Ty Herndon’s 5th Concert for Love and Acceptance will take place online on June 30. The virtual event will stream across CMT’s Facebook and YouTube channels at 7 p.m. CT.
Hosted by Ty, Cody Alan and Kristin Chenoweth, the concert will feature performances and appearances from Lauren Alaina, Matt Bomer, Lewis Brice, Terri Clark, Everette, Billy Gilman, Mickey Guyton, Jake Owen, Dennis Quaid, Brody Ray, Kalie Shorr, Tanya Tucker and Rita Wilson.
Produced by Ty’s newly formed charitable foundation, The Foundation for Love & Acceptance, the concert will benefit GLAAD and ACM Lifting Lives. GLAAD and Ty created the first Concert for Love and Acceptance in 2015 shortly after he became the first male country artist to come out as gay.
During this year’s concert, Shelly Fairchild, Harper Grae and Brandon Stansell will be honored as the Foundation For Love & Acceptance’s first LGBTQ Country Music Rising Stars.
