Tuesday night, September 28, some of country music's brightest new stars will perform at the 6th Annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium. Josh Thompson, Chris Young and Uncle Kracker will join esteemed songwriters Mac McAnally and Tony Mullins for the concert, which will be hosted by acclaimed songwriter, Craig Wiseman. Comedian Henry Cho, will also appear at the event, which helps raise awareness of hunger issues in the Nashville areas.

"I've been hearing about this show that Craig Wiseman puts on for Second Harvest for years now," Josh says. "I am honored to actually be a part of it. It's the perfect situation -- acoustic songs at the Ryman with a great line up and all for an awesome cause. Can't get much better than that!"

Over the past five years, the Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert has raised a total $326,695 to feed the hungry in Middle Tennessee. Donations to Second Harvest can also be made online here.

After his appearance at the benefit, Josh, who just wrapped up on Brad Paisley's H2O tour, will hit the road with Hank Williams, Jr., Jamey Johnson and Colt Ford on the Rowdy Friends tour. The tour kicks off this Friday, October 1 in Birmingham, Ala.
