Kellie Pickler and Casey James played to a sold-out crowd in Nashville earlier this week for the Musicians On Call Benefit concert at the Hard Rock Cafe. The intimate concert raised over $10,000 for the charity with proceeds going towards a new bed-side program for the charity, launching in January. This event marks the eleventh live music program benefit since Musicians On Call opened their Nashville chapter in 2007.
Kellie entertained the crowd with new songs from her upcoming album “100 Proof,” being released on January 24th, 2012. She expressed her gratitude to the program:
“Thank you so much for everyone who’s been a part of Musicians On Call. You’ve put a lot of smiles on people’s faces!”
