Thomas Rhett and a Few of His Friends, Including Dierks Bentley & FGL, Raise More Than $250,000 in Inaugural Charity Event

Last night (Oct. 5), Thomas Rhett’s inaugural charity concert event—aptly named Thomas Rhett & Friends—raised more than $250,000 for 147 Million Orphans, an organization that provides food, water, medicine, shelter and education to children in need. The event took place at Nashville’s The Old School, a nine-acre retreat that houses a restaurant, bar and live-music venue.

The night’s festivities included performances from Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line, as well as a songwriters round with Russell Dickerson, Walker Hayes and Shane McAnally. Attendees also enjoyed a farm-to-table dinner, limited-edition merchandise and a post-show s’more roasting with Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren.

“Last night was an unreal experience for me and Lauren, to see our hometown, as well as people from all over the country, coming together to support something that’s so important to us,” said Thomas Rhett. “Tuesday nights are like Saturday nights to artists, so I want to be sure to thank Dierks, Brian and Tyler, Shane, Walker and Russell for giving up part of their weekends to make it such a special night, and help us raise money and awareness for this amazing cause.”
