Brett Eldredge, Darius Rucker and Chris Stapleton To Be Featured on CMT Special

Brett Eldredge, Darius Rucker and Chris Stapleton are set to appear on CMT Hometown Heroes a special airing March 31st at 10 pm ET. The show will follow all three stars as they visit, and give back, to their hometowns.

Powered by Ram Nation, the truck brand’s grassroots volunteer network, the one-hour special will follow each artist as they do good in the places that shaped them and offer in-depth interviews, plus exclusive performances.

CMT Hometown Heroes will follow Stapleton’s trip home last year to Paintsville, Kentucky, where he surprised the music program at his high school alma mater Johnson Central High School with new instruments and a new outdoor performance pavilion.

Rucker returns home to Charleston, South Carolina, to remodel and redecorate the teen room at MUSC Children’s Hospital, where he spent much of his childhood with his mother who was a nurse.

Eldredge goes home to Paris, Illinois, where he helps refurbish Laker Stadium, the baseball fields near where he grew up. His portion of the show will feature a surprise concert at his beloved high school gymnasium.
