Country's top stars raised a lot of money for charity last week during the CMA Music Festival. Florida Georgia Line 's appearance at the Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert brought in more than $142,000 for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. The concert is now in its 10th year and has raised more than $750,000 to help feed the hungry in the Nashville area.

Darius Rucker 's fifth annual Darius and Friends benefit concert and golf tournament brought in more than $122,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, to help them offer free care to children fighting cancer. Lady Antebellum 's Charles Kelley , Dustin Lynch , Thompson Square , David Nail , Eli Young Band , Cassadee Pope , and Kenny Rogers were among the stars taking part in Darius's events during CMA Music Fest week.
