Acclaimed Country artists joined together on Jan. 11, for ‘Concert for the Cause,’ a special show at the Ice House in Louisville, which raised over $200,000 for non-profit, Kids Cancer Alliance.

Hosted by “Listening Room” owner, Chris Blair, the star-studded line-up included headliner RCA Recording artist, Jake Owen, with special guests Frankie Ballard, Jana Kramer, Paul Overstreet, Jason Sturgeon, Ilya Toshinsky, Scotty Emerick, Josh Osborne, Ben Bradford, and Olivia Lane.  Artists performed in an intimate acoustic setting, sharing their music in an “in the round” style. A live and silent auction also took place, as well as an after party with Dee Jay Silver.    

Kid Cancer Alliance began in 1981 when the charity hosted its first Oncology Camp. The organization seeks to enhance the quality of life in children with cancer and their families, providing them with free support programs, financial aid and events. More information at
