Rodney Atkins has signed on to host the sixth annual Music City Gives Back Concert.

The concert is set for June 7 in Nashville, Tenn., and will benefit the W.O. Smith Music School. In addition to hosting the event, Atkins will take the stage to preform along with Craig Campbell, LANco, Canaan Smith and Dustin Lynch.

“This is hands-down one of my favorite events to do every year,” said Atkins in a press release about the yearly concert. “We started it as a way to help our friends and neighbors in the community who were affected by the huge flood in 2010, and it just keeps growing every year and has become a fun way for us to support some of the great organizations we have in Nashville like the W.O. Smith Music School. I’m grateful to all the artists who are coming out to play with us this year – we’re going to have a good time!”

When it comes time for Atkins to perform, fans might be treated to some of the new music that he has been working on. “We’ve been writing a whole bunch, working on outside tunes as well. I do a lot of the stuff at home. It’s kind of cool, from when I did the first successful album, [If You’re] Going Through Hell, I was encouraged by the record label to experiment, to push myself, to learn and to evolve and to try different things,” Atkins tells The Boot.

The concert comes right before CMA Fest that will be in Nashville from June 9-12. Events are scheduled to take place in Music City including the City of Hope celebrity softball gameMarty Stuart‘s annual Late Night Jam, an up-and-coming country showcase at the Broadway Stage and much more.

Tickets for the concert are free, more information can be found on the event’s website.
