Reba McEntire, Brandy Clark, Lee Ann Womack & More to Play Alzheimer’s Benefit Concert in Nashville Tonight

Reba McEntire will headline an intimate showcase tonight (July 12) at Nashville’s City Winery to benefit the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. Brandy Clark and Lee Ann Womack are also slated to perform, as well a few “surprise guests.”

Proceeds from the show, dubbed An Evening Together for Care for the Love of Jewel Austin, will benefit the the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, an organization that provides optimal care and services to individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses and to their families and caregivers.

Warner Music Nashville executive Shane Tarleton organized the event in honor of his late grandmother, Jewel Austin, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
