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.

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.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
