When the annual CMA Festival comes to Nashville, it’s sure to bring with it lots of music, that’s a given, but it also brings fun events where fans can interact with their favorite country stars and worthy causes enter the spotlight alongside their big-hearted celebrity supporters. One of those events was the Celebrity Go-Go Go-Kart and Mini-Golf Challenge on Tuesday, June 4 at Grand Old Golf & Games.
This was the second annual Go-Go Challenge with ticket sales benefiting Hear The Music Live, a non-profit organization helping to bring the excitement of live shows to kids in foster care, group homes, or orphanages by giving them concert tickets and an unforgettable experience. Steven Nornhold founded Hear The Music Live in 2009 and since then, over 5,000 kids have rocked out at concerts around the country.
Some of the good-spirited country stars getting their go-kart on and putting their mini-golf skills to the test were Beth Cayhall, Bo Bice, Bucky Covington, Jared Blake, Samantha Landrum and Susan Ashton. Every participant won or lost with dignity and grace, all while wearing cowboy boots, of course.
