The show, which was hosted by New York’s Country 94.7 (WNSH-FM), featured performances by Darius Rucker, Zac Brown, Chris Young, Lee Brice, Tenille Arts, Caroline Jones and Jameson Rodgers. The event benefitted 9/11 Day, the nonprofit that runs the federally designated September 11th National Day of Service.

“What an incredible way to mark our return to live events by bringing together some of the biggest names in country music together to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11,” said Michael Martin, Senior Vice President of Programming and Music Initiatives, Audacy. “9/11 holds such a special place in our hearts for all Americans and we’re proud to have been able to unite with our fans to pay tribute to those we lost 20 years ago.”

The night featured a rotation of songs from the artists atop the East River in New York, NY. Caroline Jones, Jameson Rodgers and Tenille Arts kicked off the show before handing the mics off to Lee Brice, Chris Young, Darius Rucker and Zac Brown. To honor America, Rucker offered his rendition of “God Bless The U.S.A.,” while Brown segued “America the Beautiful” into his fan-favorite “Chicken Fried.”
