Kellie has been dealing with a sinus infection for several days while Randy, the former lead vocalist for Alabama, explained that "unforeseen circumstances" prevented him from attending. The show included John Rich of Big & Rich, Dierks Bentley and Gretchen Wilson, along with rock bands Tesla and Twisted Sister, and was taped for an upcoming TV special, VH–1 Classic Presents: Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later. The special will air Easter Sunday, March 23, on VH–1 and VH–1 Classic. Randy expressed his disappointment at being unable to attend, noting that, "I've been looking forward to this benefit for quite some time. But I know this amazing lineup of artists will raise a lot of money for the victims of the Station Nightclub fire." The fire at the West Warwick, R.I., music club killed more than 100 people and injured more than 200 the night of Feb. 20, 2003.
