Famed country musician Vince Gill has officially joined the line-up of performers for the 8th annual Stars For Second Harvest benefit on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Gill is no stranger to the Nashville entertainment community, he has sold more than 26 million albums, earned 20 Grammy and 18 CMA Awards, and has taken home CMA Male Vocalist of the Year five times. Gill is regarded as one of Country Music’s best-known humanitarians participating in hundreds of charitable events throughout his career. According to Gill, “Second Harvest Food Bank provides such blessings to so many people. I am honored to be a part of this event and grateful for the opportunity to be involved.”
Presented by The Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and Hosted by acclaimed hit songwriter Craig Wiseman, this concert features an unplugged acoustic style performance by some of country music’s brightest songwriters and a special performance by one of country biggest stars. Sponsored by O’Charley’s, this not-to-be missed evening helps to raise awareness of hunger issues in Tennessee. In the last seven years, this event has raised $446,032 to feed the hungry in Middle Tennessee. Because each dollar provides four meals, the funds raised from the concert provided Second Harvest with the funds to supply 1,784,128 meals.
This is the 8th year for Craig Wiseman to host the show and the first year to host the event during CMA Fest. “Tens of thousands of country music fans will be here that week and will absolutely love being let in on our private party that benefits one of the best charities in the country. We are excited to have Vince Gill and Dallas Davidson join our show to play their songs and tell their stories. Our move to CMA Fest week, when all of the stars are in town, promises to be the biggest and most star studded show we have ever done! We expect to sell out as word gets out to all of those country music fans looking for a way to kick off their first night in town with one of the coolest guitar pulls ever!” says Wiseman.
