City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game
The weather was perfect for one of the most charming CMA Fest-week traditions: the 27th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game. Athletes and musicians converged on First Tennessee Park, where they joined Team Grand Ole Opry or Team iHeart to raise funds for City of Hope, a research and treatment center for cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Reba McEntire sang the national anthem, Sara Evans handled "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and players like Billy Ray Cyrus, Lauren Alaina and Aaron Watson provided the athletics. The winner? Team iHeart, 9-6. B.M.
