Hosted by Charles Esten, the one-night-only concert featured Trace Adkins, Jimmie Allen, Charles Esten, Cassadee Pope, Tyler Rich, Runaway June, Kelsea Ballerini, Morgan Evans and more. All net proceeds from the event will benefit Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victim’s Fund, which supports recovery efforts related to the shooting at Borderline.

In addition to the country talent on hand, there were a number of celebrities in attendance, including actor Casey Affleck, actress/singer Hailee Steinfeld and model Sabina Gadecki, who is engaged to Tyler Rich. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, also made a surprise appearance. After Charles Esten introduced him, Arnold shared some words of support for the crowd before introducing Trace Adkins’ performance.
