Starting at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT on Wednesday, May 20, over 40 of the biggest stars in country music are coming together (virtually) via Country Music Television to hold an all-day benefit concert called Feeding the Front Line Live. The concerts are happening at three different times throughout the day — three separate “mealtime” streams will take place during breakfast (10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT), lunch (2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT) and dinner (8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT).
On Instagram, McGraw, who is playing during all three segments, said it is a concert “like you’ve never seen before.” Actress/singer Rita Wilson chimed in with, “So happy to be a part of this with you!” and the official CMT Instagram account added, “We can’t wait! It’s going to be EPIC.”
The benefit promises to be a star-studded day of entertainment. The live streams are embedded below.

All donations made during the virtual benefit concert will support Feed the Front Line, “a youth-led nonprofit that buys meals from struggling restaurants and donates it to frontline heroes, essential workers, and other people in need during COVID-19. Before, during and after each stream, fans will have the opportunity to make donations directly to Feed The Front Line by visiting ftfl.org/give to contribute.”
In the two months since Feed the Front Line was founded, it has already provided over 50,000 meals to front line workers and raised nearly half a million dollars for restaurants and their employees.
This is just the latest in a string of COVID-19 relief fundraisers. Others have included ACM Presents: Our Country, the One World: Together at Home telethon and concert, the Jersey 4 Jersey Benefit Concert, and the Parks and Recreation cast reunion episode.
The Feed the Frontline Live benefit concert airs throughout the day Wednesday, May 20, beginning at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT.
