Keith Urban to Headline Second Harvest Benefit Concert in Nashville

Rolling Stone — Jon Freeman

Keith Urban has signed on to perform at the 15th annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert in Nashville, which takes place the same week CMA Fest sets up shop around downtown. Hosted by hit songwriter Craig Wiseman (“Live Like You Were Dying”), the event will be held Tuesday, June 4th at the Ryman Auditorium.

Urban leads a diverse lineup that includes Wiseman, who brings 27 Number One songs and 125 total singles to the party. Additional performers on the bill include 12-year-old yodeling phenomenon Mason Ramsey, rising artist Hardy, songwriter Lee Miller and singer-songwriter Madison Kozak.

Tickets are currently on sale starting at $40, with preferred and premium seating options also available. Proceeds from the concert benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and its mission of helping address hunger issues in the Nashville area. Past performers have included Blake Shelton, Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen and Chris Lane.

On Tuesday, Urban released his new song “We Were,” a nostalgic tune from a forthcoming album. It follows the intense cover of Foy Vance’s “Burden” that he debuted live during the 2019 ACM Awards, during which he was named Entertainer of the Year. The Australian singer-guitarist is also set to perform at Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest, taking the stage on Sunday, June 9th.
