Additionally, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Katie Pruitt, Kendell Marvel, Old Crow Medicine Show, Sadler Vaden, Soccer Mommy and Yola also performed.

All the proceeds made at the show went to the people of Nashville affected by the recent tornadoes.

“It just feels so good to be with you,” Carlile, said during her two-song set of “The Eye” and “The Joke.” “It was so hard to sit home with everything you’ve been through. We don’t live here, but it’s times like these where I know Nashville is my home.”

“I’ve seen a lot of things, but I’ve never seen a community come together the way that this community has come together in the wake of this tragedy,” she added. “It’s been beyond inspiring. Not only will you recover from this, but you are recovering from this in a way that is shocking the world.”
