Come See Billy Yates Live at the Annual “Countriest of the Country” Concert!

Helping children in Middle Tennessee have a brighter Christmas

Christmas for the Children is proud to count country superstar Billy Yates as one of our longest-running and most generous supporters. His annual “Countriest of the Country” concert features a full lineup of country stars who come together every year to help us raise money for children in need. We’ve spent the last 16 years teaming up with Billy, and we’re thrilled that he’s back again to help us out!

Tickets start at only $20.00, and all proceeds go directly to support Christmas for the Children. The concert is sponsored by the Billy Yates International Fan Club, featuring “20 Artists for 20 Bucks.” This year’s event will be held at a local venue, so please check back often for updates. We promise we’ll have the dates and times for the show and for ticket sales soon! We will also update the list of performers as soon as we know more. More artists are joining every day, so you might see a few surprises at the concert this year!

More about Billy Yates

Billy Yates is an award-winning international country music star from Doniphan, Missouri. His most recent tour, “Too Country,” traveled as far away as Denmark, Holland, Norway and Switzerland, proving two things: one, that Billy’s a true star, and two, that there’s no music like country music!

Can this year’s event beat out any previous years for the best?

Last year’s “Countriest of the Country” concert was quite a show! The 2015 concert – and those in previous years – had lineups including:

  • T. Graham Brown
  • Jimmy Fortune
  • Jason Crabb,
  • Mo Pitney
  • Jeff Bates
  • Buddy Jewell
  • Jeannie Seely
  • Larry Gatlin
  • Gene Watson
  • Chris Young
  • Joe Diffie
  • Marty Raybon
  • Julie Roberts
  • Teea Goans
  • Lu Lu Roman
  • Emi Sunshine
  • John Berry
  • Emily Brooke
  • Grayson Yates
  • Colin Raye
  • Darryl Worley
  • Bill Anderson
  • Rhonda Vincent
  • Highway 101
  • Darryl Singletary

We also had guest host Keith Bilbrey, whose “Hit Songwriters in the Round” featured Buddy Cannon, Whitey Shafer, and Dallas Frazier. And this past, we had hometown legend and runner-up on American Idol Clark Beckham! We can’t wait to see what the 2016 lineup will bring us.
