Jake Owen has announced a one-night-only benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on July 15.
Proceeds from the event, titled “Jake Owen & Friends: A Concert Made for You,” will go to the Country Music Association’s philanthropic arm, the CMA Foundation, which focuses on supporting high-quality music education programs across the United States.
The country music singer-songwriter and actor is expected to perform a selection of his biggest career hits at the Ryman. Songwriters Benjy Davis, Joey Hyde and Neil Medley will join Owen on the stage.
“Being able to play the Ryman Auditorium is always going to be special, but to be able to share the stage with some of the people who helped shape my career with their songs is something that I will remember forever,” said Owen.
He added, “This ‘Made For You’ concert is made for country music fans, and it’s going to be a special way to be a part of the shows that are welcoming live music back to Nashville.”
“With CMA Fest postponed for a second year, the Foundation lost a majority of its funding,” said Tiffany Kerns, CMA Foundation executive director. “Having artists like Jake show continued commitment and support to our mission is what sets country music apart. As beneficiaries, we are honored to be included in this event.”
Sale of tickets for the benefit concert will begin on Friday, June 25 at 10 a.m. CST and can be purchased at https://ryman.com/events/.
