Cumulus today announces that its popular NASH Country lifestyle brand will present “Hearts Unsung,” a benefit concert supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals nationwide and featuring Lady Antebellum, on November 9, at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
Tickets for the Hearts Unsung benefit concert will be available beginning at 11 a.m. ET on Monday, October 5, at www.nashvillesymphony.org. Additional guest performers will be announced soon.
The fundraising event 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 hospitals across the United States and Canada. Since it was founded in 1983, the organization has been raising money to support research and training, purchase equipment and pay for uncompensated medical care for children in need. One in 10 kids in North America is treated each year by its member hospitals.
“One of the coolest parts of the Country Music community is how Country Radio uses their platform to help and inspire people,” said Lady A’s Dave Haywood. “We also believe in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ mission and the work they are doing, so we’re really looking forward to being a part of what I know will be a great night in our hometown!”
“Cumulus is proud to join forces with Lady Antebellum and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to bring music and funding to millions of children in need,” said Mike McVay, Cumulus Senior Vice President of Content and Programming.
The benefit concert will 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” 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.
