Blake Shelton Joins Usher to Sing ‘Stand by Me’ at Hand in Hand Benefit [Watch]
Their performance came second in the lineup during the hour-long benefit, which aired across all four major networks and CMT on Tuesday to raise funds for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, following a chill-inducing intro from Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who shared stories from the floods that followed the terrible weather.
Shelton and Usher performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Shelton is also co-hosting the Nashville portion of the Hand in Hand benefit, with other portions airing from Universal Studios in California and Times Square in New York City.
Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, former Nashville star Connie Britton, Shelton’s girlfriend Gwen Stefani and more are also set to take part in the benefit. Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen are on board to join George Strait for the close of the show, which will air from San Antonio’s Majestic Theatre.
