Miranda Lambert's MuttNation helped 61 dogs find forever homes during its fourth annual CMA Fest Adoption Drive on June 6-9. Since its inception in 2016, the Adoption Drive has collaborated with the Nashville Humane Society to help more than 210 shelter dogs find homes.

To get the Adoption Drive kicked off on June 6, more than 1,300 animals lovers--including Miranda, mom Bev, Dan + Shay's Dan Smyers and wife Abby--took part in the one-mile Mutt March through downtime Nashville, which helped raise funds and awareness for shelter pet adoption.

"To the uninitiated, it probably sounded like dogs barking," said Miranda. "But to me, knowing the pure joy that comes with owning a rescue dog--or eight--it was music to my ears. We were all marching on behalf of MuttNation to raise awareness for shelter pet adoption and in support of animal rescues across the country--and because it's fun and it's our passion"

Miranda and Bev started the MuttNation Foundation in 2009, an organization with the mission of ending animal suffering and homelessness on every front. The foundation has successfully raised millions of dollars to aid organizations, government institutions and entities that build animal shelters for better care and increased pet adoption.

Charles Esten continued his long-running philanthropic work with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society during his "Light the Summer Night" benefit concert at Nashville's 3rd & Lindsley on June 6th.

The inaugural event, which was hosted by Shawn Parr and featured performances by Charles, Lee Brice, Eric Paslay, Jillian Cardarelli, Taylor Noelle, LaLa Deaton, The Adelaides, Andrew Rollins and Deana Carter, helped raise more than $27,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Over the years, Charles has helped raise more than $1.1 million for leukemia research with his annual Light the Night Walk (7 years) and Light the Late Night Concert (5 years).

Helping fund leukemia research is a passion project for Charles and wife Patty, as their 19-year-old daughter Addie survived leukemia when she was a toddler.

"Addie has been healthy and cancer-free for over 17 beautiful years," says Charles. "Last year, she started playing Division I soccer in college. I am honored to continue to serve as the Light the Night Honorary Chair. We raise money for this amazing organization, so that others might have the chance at the cancer-free life that our Addie has been blessed with."

Charles' eighth annual Light the Night Walk and Light the Late Night Concert are scheduled for Nov. 1.
