Eric Church and Marty Stuart are among the stars showing their respect for a singing legend.  The country singers are just a few of the first confirmed artists for the tribute concert "I'll Take You There - Celebrating 75 Years of Mavis Staples." 

The lineup also features Gregg Allman, Michael McDonald, and Aaron Neville, as well as Grace Potter, Ryan Bingham, and others.  

Mavis, who turned 75 in July, will also perform while the lineup is expected to grow.  "I'll Take You There" is set for Chicago's Auditorium Theater on November 19th.  Tickets go on sale September 29th. 

Producer Keith Wortman is organizing the special show, which will be filmed and recorded for a future release.  He was also behind the all-star tribute event for Gregg Allman, which was staged earlier this year, as well as the concert salute to Lynyrd Skynyrd, which will take place in Atlanta a week before the Mavis Staples show.
