The 2nd Annual CountryMusicIsLove Concert Benefiting City of Hope was held on March 1, 2011 at Hard Rock Nashville. The event featured acoustic performances by Chelsea Lena, Savannah Berry, Ashley Gearing, Ty Brown, Chris Cavanaugh, Stealing Angels, Katie Armiger, Jesse Lee, Troy Olsen, Brett Eldredge, Thompson Square, Chuck Wicks, and Josh Thompson. Plus, Whitney Duncan did double duty as host and performer for the evening.

100% of ticket sales will be donated to City of Hope, one of the nation's leading research, treatment and education centers for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. In addition, CMIL will host an online auction within the coming days to also benefit City of Hope. We’ve got some great items that were autographed by the artists backstage at the show, so stay tuned!

We’d like to send out a HUGE thank you to Hard Rock Café Nashville, Honky Tonk TV, Farm Boy Brand, Gibson guitars, I.D. Grafix, and H2O Spring Water for sponsoring this wonderful event. Also, thanks to all of the artists for donating their time and talent for this great cause….AND most importantly, thank you to the fans for coming out to the show to support CountryMusicIsLove and City of Hope. We’re already looking forward to next year’s show!
