Three country music artists managed to step out of the spotlight this CCMA weekend in Saskatoon to help make a difference.
The Canadian Country Music Awards have brought Chad Brownlee, Ryain Laird, and Tenille in town, but their focus for one afternoon was on helping the Saskatoon food bank.
All three took part in filling and assembling food baskets for people living in poverty or hunger.
Tennile, already a Slaight Music Humanitarian Award winner, says it's the least she could do.
She says they've been put in a position where they are in the spotlight, and if this action inspires someone else to help out in similar fashion, it's all worthwhile.
All three said they were inspired to help out because of the upcoming Food Basket Challenge, where for a whole week; more than twenty Saskatoon residents will eat only what people living in poverty or hunger eat.
All of the food baskets that the artists filled are given to families in need.
