Founded in 2008 by Louisville, Kentucky native and artist manager, Josh Bleidt, who saw the opportunity to utilize music and celebrity-driven events to raise awareness and funds for a variety of causes. Throughout its nearly two-decade history, Concerts 4 A Cause has raised well over two million dollars to assist children’s hospitals, veterans organizations, flood and tornado relief, music education, first responders, and more.

In April 2023, in a partnership with Nancy Jones, over $82,000 was raised for two police officers wounded in the line duty prior to the Still Playin’ Possum: Music and Memories of George Jones concert event.   In December 2023, over $110,000 was raised through the guitars4cops.com promotion in association with The Wounded Blue, a 501c3 org.  In February 2024, over $88,000 was raised to benefit the children of late-country singer Daryle Singletary. 

Their events have been featured nationally on outlets such as Newsmax, Fox News, CMT, GAC, Honkytonk TV, RFD-TV, Heartland, just to name a few.


Josh’s first taste of the music industry came when he ran a production and marketing company with industry veterans Marc Oswald, manager of Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson and others, and singer, songwriter and host Gary Chapman.  Through Josh’s dealings with these musicians, he felt a strong need to help bridge the gap of what these artists needed when it came to a charitable partner.  He formed Concerts 4 A Cause in 2008 as a result. Halfway to Hazard was the first group on board to support the cause and the rest is history.  Josh not only manages Chad’s solo career and Halfway to Hazard, but also manages pro bowl honor kicker Rob Bironas of the Tennessee Titans and works with UFC Superstar Rich Franklin. He also serves his Alma Mater on the EKU International Alumni Association Board and his college fraternity’s National Council/Board of Directors. Josh has taken on a consultant role with the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and is helping coordinate a possible HOF tour, developing new and innovative programing in conjunction with the HOF and is continuing to work on their already successful Stars over Appalachia program.  Josh has also taken it upon himself to secure the items for the silent auction you will see at the induction to help raise additional funds for the HOF.
