COUNTRY MUSIC’S BIGGEST STARS RALLY AROUND LOVE AND THEFT'S STEPHEN BARKER LILES IN SUPPORT OF HIS MOTHER'S ALS DIAGNOSIS WITH SHINE FOR SUSIE BENEFIT CONCERT

Nashville, Tenn. - Shining light on ALS and showing their support for Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Lilies and family, country music’s biggest stars come together for an acoustic filled evening at the Historic Ryman Auditorium on December 4, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. to benefit The ALS Association of Tennessee and the Burchett & Liles Family in their fight against ALS together.

Tyler Farr will also join friends and fellow artists Love and Theft, Florida Georgia Line, Jerrod Niemann, Craig Campbell, Canaan Smith, Trent Tomlinson, The Warren Brothers, and Stevie Monce for a night of hope and healing. The evening will be hosted by SiriusXM The Highway’s Storme Warren, Stephen Baker Liles from Love and Theft and Dee Jay Silver.

Concert tickets go on sale Friday, October 20, 2017 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com, the Ryman box office, www.ryman.com and by phone 800.745.3000. Tickets are $125, $75 and $55.

Shine for Susie ALS Benefit Concert was formed as a partnership between The ALS Association of Tennessee and the Burchett & Liles Family to raise funds in the fight against ALS. Susie Burchett, mother of Stephen Barker Liles from Love and Theft, was diagnosed with ALS in March of 2017.

Together, our efforts are helping to improve the daily lives of people living with ALS, including Susie’s.

“I've had the privilege of helping with many charities through the years, but when the cause touches your life, it changes everything,” said Stephen Barker Liles from Love and Theft. “When my mother was diagnosed with ALS, in March of this year, I was devastated. But I also felt called to make a difference to help her and others through my musical platform. I'm incredibly grateful for some of my dear friends who are joining me to shine light through our music and bring hope to millions.”

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. For unknown reasons, NFL players are four times as likely to develop ALS and veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population.

The simple fact is, ALS can strike anyone, anytime.

“There are so many important causes that merit our support,” said Burchett and Liles Family. “Often however, we don't choose those causes...they choose us. For our family, having our mother, wife, grandmother diagnosed with ALS presented a galvanizing opportunity to support the needed cause of ALS. We hope this event will provide more awareness, funds for research, and financial support to all touched by this debilitating disease.”

"We are thrilled to curate this first-of-its-kind unique concert experience for the Tennessee Chapter alongside the Burchett and Liles Family. The enthusiasm and willingness this family has brought to the table to secure some of the industry's most talented artists to perform is truly amazing. They continue to work tirelessly with our team to create an unforgettable musical experience," said Steve Wallace, CEO of The ALS Association of Tennessee.

“Our Chapter is truly grateful to have this important partnership and we are thankful to all the musical guests, who have graciously lent their time and talents to support the Association’s efforts in brightening the lives of ALS patients and families in our community," said Wallace

About Chancey Williams and The Younger Brothers Band:
Saddle bronc rider turned country singer-songwriter, Chancey Williams has gone from competing on horseback to performing on center stage at major rodeos. The only artist besides Chris LeDoux to both ride and entertain at the world’s “Daddy of ‘Em All” rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days, Williams is the authentic next cowboy of country music. Growing up on a ranch in the Cowboy State (Wyoming), Williams learned the cowboy-way-of-life from his father, and like his dad, Williams found himself a successful bronc rider, winning the National High School Rodeo Finals, the College National Finals and a couple rounds at Cheyenne Frontier Days. In 2013 Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band released their first album, Echo, which graced the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. In July 2015, the group released the single for “Down With That," which earned the 2016 Rocky Mountain CMA Song of the Year award. The “Down With That” music video amassed over 180k views on YouTube. Williams and the Younger Brothers Band have opened for their heroes (Chris LeDoux, Merle Haggard, Alabama, Dwight Yoakam), as well as several current mainstream country acts (Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church). The band released their sophomore album, Rodeo Cold Beer, on May 19.
