Keith Urban Joins Country Rising Benefit


Some of country music’s biggest stars will come together for the Country Rising benefit on November 12 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Keith Urban is the latest to join the star-studded line up that also includes Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, George Strait and Carrie Underwood.

Country Rising will benefit the Country Rising Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, charitable initiatives to help victims of the September 2017 hurricanes — Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria. Additionally, the fund will now also help victims of the shooting in Las Vegas.

Garth Brooks will no longer be a part of the event due to a scheduling conflict with additional tour dates being added in Spokane, WA. Instead, Brooks will donate all proceeds from his two added concerts on November 12 to The Country Rising Fund.

Tickets and VIP Packages go on sale on October 20 at 11am (ET) at Ticketmaster. Pre-sale tickets for Citi credit card members go on sale on October 18 at 11am (ET).
