A second annual "Guitars of the Stars Benefit Auction" will be held on Friday, June 11, 3 PM at the Ryman Auditorium will give fans in town for CMA Music Fest the unique opportunity to bid on acoustic guitars decorated by some of country music's hottest stars. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Opry Trust Fund and will be earmarked for victims of this month's Middle Tennessee floods.
The list of stars confirmed to contribute guitars they've designed in celebration of their current singles, hobbies, favorite country songs, or country music heroes is impressive and includes: Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Danny Gokey, Alan Jackson, George Jones, The Judds, Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker and more. Other guitars up for bids will include a custom Gibson Ebony LP guitar to be signed by artists at the 2010 CMT Music Awards.
The Opry Trust Fund has for more than 40 years assisted members of the country music community in need of help with medical bills, living expenses, utilities, rent, and food. Proceeds from this year’s auction will be earmarked to benefit victims of the floods that ravaged Middle Tennessee earlier this month.
Are you going to bid on any of these items? It is for a good cause.
