Country rockers Rascal Flatts are turning their upcoming album release party into a fundraising event for a children’s hospital in Tennessee.

The trio’s ninth album, “Rewind,” is slated for release on May 13, and rather than celebrate with an industry bash, they are holding a benefit to bring in donations for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.

The group will play an acoustic set featuring tracks from the new record and guests will be able to sip on wine specially paired with every song, based on the tempo and lyrics.

All the money raised at the Avalon nightclub in Los Angeles will go towards the medical center.
