Tonight, Morgan Wallen will make his official return to the stage with a star-studded acoustic benefit concert in support of those impacted by the recent devastating flooding in Middle Tennessee.
Wallen announced the show last week and tickets went on sale immediately.
“I have been touched and heartbroken by the stories I’ve heard from the recent flood and its impact,” Wallen shared on socials at the time. “Wanted to do my part to help. Proud that this is my first official show in a long time. Hope you guys can make it on such short notice.”
The event will feature performances by Wallen alongside Dierks Bentley, HARDY, and Cole Swindell as well as a separate round with Lainey Wilson, Josh Thompson, ERNEST, Ben Burgess, Jared Mullins and Lathan Warlick.
