Country music icon Wynonna Judd will join several other prominent country artists in a benefit concert to support truckers and their families.
The virtual “Highway to Hope” benefit concert will take place on Sunday, May 16, from 6 – 8 p.m. (CST) with a portion of the proceeds going to the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund (SCF).
Country music singer Wynonna Judd will headline the concert, with country artists John Schneider, Billy Dean, Lindsay Lawler, and Heath Sanders also making appearances at the show. The event will be hosted by Radio Nemo host Jimmy Mac.
Tickets for the virtual concert are available for purchase for $20 (plus a $2 transaction fee) on the SCF website at livestream.truckersfund.org. Those who purchase a ticket in the U.S. will also receive a free CD from the NASTC Grand O Trucking Show which includes Lindsay Lawler and Nashville singer/songwriters featuring music celebrating the trucking industry.
“The first ever Highway to Hope benefit concert will be a fun virtual event bringing our industry together, at a time when we are far apart, to raise support for SCF and our highway heroes with amazing artists that want to give back to this industry. We hope you will join us for a night of music and celebration,” says Shannon Currier, Director of Philanthropy and Development with St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund.
The SCF is a 501(c)(3), truck driver charity that helps over-the-road/regional semi-truck drivers and their families when an illness or injury, occurring within the last year, has caused them to be out of work.
