Concert for Cumberland Heights

A Night of Stories & Song

Concert for Cumberland Heights 2024

Join us for an evening of Stories and Songs featuring performances by Charles Kelley, Bob DiPiero, Victoria Shaw, Randy Montana, The Warren Brothers, Dylan Altman, Ernest, John McAndrew and other surprise guests. This event not only promises an incredible night of entertainment but also supports a worthy cause.

The Concert for Cumberland Heights began in 1996 to benefit the John Hiatt Fund for Adolescent and Young Adult Treatment, which provides support for programs and patient scholarship assistance.

Through the generosity of donors, the concert has raised more than $3.6 million over the years to bring hope and healing to teenagers, young adults, and their families.

Charles Kelley


Stepping outside of one of the world’s most popular groups, Charles Kelley explores new territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier key than what listeners have been hearing from him in a group setting. “The Driver” serves as the lead single from his upcoming first-ever solo release and was born in a ratty studio in the back of producer Paul Worley’s office. His unmatched perspective of hours spent on the road pursuing a life-long dream is present through his impeccable voice. In addition to his success as part of seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady A, Kelley has also penned No. 1 hits recorded by Luke Bryan and Darius Rucker.

“As a person two years into my sobriety journey, I have a strong connection to the work that Cumberland Heights does,” shared Charles Kelley. “I love that I’m able to lend my voice to help raise funds to help others struggling with the same condition.”


Since his first No. 1 hit in 1983, Hall of Fame Songwriter Bob DiPiero has been responsible for an uninterrupted string of country music hits. He has had over 1,000 songs recorded by other artists, countless hit singles, and an astounding fifteen No. 1 hits. Among his countless awards are 50 BMI Million-Air honors, multiple Songwriter of the Year awards and two consecutive Triple Play awards for three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period. In 2007, Bob was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Nashville’s Walk of Fame. In 2014, the Country Music Hall of Fame honored Bob with their prestigious “Poets and Prophets Series: Salute to Legendary Songwriter Bob DiPiero” and the Country Music Association also presented Bob with the CMA Chairman’s Award. On November 7, 2017, Bob DiPiero received yet another incredible honor when BMI presented him with their prestigious Icon Award celebrating his outstanding career achievement and honoring his unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.


The Nashville-based, New York-born, Los Angeles-raised triple threat has either written or produced some of music’s most memorable tunes and performed on the world’s biggest stages.

Victoria’s No. 1 compositions include Garth Brooks “The River” and “She’s Every Woman,” Ricky Martin’s “Solo Quiero Amarte,” Doug Stone’s “Too Busy Being in Love,” Jim Brickman’s “Sending You a Little Christmas” and “I Love the Way You Love Me,” recorded by John Michael Montgomery and Boyzone. Other hits include Ricky Martin and Christina Aguilera’s duet “Nobody Wants to Be Lonely” and the Garth Brooks/Trisha Yearwood duet “Where Your Road Leads.”

Shaw is the recipient of an ACM award for Song of the Year, two daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Original Song, four Emmy nominations and numerous ASCAP and SESAC awards. She has performed throughout the world, including opening for Garth Brooks in Central Park, playing the London Palladium, and touring with her friend and frequent collaborator, Jim Brickman.

Shaw is also a music producer including co-producing Lady Antebellum’s debut album for which Shaw won a 2009 CMA award for Single of the Year, “I Run to You.”


Hit country songwriter Randy Montana is a master of many moods. He can put his power behind an achingly bittersweet ballad like Carly Pearce; Lee Brice’s “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” shake off wrecked romance with a shrugging smirk on Luke Combs’ “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” and turn gently reflective on George Strait’s “When the Credits Roll.” But wherever Montana’s coming from, he makes an emotional spark every time out.


The Warren Brothers are a songwriting duo that have written hits for Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Keith Urban, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Chris Young to name a few. They started as recording artists and made 3 records for BNA records.

Their sense of humor has landed them a series on CMT, celebrity judges on “Nashville Star,” part time radio personalities, and they’ve even had a few film cameos. They won a daytime Emmy for outstanding original song for “Good Afternoon America”. They were Nominated for a Grammy for best country song “If You’re Reading This” (Tim McGraw) and CMA song of the year “Anyway” (Martina McBride).


Originally from the great state of New Jersey, Dylan Altman has been writing and performing in Nashville since 1994. He has had three No. 1 songs: Tim McGraw’s “Watch The Wind Blow By,” Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” Jason Aldean’s “Take A Little Ride,” as well as Chase Bryant’s top ten hit “Take It On Back”. Other artists who have recorded his songs include Trace Adkins, Eli Young Band, Joe Nichols, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. He’s also the host of his own cooking/music show on YouTube, Dylan Altman’s Soul Stew.
