The Christmas 4 Kids 2016 Ryman Auditorium concert on November 21 in Nashville will be headlined by The Marshall Tucker Band, with Ray Stevens, Aaron Tippin, Montgomery Gentry, James Robert Webb, and Ty Bates also scheduled to perform.
“This year’s show at the Ryman is shaping up to be huge,” says Christmas 4 Kids President Linda O’Connell. “Last year, we set a record for money raised for Christmas 4 Kids. With this great lineup, I think we can do it again!”
Doug Gray, lead singer of The Marshall Tucker Band adds, “We had so much fun at last year’s show at the Ryman. We’re grateful that Christmas 4 Kids asked us to come back for a second year. We love being able to help an amazing organization that does so much to bring a memorable Christmas to the children who need it most. See you in November, Nashville!”
“I’m so glad to be a part of this great show,” notes Stevens. “I’ll be debuting a brand new Christmas song at the show and I’m sure it’s one the kids will love.”
Tickets are $36.50 and $60.00 and are available for purchase now at Ryman.com. All proceeds generated from the concert go to the Christmas 4 Kids organization.
Christmas 4 Kids is a not-for-profit organization that has been in existence for over 25 years providing many children, each year, with their very own shopping spree. The funds generated by the concert, and the Tour Bus Show/Artist Meet and Greet event, are used to give over 400 children from 29 different schools, a day-long shopping excursion. The special day consists of a chauffeured trip from their school aboard an entertainer’s luxury tour bus, dinner, and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus. To wrap up the day, the tour buses journey to the Hendersonville, Tennessee, Walmart, where the kids receive a brand new winter coat, and $150.00 to spend however they choose.
