Lesser known musicians like Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Leon Bridges, and Lyle Lovett are among the others expected to perform during the fundraising show.

In addition to the musical performances, actors Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger, who are both Texas natives, are both scheduled to make special appearances during the event.
