed to collaborate on making a difference by helping Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee feed those struggling with hunger in our community,” says Wiseman.
“Once again we are thrilled to be the presenting sponsor for such an incredible event that benefits the people of Middle Tennessee and Second Harvest. We can’t think of a better way to spend our night than with Blake Shelton taking the stage to help raise money for a worthwhile cause.” Eddie Hall, O’Charley’s President
The 2017 event is presented by O’Charley’s and Nissan North America. This concert, hosted by acclaimed songwriter and founder of Big Loud Records and Big Loud Shirt Craig Wiseman, will feature unplugged acoustic style performances by Shelton and Lane. Joining Wiseman for the songwriter’s round will be The Warren Brothers.
Thanks to the generosity and help from everyone in country music and its fans, the show to date has raised ONE MILLION DOLLARS ($1,000,000) and provided FOUR MILLION MEALS (4,000,000) for Middle Tennesseans at risk of hunger.
All proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
