Jennifer Nettles, Jack Ingram, Jerrod Niemann Giving Back This Weekend
Jennifer Nettles, Jack Ingram, and Jerrod Niemann are giving back this weekend with benefit concerts. Nettles and Ingram are supporting creativity with their show. The event, taking place Saturday at the Murchison Performing Arts Center in Denton, Texas, benefits Attic Community Playground -- a non-profit organization whose goal is to support the performing arts. Jennifer has credited the art programs available to her as a child for her career in music. Proceeds from the show will go to the Ponder High School and Choir Program in Ponder, Texas and the music program at The Museum School of Avondale Estates, Georgia, which is a suburb of Nettles' adopted hometown of Atlanta. Niemann, meanwhile is also supporting education with his show -- and he's giving back to his hometown in the process. The singer will play a special homecoming concert Saturday night for his old school, Liberal High School in Liberal, Kansas. Money generated at the event will go to the school's booster club.
