Miley Cyrus knows how to throw a party (in the USA, that is) and she has a big one planned on Friday, June 25.

Cyrus is bringing Pride, special guests and a "lot of wardrobe changes" to Nashville's Ryman Auditorium for her special, Miley Cyrus Present Stand By You, which will air on NBC's streaming platform Peacock.

The filmed concert, held in support of the LGBTQ+ community, promises lots of performances from major country artists and backstage access. "I'm filling up the legendary Ryman Auditorium to celebrate Pride through the power of music", Cyrus said in a new teaser trailer. In the clip, she sings The Pretenders' hit 'I'll Stand By You'. Watch below.

The special guest line-up is stacked: Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Mickey Guyton and Orville Peck are all set to appear.

Cyrus is no stranger to supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Her non-profit, the Happy Hippie Foundation, mobilizes young people to help LGBTQ+ youth, homeless youth and other vulnerable populations.

Earlier this year, T.J. Osborne came out as gay in an interview with TIME Magazine, making him the only openly gay artist signed to a major country label. “I realize that it is a big part of who I am: the way I think, the way I act, the way I perform”. he said at the time. “God, think of all the times that we talk about love, and write about love. It’s the biggest thing we ever get to feel. And I’ve kept the veil on”.

Brothers Osborne are also slated to perform at Ty Herndon's Concert for Love and Acceptance on June 30. Later this summer, they'll hit the road for they're We're Not for Everyone tour and finally play songs off their 2020 album Skeletons, which they released but haven't officially toured.

Morris, meanwhile, took home two big wins from the ACM Awards in April, including Female Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for her single 'The Bones', which she co-wrote with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz.

Miley Cyrus Presents: Stand By You is premiering June 25th on Peacock.
