I’m so excited that we have reached a time when the country music community is standing up for love & acceptance for LGBTQ people & young children everywhere who feel different can know that we’re all on their side.” GLAAD & Herndon also announced performances by Billy Dean, Cale Dodds, Parson James, Temecula Road & Thompson Square.
