“We were thrilled to have Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban and an amazing lineup of songwriters and artists as part of our 15th Stars for Second Harvest Show,” said Second Harvest President and CEO Jaynee Day. “All of this is made possible by our show sponsor O’Charley’s who has been with us since this event was created. Because of them, all proceeds go to feeding the hungry in Middle Tennessee. It was a great night for a great cause!”
