For the 12th consecutive year, acclaimed songwriter Craig Wiseman and his friends led a memorable night celebrating music and friendships, to bring their total to over 1 million dollars raised for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee since the event’s inception.

“Thanks to the generosity of the community and our partnerships with Craig Wiseman and O’Charley’s, we are able to truly make a difference in the lives of hungry children, seniors and families in Middle Tennessee,” said Nancy Keil-Culbertson, Senior Vice President of External Affairs at Second Harvest. “These donations will make a huge impact on our mission to feed the hungry and solve the hunger issues in our community.”

The 12th annual benefit concert, held Tuesday at the historic Ryman Auditorium, featured headliner Blake Shelton, who dazzled fans with his banter and his performance of his hit songs including “Came Here to Forget” – his current #1 single written by Wiseman (and Deric Ruttan).

“It is truly a blessing to be able to touch the lives of so many who struggle to find a meal,” said Wiseman. “I’m forever thankful for the years of generous support by our sponsor O’Charley’s and I’m always blown away and love, love, love those fans that fill the historic Ryman every year and support this show. I could hug every one of them. They are the BEST!!!”


This year’s line-up also included a Songwriters Round with Wiseman, Shane McAnally and Josh Osbourne and performances by Shelton, Chris Lane and Kane Brown. Since its inception 12 years ago, the annual event has now raised enough money to provide over 4 million meals to Middle Tennesseans at risk of hunger.
