On Sunday, June 3, Brad Paisley, Chris Young, Lindsay Ell, and Charles Esten took the stage at downtown Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon for Brad and his wife's annual Dance Party to End Alzheimer.
All artists who participated sang their best pop, rock and country music from the 80s and, in the process, raised money for the continued fight for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
Prior to the start of the show, host Kimberly Williams Paisley explained, “I lost my mom to Alzheimer’s a year and a half ago, and that was obviously very emotional, but I want tonight to mostly focus on people coming together with hope, and with joy, and with community to work together because we all really need to work together to fight this disease.”
Kimberly’s co-host, media personality Blair Garner, added, “At the end of the day, I think what we do with our lives is try to leave our world a little bit kinder, a little bit gentler. If there is anything that we can do to help those with adversity, we are so blessed to be where we are and be given the blessings we have, it is incumbent upon us to somehow try and turn that and help those who may need a hand up.”
