Ty Herndon’s second annual 2017 Concert for Love and Acceptance brought together a coalition of musicians and celebrities, for a night filled with incredible entertainment in support of Nashville’s at-risk youth. The proceeds of the event went directly to benefit Nashville’s own Oasis Center.

Hosted by CMT’s Cody Alan, the night included performances and appearances by Billy Gilman, Kree Harrison, Ryan Kinder, Runaway June, Michael Ray, Street Corner Symphony, Thompson Square, Trent Harmon, Mickey Guyton, and comedian Dana Goldberg, Noah Guthrie, Ken Block of Sister Hazel, and Kingston, former Everyday Sunday member, Trey Pearson, and European popstar, Bastian Baker, who became the first international artist to particiapte in the event.

CMT hosted as the event’s media partner, in collaboration with GLAAD as a nonprofit partner; local sponsors included Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Wade Weissmann Architecture, and Retief Skin Center.

Grammy-nominated and Dove Award winning artist Ty Herndon created this event, when his 20th anniversary fan-club party turned into a gathering in support of Nashville’s at-risk youth. The driving force behind the benefit is Herndon’s desire to foster positive cultural change, encourage Nashville’s youth to live to their fullest potential, and to celebrate tolerance, love and acceptance for everyone.
