The unforgettable evening was held to raise funds and awareness for the “Band Against Cancer” movement…a joint partnership between cancer specialist Sarah Cannon and Big Machine Label Group, aimed at helping people with cancer connect to the support and resources they need.
The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter has been keeping busy this year, releasing her critically-acclaimed sophomore album, “Playing With Fire”, joining label mates Cheap Trick for a “CMT Crossroads” that earned a CMT Music Awards nomination for ‘Performance of the Year’ AND headlining the 30 plus city “CMT Next Women of Country Tour” across the U.S. and Canada alongside Brandy Clark, Lindsey Ell, and Tara Thompson.
