Dixie Chicks to Headline 2018 Matt, Jack & McConaughey Gala
The Dixie Chicks will take the stage together to help raise money for kids at the 2018 Mack, Jack & McConaughey Gala this April.
Held at Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas on April 12, MJ&M will benefit organizations dedicated to children’s education, health and wellness, including CureDuchenne, Dell Children’s Medical Center, HeartGift, Just Keep Livin Foundation, and the Rise School of Austin.
It's the sixth-annual fundraising event, launched by actor Matthew McConaughey, country singer Jack Ingram, and ESPN analyst and Texas coaching legend Mack Brown. So far, more than $7.5 million has been raised for children through MJ&M.

“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,” Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines says.
According to their website, this April show is the only performance the Dixie Chicks have scheduled for 2018. Tickets for the April 12 gala can be purchased starting March 2. Tickets range from $99-$269 and can be bought via TicketFly.com.
“The Dixie Chicks are incredible artists and we are looking forward to their performance,” McConaughey says. Ingram is also excited for a fellow country act to take the stage.
"Every year the music at MJ&M just gets better and better and this year is certainly no exception. We are honored to have the Dixie Chicks headline the gala concert,” he says.
Following the gala on April 12, a golf tournament will be held on April 13 at Spanish Oaks Golf Club. The event will wrap later that night with the Jack & Friends concert with performances by Patty Griffin, Butch Walker, John Fullbright and more.
