This past weekend, Charlie Worsham hosted “Midnite Jamboree Hosted by Charlie Worsham Featuring ??” with different surprise performances by special guests Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, including Eric Church, Vince Gill, Kid Rock, Hunter Hayes, Brandy Clark, Aubrie Sellers, the Brothers Osborne, Brent Cobb, Margo Price and Lucie Silvas. The event was held at the iconic Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Broadway in downtown Nashville Thursday and Friday evening, and was moved to a larger venue, aVenue, Saturday evening to accommodate the massive amount of fans who wanted to attend.

As long as he can remember, Worsham has had a deep love and appreciation for the history and impact that Ernest Tubb has had on country music, specifically with the record store he opened in the ’40’s, and the Jamboree that he started in that record shop, which over the years developed a reputation for giving struggling young country artists the opportunity to shine.

“This weekend, we shined a light on one of country music’s most hallowed landmarks,” Worsham said. “Thank you so much to the loyal fans who came out, and to the incredibly gracious artists who joined me on stage. I am blessed everyone put the music first, followed their hearts and let some big magic happen over the past few days. My heart and soul are overflowing with gratitude, joy and love.”

In addition to hosting “Midnite Jamboree” Worsham just completed his first album in three years, with release dates being announced soon.

City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game Hits a Home Run in It’s 26th Year

It was a homerun for the 26th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, which saw more than 30 music and sports stars step up to the plate to strike out cancer at First Tennessee Park in Nashville. Team iHeart Country and Team Opry ended in a tie game with a final score of 18 to 18.

Country Music icon Trisha Yearwood led with the national anthem before Lauren Alaina, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, The Bobby Bones Show, Bucky Covington, Jessie James Decker, Charles Esten, Nick Fradiani, Vince Gill, Mickey Guyton, Jonathan Jackson, Chris Lane, LOCASH, Scotty McCreery, A Thousand Horses, Tristan McIntosh, Bret Michaels, David Nail, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn, Jamie Lynn Spears, Mark Wills, Brett Young and former Major League Baseball pitcher Barry Zito took to the field to strike out cancer. The Crook and Chase Countdown’s Lorianne Crook and WSM’s Bill Cody emceed and offered play-by-plays for the thousands of fans in attendance.

The fan favorite game didn’t disappoint, as the bats came alive for both teams throughout the high scoring game.  Memorable moments on the field included multiple inside the park homeruns, double plays, and some crazy antics leading to tying the score up at 18 in the final inning.

The City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, a 26-year tradition during CMA Music Festival, celebrated its first quarter century in Nashville as it honored the game’s founder, music industry veteran Bruce Hinton. The “Champion of Hope Award” was presented to Hinton by President and CEO of Big Machine Label Group, Scott Borchetta, for his significant contributions to the event over its quarter century history.

While neither team can walk away with bragging rights this year, it is the patients at City of Hope who are the real winners with more than $200,000 raised for cancer research.

Thousands of fans packed the ballpark to catch the action and antics on the field. Before the first pitch was thrown, the crowds cheered wildly as 8-year old City of Hope patient Aaron Yniguez, who received lifesaving treatment for acute myeloid leukemia more than three years ago at City of Hope, and his genetically matched, life-saving stem cell donor Yolanda Nava, a Southwest® Airlines Employee from Arlington, Texas, traveled to meet on the pitcher’s mound for the very first time.

Bone marrow transplants offer a second chance for people with life-threatening blood cancers and other hematologic malignancies. Since 1976, more than 13,000 patients from virtually every state and dozens of countries have undergone bone marrow, cord blood or stem cell transplants at City of Hope. Support from the Nashville community and its country music artists directly benefit City of Hope’s mission to find cures for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

Those unable to attend the game can still support City of Hope. A variety of unique merchandise including game-worn jerseys signed by the players, and experiences including meet-and-greets with the hottest artists, will be available for bid at Cohauctions.com. The proceeds will benefit City of Hope’s mission to eradicate cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
