Tenille Townes will host her annual “Big Hearts For Big Kids” benefit concert on Tuesday, June 30th at 7 p.m. CT from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The show will be streamed via Tenille’s YouTube, Facebook and Instagram pages. In addition to performances of songs from her upcoming album, The Lemonade Stand, the virtual concert will feature at-home performances from Dierks Bentley, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Andy Grammer, Caylee Hammack, Ashley McBryde, Chrissy Metz, and John Osborne, to name a few.
Tenille said, “It is a dream to be bringing ‘Big Hearts For Big Kids’ to Nashville, to be lifting up youth who need us in the world right now and celebrating with music from artists that I admire so much. Watching the way this event has grown in my hometown over the past 10 years has shaped me and taught me what people coming together through music can really do.”
In the 10 years since Tenille started the “Big Hearts For Big Kids” fundraiser, she has raised over $1.9 million for Sunrise House, a local youth shelter in Tenille’s hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta Canada. Proceeds from this year’s event will once again benefit Sunrise House as well as Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee’s Troop 6000, an initiative that supports girls without permanent housing. Donations to both organizations can be made via bigheartsforbigkids.com.
Tenille's The Lemonade Stand album will be released on June 26th.
