NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Several country artists and performers took to the stage on Tuesday night to help raise money for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

The eighth annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit was held at the historic Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville.

The event, featuring Vince Gill, Jake Owen and Florida Georgia Line, was hosted by songwriter Craig Wiseman.

"This is the night that Music Row gives back to help feed our hungry neighbors," said Jaynee Day, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. "It is a show that I wouldn't want to miss and we are encouraging all of our supporters and country music fans to attend and help raise our voices to fight hunger."

Officials from Second Harvest Food Bank said in the past seven years, the concert has raised more than $446,000 to help feed hungry families throughout the Mid-State.

This year's event was sponsored by O'Charley's.
