The annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert with Craig Wiseman and Friends raised more than $142,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. The June 3, 2014, sell out show at the Ryman Auditorium celebrated Craig Wiseman’s 10th anniversary as host as well as O’Charley’s 10th year as a presenting sponsor. This year also marked the third year of participation from the headliner, Florida Georgia Line.
Throughout the past 10 years, this event has raised more than $750,000 to feed hungry children, seniors and families in Middle Tennessee. Second Harvest provides four meals for every dollar donated. Therefore, funds raised from the past decade have provided over 3 million meals to the one in six Middle Tennesseans at risk of hunger.
“I have been so honored to host this show for the past decade,” said Craig Wiseman. “Since we began in 2005, it has been my goal to raise more and more money for Second Harvest. With support from all of the artists, our sponsor O’Charley’s, and the fans, I am proud to have sold out the Ryman Auditorium and raised more than $142,000 for Second Harvest.”
This year’s line-up included a songwriters round with Wiseman, Luke Laird, David Lee Murphy and special guest Chris Tompkins with performances by the Nash Trash Girls and Tyler Farr. Superstar duo Florida Georgia Line headlined the show performing their Platinum-certified, No. 1 smashes “Round Here,” “Get Your Shine On” and “Stay” as well as their current Platinum hit “This is How We Roll” (feat. Luke Bryan). They closed out the show with the Alabama cover “I’m In A Hurry” and their 6X-Platinum smash “Cruise.”
