Gary Allan headlined Joe’s Bar on Saturday, December 15th with a portion of the proceeds benefiting ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music. The show raised more than $11,000 for ACM Lifting Lives, which will go to help fund organizations that are improving lives through the power of music. Gary Allan has previously been involved as a volunteer artist in ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp, held annually for campers with developmental disabilities in Nashville, TN.
Ed Warm, co-owner of the two-time ACM Nightclub of the Year and board member of both the Academy of Country Music and ACM Lifting Lives, spearheaded the show. This is the second Joe’s Bar performance that has benefitted ACM Lifting Lives. The first, in 2011, featured performances by ACM Award winner LeAnn Rimes and Crystal Bowersox.
“Joe’s and Gary Allan are both long time Lifting Lives supporters and we were all thrilled to come together with the help of WUSN for a night of great live music to benefit a great cause,” said Warm. “We hope to do more of these concerts in 2013.”
