Several of country music’s top artists, including Jason Aldean, Morgan Wallen, and Old Dominion, are coming together for a benefit concert in support of The Covenant School.

A Covenant Knight at the Grand Ole Opry House will take place on Monday, August 7 and will include performances by Aldean, Wallen, Anne Wilson, Brandon Heath, Jeffrey Steele, Lee Brice, Maddie & Tae, NEEDTOBREATHE, Old Dominion, and Zach Williams as well as special guests.

Hosted by Storme Warren, the two-hour event comes just nearly five months after The Covenant School tragedy and marks the beginning of a new school year for the students and faculty. 

A Covenant Knight at the Grand Ole Opry House was organized by Houston Phillips and Chad Schultz, two Covenant parents and longtime music industry veterans, along with staff from The Covenant School and in conjunction with Opry Entertainment Group.   

“This event stands as a powerful testament to the unwavering strength of Nashville’s country music community, friends, neighbors, and especially parents,” Phillips shared in a statement. “I was truly moved by the inherent goodness of those who offered support, no questions asked, as we worked to create an event that would lift up our community and contribute to Covenant School’s ongoing recovery efforts.”

“It’s an honor to be invited to support the students and families from The Covenant School,” Zach Williams shared. “Music has a remarkable ability to bring us all together, and through this event, we can continue to provide solace, strength, and healing to all involved. There is no better place in Nashville to demonstrate the resilience and unity of this community than at the Opry House, so let’s show the world that we are all #CovenantStrong.”

Tickets for the benefit concert will become available to the public beginning Friday, June 30 at 10 AM CT. To purchase tickets, click HERE.

All proceeds from the benefit concert will go to The Covenant School Community Fund to continue mental health support for healing, ease the transition back into the building and equip the school for a safe, successful new year together. For those unable to attend the event, donations for The Covenant School are also being accepted HERE.

The benefit concert comes in support of The Covenant School following the tragic March 27 shooting, which took the lives of three children and three adults.
According to WSMV, The Covenant School will resume classes this fall at Brentwood Hills Church Of Christ, the same location that became a temporary school site in early April of 2023.
