Nashville Zoo Fundraiser on Thursday Features Country Superstars


It's no secret that the Nashville Zoo has been exceptionally hard hit by the COVID-19 restrictions that kept the attraction locked down through spring and most of the summer. To help offset some of the expenses associated with taking care of all of the animals in their care, some of Nashville's biggest superstars are coming together for a huge fundraising effort.

From Nashville Zoo with Love will be a primetime fundraising special on Channel 2 Thursday night, featuring zoo animals, celebrity guest appearances, and musical performances from Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, and Amy Grant.

During the broadcast, which will be hosted by Scott Hamilton and News 2's Neil Orne, you'll be able to bid on auction items, including special Zoo animal experiences and sports and music memorabillia.

To see some of the items up for auction, including a signed guitar by Taylor Swift, a Predators-autographed hockey stick, and some pretty amazing animal encounters, check out the website here.

From Nashville Zoo with Love airs at 7:00 on Thursday night on Channel 2 (WKRN).
