Today (March 28), GLAAD has announced the third Concert for Love and Acceptance set for June 7 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville.

The show, hosted by Ty Herndon and CMT’s Cody Alan, will feature performances by Ty Herndon, Terri Clark, Cassadee Pope, Michael Ray, Calum Scott and Brandon Stansell, with additional performances and appearances to be announced.

“Music has the power to uplift, empower, and change hearts and minds across the country,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President and CEO.

“I’m thrilled to partner with GLAAD once again for this show that has broken so much new ground and started so many important conversations over the past three years,” Herndon said. “Letting our LGBTQ friends, family, and neighbors know they are accepted and loved just as they are isn’t just making the world a better place – it’s literally saving lives – and I’m so proud to be a part of it.”

CMT will return as the event’s media sponsor. Tickets to the event are available at
