Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, and Jennifer Nettles are just some of the A-list artists who will band together to honor the late, great Kenny Rogers next week while raising funds for a very important cause. CMT GIANTS Kenny Rogers: A Benefit for MusiCares will premiere on April 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
The special will then encore on MTV Live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on April 10 and again on CMT at 12 p.m. ET/PT on April 11. Reports state that performers will be filmed at their homes, while the special will also feature archival photos, interviews and performances from Rogers’ illustrious career. During the broadcast, fans can donate directly to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, created by The Recording Academy to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent cancellation of music events. Half of all funds raised will go directly to artists in the Nashville country community.
