Hunter Hayes has stood up to help some kids in need have a very Merry Christmas. The rising country star is just one of the country artists who will participate in the 2014 Christmas 4 Kids Tour Bus Show.

Jeff Bates, T.G. Sheppard, Kelly Lang, Danielle Peck, Jan Howard, Shelly West, Bryan White, Bo Bice, Buddy Jewell, the Roys, Ashton Shepherd, Guy Gilchrist and more will also take part in the annual event, which takes place this year on Dec. 16.

More than 400 underprivileged children from 29 different Middle Tennessee schools will participate in a day-long shopping excursion, beginning with a chauffeured trip from their school aboard an entertainer's luxury tour bus. The event includes dinner and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Hendersonville Expo Center near Nashville. Afterward, the tour buses head to the Hendersonville Walmart, where the kids receive a new winter coat and $150.00 to spend on anything they'd like.

Christmas 4 Kids is a non-profit organization that has served the needs of children in Middle Tennessee for more than 25 years. More information is available here.
