Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Sheryl Crow, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kelsea Ballerini and many more country artists will appear on CMT’s virtual benefit concert May 20 for Feed the Front Line Live.

McGraw and Hill’s daughter Maggie McGraw serves as vice president of the Nashville chapter of Feed the Front Line, which provides free meals to frontline COVID-19 employees, essential workers and those in need by providing meals from local restaurants.

A trio of live-streams will occur at breakfast (10 a.m. ET), lunch (2 p.m. ET) and dinner (8 p.m. ET) across CMT’s digital channels featuring artists performing as well as stories from frontline workers and restaurant owners.

The growing line-up also includes Adam Melchor, Avril Lavigne, Blanco Brown, Brett Young, Caitlyn Smith, Carly Pearce, Cassadee Pope, Caylee Hammack, Charlie Worsham, Chase Rice, Dustin Lynch, Grace Potter, Hailey Whitters, Jimmie Allen, Jon Pardi, Kip Moore, Kylie Morgan, Lori McKenna, Matt Quinn, Rita Wilson, Russell Dickerson, Sam Williams, Scotty McCreery, Tenille Townes and Tucker Beathard.

Before, during and after each hour-long stream, fans will have the opportunity to make donations directly to Feed The Front Line.

To date, the organization has raised over $750,000 and delivered close to 50,000 meals to front line workers. Visit ftfl.org for more.
