NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Florida Georgia Line performed an acoustic set at the historic Ryman Auditorium Tuesday to raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank.
The Nashville-based non-profit is working to help feed kids who qualify for free or reduced lunch during summer break.
"Because of the summer feeding program that we are able to offer last year we were able to feed over 1,600 children and that equates to over 190,000 meals that we were able to provide during the summer months," said Jaynee Day, president.
Florida Georgia Line said they were happy to take a break from the CMA Fest parties to help be a part of Second Harvest's efforts.
"It's amazing 3rd running for us to be a part of it it's incredible to be back and headline again but more importantly to raise more awareness more money for those that need food," Brian Kelley said. "We've been doing feeding America outnumber hunger campaign since January it's just been incredible."
