Rodney Atkins is gearing up for his annual Music City Gives Back concert, which will be held this week during the 2012 CMA Music Festival. On Tuesday (June 5), Atkins and some of his singing pals will take the outdoor stage in the heart of downtown Nashville to help benefit the American Red Cross.

The event will be free to the public and feature performances from the likes of Clint Black, Thompson Square, Lee Brice, Josh Thompson, Jana Kramer, the FARM, Mallary Hope, the Willis Clan, and of course, Atkins. Music is scheduled to begin at 5PM CT on Broadway in downtown Nashville between Second and Fourth Avenues.

“Last year was such a great experience to close down Broadway and to raise money and awareness for the American Red Cross, we decided to do it again,” says Atkins. “This is an organization that helps so many people in all of our communities, and they need support not just when disaster strikes. Looking forward to getting out there and raise awareness and party with everyone in Music City.”

The special concert is being presented by Wrangler Western Wear and Cricket’s Muve Music. Those who are unable to make the trip to Nashville for CMA Fest can still enjoy the performances when they are streamed live online through Wrangler’s Facebook page.
