In 2018 the Mack, Jack & McConaughey Gala raised more than $2 million for local children’s charities in Austin, Texas. And now Mack Brown, Jack Ingram and Matthew McConaughey have announced that the headlining musical act for the 2019 gala will be Grammy award-winning Chris Stapleton. Now in its seventh year, the two-day event will be held at ACL Live at The Moody Theater on April 25, 2019 and continues on April 26 with a golf tournament at Spanish Oaks Golf Club and New York-style runway show and luncheon at the Hilton Hotel.
“Chris Stapleton is such a talented musician and we are so excited to welcome him to our MJ&M gala,” said McConaughey. “His unique blend of country, classic rock and Southern soul will captivate music fans and give them a night to remember.” McConaughey, along with UT coaching legend Brown and recording artist Ingram, team up every year to help raise money to support the charities CureDuchenne, Dell Children’s Medical Center, HeartGift, just keep livin Foundation and The Rise School of Austin.
