Charlie Daniels Joined By Justin Moore, Rodney Atkins for Christmas 4 Kids Concert
Charlie Daniels is ready to spread some holiday cheer. The singer will perform his annual Christmas 4 Kids concert in Nashville Monday night (Nov. 25), bringing together some of country music's biggest stars for one worthwhile cause.
Christmas 4 Kids, which started more than 25 years ago, offers children in middle Tennessee the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season. In addition to the Christmas concert, the non-profit also offers a Tour Bus show, allowing fans, for a nominal fee, to tour some of the artists' home away from home, as well as meet their favorite singers in person. Taylor Swift, Wynonna Judd, Chris Young and Trace Adkins are just a few of the numerous artists who have participated in the yearly event.
Proceeds raised from the Christmas 4 Kids concert and the Tour Bus Show are used to give more than 400 children from 29 schools a day-long shopping excursion, complete with a ride in a luxury tour bus, dinner, lunch hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus (donated by Garth Brooks), as well as $150 to shop at Walmart and a brand-new winter coat.
"You think about making a kid smile when there is very little to smile about in their life," Daniels explains. "That’s what Christmas 4 Kids is all about.”
This year's Christmas 4 Kids concert will be held at the Ryman Auditorium. The Tour Bus Show will be held on Dec. 16. More information is available here.
