Blake Shelton Headlining 2016 Stars for Second Harvest Benefit Concert
Blake Shelton will serve as the headliner for this year's Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert.
The 12th annual concert is set to take place on June 7 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, just before the official start of the 2016 CMA Music Festival. Craig Wiseman will be serving as the host for the event, which is being presented by O'Charley's.
Shelton and Wiseman are no strangers to each other: Wiseman is one of the writers behind Shelton's newest single, "Came Here to Forget," and he has written some of the country star's most popular songs, including “Boys ’Round Here,” “Mine Would Be You,” “Green” (with George Teren) and “100 Miles” (with Chris Stapleton).
“Blake has always been a true friend," Wiseman says in a press release, "and I’m ecstatic that he’s agreed to collaborate on making a difference in the lives of those struggling with hunger in Middle Tennessee by headlining this event and making it a party that our guests will never forget."
The Stars for Second Harvest concert benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee; in the past 11 years, the annual event has helped raise nearly $900,000.
Tickets for the 12th Annual Stars for Second Harvest Benefit Concert are on sale now through Ticketmaster, for $35 and $55 plus service charges. In addition to Shelton and Wiseman, Chris Lane, Kane Brown, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne are set to appear.
