Thompson Square, Billy Gilman, Kree Harrison and Runaway June will join Ty Herndon as performers at his 2017 Concert for Love & Acceptance set for June 8 at the Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville.
Ryan Kinder, Lorrie Morgan, Michael Ray and Street Corner Symphony are also on the list of initial performers announced Thursday (April 20). Additional guests will be confirmed in the coming weeks for the event hosted by CMT’s Cody Alan.
Herndon created and co-hosted the first Concert for Love & Acceptance alongside GLAAD in 2015, when his 20th anniversary fan club party turned into a coalition of artists gathering in support of Nashville’s at-risk youth. The fundraiser evolved from his desire to foster positive cultural change and encourage Nashville’s youth to live to their fullest potential.
This year’s partners include media partner CMT and nonprofit partner GLAAD.
