Dierks Bentley is teaming up with the cast of ABC’s Nashville to raise money for the African Children’s Choir, with a show at Music City’s historic Ryman Auditorium next Monday. Though the group of youngsters is not terribly well known, they’ve been nominated for a Grammy and their good work is even more impressive. The program has helped put more than 52,000 kids through school in the past three decades and has helped more than 100,000 struggling with poverty in Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa.
The list of performers reads like a cast list from the hit ABC show– Connie Britton, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Sam Palladio, Chaley Rose, Will Chase, Aubrey Peeples, Chris Carmack and Mark Collie. Perhaps some of their devotion to the cause is derived from the fact that the show’s star, Connie Britton, has an adopted son from Ethiopia. She’ll host the evening.
Tickets for the show, which range from about $40 to $120, are available online.
