Ty Herndon‘s Concert for Love and Acceptance just got a little bigger. Following the first round of stars announced for the event, Herndon will welcome Trent Harmon to perform.

Mickey Guyton and comedian Dana Goldberg have also been added to the 2017 lineup.

Harmon rose to fame after winning the final season of American Idol in 2016. His first single, “There’s a Girl,” is currently in the Top 30 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. Guyton had a breakthrough on the country scene when she made her debut in 2015 with the single “Better Than You Left Me.” Her latest single is “Heartbreak Song.”

The new batch of stars join previously announced acts such as Michael RayThompson Square, ToC RISERS trio Runaway JuneThe Voice season 11 runner-up Billy Gilman and newcomers Ryan Kinder and Kree Harrison. Lorrie Morgan and the Street Corner Symphony are also set to participate, while CMT’s Cody Alan has also been tapped to host this year’s event.

“In 2015, our event sold out weeks before the show,” Herndon says in a press release.  “We are looking forward to another great night of music and celebration of love and acceptance.”

Herndon started the Concert for Love and Acceptance in two years ago in partnership with GLAAD. The event serves as a benefit for at-risk youth with a mission “to foster positive cultural change and encourage Nashville’s youth to live to their fullest potential.” Past attendees include Nashville‘s Chris CarmackLevi Hummon, Meghan Linsey and more.

The 2017 concert takes place June 8 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville.
