The biggest names in country music are teaming up to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital this week.

Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and others are set to perform in the upcoming Music Gives: Together #forStJude, a free, virtual concert hosted by CMT’s Marley Sherwood and Cody Alan that will “entertain, inspire, and highlight the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.”

Other A-list performers taking part in the livestream event include Brett Eldredge, Darius Rucker, Lady A, Third Eye Blind, Jason Mraz, and Randy Owen with Alabama.

"Summertime often brings people together for a favorite pastime: music festivals," Richard C. Shadyac, Jr., the president and CEO of ALASC, St. Jude's charity arm, said in a news release. "During this time of social distancing, the incredible ambassadors and celebrity friends of St. Jude are ensuring that our summer does not go by without one, and leveraging their talent to make a huge difference for the children of the world."

The fun, which will take place across six virtual stages, begins Thursday, August 13 at 5p.m. ET. Fans can tune in on St. Jude's Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok accounts.

To make it feel as much like an in-person festival as possible, food will also be involved. According to a press release, the concert will include "intermissions with culinary content from some of America's most recognized chefs to make at home and enjoy during the festivities."
