Country music stars and other Nashville-based music stars will perform a benefit concert for the victims of the Covenant School shooting.
At 7 p.m. CT on April 12, more than 20 musical acts will raise money for the victims of the atrocious Nashville shooting that took the lives of six people last month. The "Night of Joy: Celebrating Covenant School" benefit concert at Belmont University’s Fisher Center in Nashville will "honor the victims and their families, the church, staff, and the first responders."
The concert will feature Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett, Chris Tomlin, Lady A, Colony House, Sixpence None the Richer, Mat Kearney, Ben Rector, Dave Barnes, Drew Holcomb, Ellie Holcomb, Ketch Secor, Matt Maher, the Warren Brothers, Natalie Hemby, Stephanie and Nathan Chapman, the War and Treaty, Trent Dabbs, Tyler Hubbard, Sarah Kroger, Brett Taylor, Luke Laird, Sandra McCracken, Dwan Hill, Jasmine Mullen, and Sarah Kroger.
Natalie Hemby said, "Nashville is once again stepping up and using its talents and resources to support the community. After attending the funerals of victims, who were also friends, it will be healing for me to be able to sing songs about hope in a broken world, and to honor the victims, the school, and the first responders."
New York Times best-selling author Annie F. Downs will host the event.
Downs added, "I'm so honored to be a part of this event, gathering with our city and rallying around a school and community that I love so much."
All of the proceeds from the benefit concert will go to the victims of the Covenant School mass shooting.
The deadly attack on March 27 took the lives of 9-year-old students Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney. Also murdered in the mass shooting were Covenant School head Katherine Koonce, 60; substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, 61; and custodian Mike Hill, 60.
Tickets for the benefit concert for the Covenant School went on sale on Wednesday and have already sold out.
Donations can be made to the Caring for Covenant Fund – a charity "to support the healing" of those affected by the Covenant School shooting.
