Platinum-selling Country star Dustin Lynch took time out of his busy touring schedule Monday night to give back to his hometown. The Tullahoma High School alum performed a sold-out benefit show for over 700 folks at the school’s auditorium to raise money for local community charity, Karing For Kids.

Lynch was joined on stage by Country star Jerrod Neiman as well as hit songwriters Rhett Akins, Jimmy Robbins and Adam Sanders. In all, the event raised over $15,000 for Karing For Kids which provides cold weather necessities like coats, sweaters and shoes for needy area families.

Next on the agenda, Lynch will co-host the official live red carpet show for the inaugural American Country Countdown Awards taking place Monday, December 15th on FOX (8pm ET/ 7 pm CT).

The official red carpet show is produced by Dick Clark Productions and runs from 5pm – 7pm CT. Follow all the red carpet action on Twitter at @TheACCAwards
