In May, Jessica Andrews and Billy Gilman headlined a similar benefit, the seventh annual Sizzlin' Country Concert, at Warner Bros. Studios in Los Angeles. Their manager, Scott Siman of rpm management, received the Heart of Country Award from the foundation, which recognizes contributions to the community.

Performers included Cochran, Marx, Andy Griggs, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Lila McCann, Tim Rushlow, Trick Pony, Tracy Byrd, Mark Chesnutt, and Keith Urban. Sonny Burgess and Rodney Redman appeared in the new-faces segment of the show.
