They were joined by country music stars Tanya Tucker, Cody Alan, Terri Clark, Billy Dean, Michael Ray & more speaking out for LGBTQ acceptance during LGBTQ Pride Month. Following an iconic performance from Tanya Tucker, Vince Gill received a standing ovation as host Ty Herndon introduced him to close the show. Gill stated, “As a young child I always heard the words that we are all created equal. I believed that as a little boy & I believe that as a grown man.” Zeke Stokes, GLAAD’s Vice President of Programs & Executive Producer of the 2018 Concert for Love & Acceptance stated, “At GLAAD we know that music has the power to change hearts & minds & all of the country music superstars who spoke & sang at the Concert for Love & Acceptance did just that. Last night’s concert was one for the record books with an amazing lineup of talent & we can’t wait to do it again next year.” The inaugural Concert for Love & Acceptance was held in 2015 to kick off GLAAD’s Southern Stories Tour.
