Tanya Tucker, Kristin Chenoweth to participate in ‘Concert for Love and Acceptance’ to support LGBTQ youth

Tanya Tucker will open the 2020 “Concert for Love and Acceptance,” an annual performance that raises money to support LGBTQ youth and their families.

The concert, co-founded by country singer Ty Herndon and GLADD, typically takes place during CMA Fest in Nashville. But this year, the show will stream live at 8 p.m. June 30 on the Foundation for Love and Acceptance's website, YouTube and Facebook pages. (Herndon recently established The Foundation for Love and Acceptance charity.)

Singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth will co-host with CMT’s Cody Alan. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit GLADD and ACM Lifting Lives, which includes programs that support music therapy, veterans and children’s hospitals in addition to aiding members of the music community during times of hardship.
