Breland taps Kane Brown and more for benefit show
Breland hosts a benefit show to support young people in need, and he brings along some of his A-Lister friends from around the country. The one-night-only event, billed as “Breland & Friends,” will take place at Ryman Auditorium on April 12.
Special guests of the evening include Kane Brown, Russell Dickerson, Mickey Guyton, Lady A’s Charles Kelley, Tyler Braden, Restless Road, RaeLynn, Seaforth and Brittney Spencer. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Oasis Center, a Nashville-based nonprofit that supports young people through counseling, a short-term housing program, access to university and more.
“Oasis Center does incredible work with youth in crisis, and their impact on the community of Nashville and beyond is unparalleled,” Breland said in a statement. “I can’t think of a better place to celebrate and fundraise for this amazing organization than the Mother Church itself. Every artist I have with me at the Ryman represents the same selfless ideals as the Oasis Center, and I’m so excited to share the stage with them.”
Breland has worked with several of his guest artists before: He and Guyton dueted a version of Breland’s “Cross Country,” and he and Brown brought their vocal talents to a Crossroads CMT episode led by curious country rapper Nelly. Guyton and Spencer will also appear alongside Breland in an upcoming Amazon Music documentary highlighting the evolution of country music from the perspective of its black artists.
Tickets for “Breland & Friends” at the Ryman are available for purchase now.
