The Dixie Chicks are coming together to support a good cause: the 2018 Mack, Jack & McConaughey Gala!
According to Taste of Country, the trio is going to headline the gala this April in Austin, Texas.
MJ&M benefits organizations that support children’s education, health, and wellness. Recipients include Dell Children’s Medical Center, Just Keep Livin Foundation, the Rise School of Austin, and HeartGift. Also, the event’s founders are actor Matthew McConaughey, singer Jack Ingram, and former football coach Mack Brown.
While discussing the Dixie Chicks headlining the event, McConaughey said:
“The Dixie Chicks are incredible artists and we are looking forward to their performance. Every year the music at MJ&M just gets better and better and this year is certainly no exception.”
Lead singer Natalie Maines also gave a statement, saying:
“It’s always fun to play in Texas and supporting this incredible charity event which empowers kids and saves lives, is an opportunity we are inspired to be a part of.”
This is the gala’s sixth year running, and tickets for the even go on sale on March 2nd. After it ends, a golf tournament will take place the following day, and the entire event will wrap up that same night with a Jack & Friends concert.
