Brad Paisley, Charles Esten, Chris Young, Lindsay Ell & More to Headline 2nd Annual ’80s Dance Party to Benefit the Alzheimer’s Association

CMA Fest week will get an unofficial kickoff during the second annual ’80s Dance Party to End Alz, which will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, on June 3 at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon.

This year’s event will feature Brad Paisley, Chris Young, Charles Esten and Lindsay Ell singing—and dancing to—their favorite ’80s songs. Additional artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We were thrilled by the success of last year’s Dance Party to End Alz, where we grooved to hits from the ’70s,” said Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who will once again team with Blair Garner to emcee the event. “We’re excited to make this an annual event and bring the ’80s to Nashville this year. It is so inspiring to see the country music community rally around the Alzheimer’s cause, which is very important to our family and millions across the country. We are more motivated than ever to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research that will ultimately change the course of this disease for so many.”

In addition to raising awareness in the fight to end Alzheimer’s disease, last year’s event raised more than $300,000 through its silent auction and concert.

Tickets for the event will be available for pre-sale on April 18 at 11 a.m. CDT. Ticket sales will be open to the general public on April 20 at 11 a.m. CDT.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
