Christmas is defined by our willingness to give back and bring joy to others, especially to those who are less fortunate than we are. As such, witnessing our favorite country artists take initiative in putting smiles on the faces of people from different origins, warms our hearts and inspires us to live our lives with more purpose.
From the start, country music has been widely known for being one of the entertainment industry’s most charitable genres. And it was proven yet again on November 28, during a charity event where several of our favorite country singers participated.
Miranda Lambert, joined by Tracy Lawrence, Carrie Underwood, Tucker Beathard, Brent Cobb, Charlie Worsham, and Lauren Alaina, each of these artists held their own benefit events.
Miranda Lambert launched a brand new initiative, in line with her org, Muttnation Foundation. The initiative offers fans the chance to become Muttnation “citizens”. This means that all members who donate $25 will be receiving a downloadable Certificate of Citizenship with the country singer’s signature. They will also be rewarded with additional cool rewards as thank you for lending a hand in making abandoned pets find a new home.
Lawrence fulfilled a benefit concert called 12th Annual Mission: Possible Turkey Fry and Third Annual Concert that raised a total of $148, 000 for the Nashville Rescue Mission. On the other hand, Carrie Underwood commended Rachael Ray, renowned celebrity chef, for donating $10,000 to the C.A.T.S. Foundation. Located in Checotah, Oklahoma, the said organization aims to provide education, arts, as well as uphold animal rights.
From the comforts of their beds, both Tucker Beathard and Brent Cobb participated in the viral movement, #Bedstock. Spearheaded by MyMusicRx, the program entailed participants to perform acoustic sets in the comforts of their bedroom. Their performances will be broadcasted online to children battling cancer and other serious or terminal illnesses.
Lauren Alaina collaborated with Friends Life Community, a nonprofit organization based in Nashville. She made her first donation to the said foundation and even launched her first charity, My KInda People. The said initiative aims to cater to over 40 teens and adults with special needs by building a community where they can develop individually and socially.
Last but not the least, Charlie Worsham headed back to his hometown in Grenada, Mississippi to frontline a charity event in support of his scholarship program, Follow Your Heart Arts. The event, which was a gala, was able to raise $30,000 in the hopes of helping young men and women enhance their skills and find empowerment in their lives through exposure to music.
All these artists perfectly embodied the true meaning of Christmas spirit. We’re hopeful that their acts of kindness will help inspire and spark a multitude of more good deeds.
