Nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow and ‘Days of Gold’ hitmaker Jake Owen are part of the star-studded lineup that will play for the 6th annual T.J. Martell Honors Gala on March 10, 2014.

The T.J. Martell Honors Gala is one of Music City’s most high profile annual fundraisers. Through its efforts, it brings together celebrities with business, medical, sports and entertainment industry leaders to raise awareness for innovative cancer research. And having some of country music’s biggest stars on stage will help shine the spotlight on cancer research and the needs within.

Crow and Owen will join trio Blue Sky Riders as well as previously announced top acts Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and Darius Rucker to pay tribute to this year’s honorees, with ‘Nashville’ actor Charles (Chip) Esten hosting.

The honorees for the 2014 Honors Gala were announced in January, and include Nashville real estate visionary Mark Bloom, music industry icons Dale Morris and Mike Dungan, entrepreneur Beth Dortch Franklin and cancer research pioneer Scott Hiebert.

The T.J. Martell Foundation is the music industry’s largest foundation that funds innovative medical research focused on finding cures for leukemia, cancer and AIDS. It was founded in 1975 by music industry executive Tony Martell and his colleagues, in loving memory of his son, T.J., who died of leukemia. It has provided more than $260 million for research at top hospitals in the United States.

This isn’t the first time country stars have been involved in cancer research. Martina McBride‘s fans raised over $25K for the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville through the T.J. Martell Foundation, and country group Little Big Town participates in Ride for the Cure, which combines motorcycles and music.
