Tenille Townes raised $89,000 on Tuesday (June 30th) night during her virtual "Big Hearts For Big Kids" fundraiser with all proceeds benefitting two organizations: Sunrise House (a local youth shelter in Townes' hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta) and Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee's Troop 6000 (an initiative that supports girls without permanent housing in the Nashville area). In the eleven years since Townes started the annual fundraiser, "Big Hearts For Big Kids" has raised over $2 million. Hosted at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, the virtual event featured performances by Tenille, Dierks Bentley, Brandi Carlile, Luke Combs, Andy Grammer, Mickey Guyton, Caylee Hammack, Ashley McBryde, Lori McKenna, Chrissy Metz, Brothers Osborne's John Osborne and Lucie Silvas.
