It just warms my heart that this is taking place. It’s on our anniversary and Jay and I both saying, ‘We can’t think of a better way to spend our anniversary than to be helping.’” Alabama, Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler and Ashton Shepherd are among the artists joining Sara for the concert tonight at Birmingham’s BJCC Arena.
