It's time to play a "Whiskey Lullaby" for the animals, y'all.

This past year amid the coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on zoos and aquariums, as they've continued to care for, feed, and provide medical attention for all of their animals despite losing revenue from guests due to extended closures for visitors. To help zoos and aquariums during their time of need, country music artists are stepping up with AZA — the Association of Zoos and Aquariums for the All Together For Animals virtual benefit concert on Wednesday, March 31, at 8 p.m. ET, which will support 240 member zoos and aquariums of the AZA around the world. The event will feature performances from Brad Paisley, Old Dominion, Ashley McBryde, Wynonna Judd, and others.

Watch Old Dominion share the announcement via YouTube below. Accompanying their video, a statement read:

COVID-19 has had a dire impact on AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums. Due to the pandemic, members have lost nearly a year of revenue. But our facilities still need to feed, care, and provide medical attention for the precious animals – every single day! So, we are reaching out to our friends for support with an exciting offer!

To help raise immediate funds, we have teamed up with today’s top country artists to produce an incredible, virtual concert fundraising event – exclusively for our zoo and aquarium supporters!

Your ticket purchase will get you exclusive access to the “All Together for Animals” concert. You will see performances by Brad Paisley, Old Dominion, Ashley McBryde, Wynonna Judd, Riley Green, Jessie James Decker, Shy Carter, and others!

If you'd like to buy a ticket, you can do so through your nearest, AZA-accredited facility by reaching out to them for a link to purchase a local ticket — find members here — or support AZA with a $30 livestream ticket here.

We're expecting lots of good music come March 31, and we're sure hoping for some cute animal cameos, too. Be sure to tell all your zoo-and-aquarium loving friends to pick up a ticket.
