East Tennesseans had a chance to hear some great music for an even better cause Friday Night at Knoxville Academy of Medicine's third annual Boot Scootin' Ball.

All the money raised from the event goes to Knoxville Area Project Access, or KAPA. It's a local program to provide healthcare for low income and uninsured patients in Knox County.

More than 300 people attended the event.

"I think everybody is excited about seeing Montgomery Gentry tonight," said Kim Weaver with the Knoxville Academy of Medicine. "We're just thrilled that thy're here with us, and they're doing their full show and we've got the lights and the smog and the everything so it's gonna be a great, a great party."

KAPA has donated about $135 million worth of medical services to more than 18,000 Tennesseans since it was created in 2006.
