Ty Herndon’s 2017 Concert for Love & Acceptance is getting ready to take on the country-music establishment with a diverse group of artists set to take the stage. The show, hosted by Cody Alan, announced its initial artist lineup, with more to be announced in the coming weeks. In addition to Ty Herndon, this year’s talent lineup includes Billy Gilman, Kree Harrison, Ryan Kinder, Runaway June, Lorrie Morgan, Michael Ray, Street Corner Symphony, and Thompson Square.
This concert hopes to support at-risk youth and is sponsored by GLAAD. It’s to be held on Thursday, June 8th starting at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, Tenn. Grammy-nominated and Dove Award–winning artist Ty 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 driving force behind the benefit is Herndon’s 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 as well as local sponsors Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Wade Weissmann Architecture, and Retief Skin Center.
