NASH has announced some of Country music’s biggest artists will now be performing alongside seven-time GRAMMY® Award-winning trio Lady Antebellum at the upcoming “Hearts Unsung” benefit concert on November 9 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
Additional performers now include:
- Martina McBride, one of music’s preeminent female vocalists whose most recently released album, Everlasting, was her fifth chart-topping debut
- Hunter Hayes, the five-time GRAMMY® nominee who just launched his own 21 Tour this fall to support his popular song “21”
- Maddie & Tae, the CMA-nominated singer-songwriter duo currently on the first wind of their headlining Start Here Tour
- Trace Adkins, who, with his trademark baritone, has released countless hits, including “You’re Gonna Miss This” and “Ladies Love Country Boys”
- Jewel, one of the premiere singer-songwriters of our time who recently released Picking Up the Pieces
- Ryan Kinder, the distinctive up-and-comer who is currently working on his debut album
The concert will support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in its mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible through its network of 170 member hospitals across the United States and Canada. The newly-crowned Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell, who serves as the National Goodwill Ambassador for the charitable organization, will be hosting the event.
“I couldn’t be more proud to host the Hearts Unsung benefit concert,” said Betty Cantrell. “I know it will prove to be an exciting concert so I encourage everyone to attend the show and support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”
“The holiday season is a time when our family reflects back on all of the blessings we have had throughout the year,” said Martina McBride. “I’m honored to join the lineup to celebrate Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and help them continue the work they do to give incredible blessings to so many other deserving families each year.”
“As a mother myself, I am touched and honored when I’m able to participate in events that benefit children facing such tremendous hardship,” said Jewel.
The benefit concert will also serve as the centerpiece for the next full-length feature film directed and produced by NASH TV Films: Hearts Unsung. The documentary, which is currently in production, features inspiring stories of courageous women who have overcome adversity paired with amazing live performances from some of the best acts in America, including exclusive content from the Nashville benefit show. Hearts Unsung will also be presented in select movie theaters throughout the U.S. beginning on January 21, 2016.
In addition, the benefit concert will be spotlighted on a two-night NASH Nights Live ‘Night of Miracles’ special broadcast airing on Friday, November 6th and during the Monday fundraiser. The broadcast will include updates from the concert, behind-the-songs stories from Country artists and personal testimonials about the cause.
