The St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund recently announced singer-songwriter Levi Hummon will headline the organization’s benefit concert “Highway to Hope” to be hel;d Saturday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. ET at the Cotton Eyed Joe nightclub in Knoxville, Tennessee.
There will also be a special pre-show concert for VIPs, sponsors, and partners of the St. Christopher Fund that will feature a performance by the Lindsay Lawler Band and special guest Dave Nemo of RadioNemo.
This will be Lawler’s second appearance at a Highway to Hope concert after she joined headliner Wynonna Judd and other fellow country music artists, including John Schneider, Billy Dean and Heath Sanders for the inaugural Highway to Hope virtual, live-streamed concert in 2021. The inaugural concert raised more than $75,000 to help support professional over-the-road and regional drivers recently out of work because of an injury or illness.
Tickets for the concert are available for $20 in advance at ‘Highway to Hope’ at the Cotton Eyed Joe’ and $25 at the door. All of the proceeds from the concert will go directly to the SCF to support truck drivers in need.
Tickets for the VIP pre-show concert with Lindsay Lawler and Dave Nemo are also available at ‘Highway to Hope VIP’ at the Cotton Eyed Joe for $99 and the password is HOPE. The VIP pre-show concert is from 4:30 – 6:00 pm ET. The VIP ticket includes food, two drink tickets, and the private concert.
Hummon is the son of GRAMMY-winning songwriter Marcus Hummon, and has opened for country music artists Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, and Lady Antebellum and performed multiple shows at the Grand Ole Opry.
Lawler is a singer, songwriter, radio host, and Nashville-based entrepreneur, and is well-known in the trucking community. She is the national spokeswoman for the Truckload Carriers Association's Highway Angel program, which recognizes drivers who have saved lives on the road. Her song, Highway Angel, has become an anthem for truck drivers everywhere.
“Our mission at the SCF, and the support we provide to truck drivers across this country, is built around HOPE,” says Shannon Currier, Director of Philanthropy and Development with St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund. “When a driver reaches out to us, they are already dealing with an illness or injury and the thought of the financial hardship and loss of income leaves them feeling hopeless. We are there to fill them with hope, assist them with supporting their families and getting back out on the road.”
