The Late Night Jam, held by Marty Stuart, helped to kick off the CMA Music Fest on Wednesday, June 9. All proceeds from the event benefit, more than $30,000, will go to the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund.
It truly warmed my heart to see all of the fans that showed up to support us and the ongoing cash donations coming to the stage throughout the night, said Stuart. We all came together to help our brothers and sisters still suffering from the flood devastation.... and we had a pretty good time in the process!
Stuart was joined by Keith Urban, Songwriter Hall of Fame members Dallas Frazier and Cowboy Jack Clement, Steel Guitar Hall of Fame member Ralph Mooney, Connie Smith, the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band and surprise guests Vince Gill and Gene Watson.
Next year's Late Night Jam is set for June 8, 2011.
