[Wide Open Country] Nashville’s ‘Concert for Love and Acceptance’ Puts Pride Front and Center in Music City

An eclectic cast of musicians and celebrities gathered to celebrate Pride at the Concert For Love And Acceptance in Nashville. Presented by GLAAD and Ty Herndon, the star-studded event took place during CMA Fest at Nashville’s newly renovated Wildhorse Saloon.

Now in its third year, the concert to “accelerate acceptance” of the LGBTQ community greeted a sold out crowd. CMT’s Cody Alan hosted the event, quipping his pin stripe suit was “the only straight thing about me.” One of country media’s most recognizable faces and voices, Alan came out as gay in early 2017.
