Concert For Love & Acceptance Online

By Charlotte Robinson, June 14, 2021

Country music artist & philanthropist Ty Herndon in partnership with CMT announced that the annual Concert for Love & Acceptance will take place virtually Wednesday June 30th at 8P EST via CMT’s Facebook & YouTube channels. Produced by Herndon’s charitable foundation the Foundation for Love & Acceptance the event will return as a star-studded online event co-hosted by Herndon & CMT’s Cody Alan who has hosted the event alongside Herndon since 2017. Herndon stated, “I’m thrilled to be partnering with the dynamic team at CMT once again to bring the Concert for Love & Acceptance to a broad audience as musicians, actors, comedians & more demonstrate their support for LGBTQ youth & artists in the country music community & beyond. This event comes from my heart & I hope it continues to resonate with people all around the world as we spread a message of acceptance for all people & work toward a world where only love remains.” Cody Alan concluded, “It’s a privilege to return as co-host of the annual Concert For Love & Acceptance, whose mission is as important today as when it launched six years ago. With dangerous & discriminatory legislation pending in our home state of Tennessee, the vocal support of the country music community is immeasurable in changing hearts and minds. I’m eager to again partner with Ty Herndon, CMT, GLAAD, & our new beneficiaries at MusiCares and Nashville’s Oasis Center to highlight the critical work to move LGBTQ+ rights forward.” The event will include appearances & performances by Brothers Osborne, Kristin Chenoweth, Terri Clark, Brooke Eden, Harper Grae, Chris Housman, LOCASH, Kathy Mattea, Rissi Palmer, Gretchen Peters, Tenille Townes, Walker County, Chase Wright & more. Herndon serves as executive producer of the 2021 Concert for Love & Acceptance alongside executive producer Zeke Stokes.
