As the first Broadway Meets Country concert was held in Manhattan, it seems only fair that the second annual concert will take place in Nashville.
On Oct. 30, the second edition of Broadway Meets Country will be held in the James K. Polk Theater at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Among the Broadway favorites scheduled to lend their talents to the annual fundraiser are Laura Bell Bundy, Dixie Carter, Michael Cerveris, Eden Espinosa, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Brian d'Arcy James and Julia Murney. They will be joined by such country music stars as Josh Gracin, Raul Malo, Lorrie Morgan, Jamie O’Neal, SHeDAISY and Lee Ann Womack.
The one-night-only event, which will feature country stars singing Broadway tunes and Broadway stars singing country fare, will benefit TPAC Education and The Actors' Fund of America. Concertgoers can also expect a few duets, where Broadway and country voices will unite.
The concert is presented by the Country Music Association as part of "Nashville Celebrates Country," a week of activities that precede "The 40th Annual CMA Awards."
Tickets for Broadway Meets Country, priced $35-$500, will go on sale Sept. 15 by visiting www.tpac.org or by calling (615) 255-ARTS, ext. 2787. The James K. Polk Theater at TPAC is located at 505 Deaderick Street in Nashville, TN.
