McGraw announced early last week that he was headlining the anti-gun concert and a firestorm of criticism ensued.

Now one performer has decided he’s out.

Billy Currington announced on his Facebook page that he would no longer be participating in the concert, but would instead send his own donation.

“I’ve never been one to take on controversial issues – I’m a singer. I do feel strongly about honoring and supporting the Sandy Hook community and will be making a donation to a local organization. I appreciate people’s freedom and passion for whatever cause they want to support, however, I am choosing to step aside from this fundraiser and will focus instead on the rest of the tour dates as I look forward to being on the road with Tim and Chase and having a blast with all of the fans.

The concert will take place at Xfinity Theater in Hartford, Connecticut on July 17
