Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney + More Donate Personal Items for eBay Auction
With the gift-giving holiday quickly approaching, country's hottest stars are donating some special items to the Country Music Blooms Online Auction, benefiting the Nashville Music Garden.
The Country Music Blooms Online Auction is set to launch on Black Friday (Nov. 25), and will include rare goods straight from the stars' personal closets. Some of the items that will be up for auction include a trademark cowboy hat owned, worn and autographed by Kenny Chesney, LeAnn Rimes' gold dress worn during the 2010 'CMA Country Christmas' special, a pair of Miranda Lambert's cowboy boots that she bought for her very first tour (which have been autographed), Sara Evans' gown that was worn to the 2008 CMA Awards and a pair of Opry Legend Little Jimmy Dickens' autographed cowboy boots.
Other country music heavyweights donating items will include Carrie Underwood, Brooks and Dunn, Darius Rucker, Barbara Mandrell, Love and Theft, Danny Gokey and Darryl Worley. Items donated by those stars will include meet & greet passes, concert tickets and much more.
All proceeds raised from the auction will go to raise awareness and funding for the Nashville Music Garden, a one-of-a-kind public garden in downtown Nashville that pays tribute to the artists, songs and industry leaders who have contributed to making Music City one of the most unique cities in the world. The Nashville Music Garden is sustained by a fund established through the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a 501c3 non-profit organization. To ensure that the garden continues to grow for the community and country music fans to enjoy, the fund must be supported.
Fans can access the auction goods on eBay starting on November 25 (Black Friday). Bidding will end on Monday, December 5.
