article imageJake Owen and friends raise money for Kids Cancer Alliance

Country singer Jake Owen is a musician with a big heart. He and his fellow country artists joined together for "Concert for the Cause," a special show at the Ice House in Louisville, Kentucky, for children with cancer.
They helped raise over $200,000 for the non-profit organization, Kids Cancer Alliance. This charity started in 1981 as a joint effort between a group of volunteers in the Lake Cumberland area and the Kentucky Cancer Program. Their mission was to provide a "normal" camping experience for children with cancer.
Ever since, it has grown exponentially and it offers oncology and sibling camps, teen and family retreats, quarterly events and in-hospital programs, as well as financial support all completely free to children with cancer and their families.
In addition to Owen who headlined the event, this star-studded line-up on country singers included Warner Music Group recording artists Frankie Ballard and Jana Kramer, as well as Paul Overstreet, Jason Sturgeon, Ilya Toshinsky, Scotty Emerick, Josh Osborne, Ben Bradford and Olivia Lane.
The musicians performed in an intimate, acoustic setting and they played "in the round." There was a live and silent auction that also took place, as well as an after-party with DJ, remixer and producer Dee Jay Silver.
