ReTune Nashville presented a $50,000 check to MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief today (6/8) at the MusiCares Nashville office. In one year, ReTune Nashville has activated 81 visual artists, received flood damaged gear from more than 25 donating musicians and companies, experienced the generosity of 18 music artists with accompanying musicians and crew, welcomed the support of roughly 80 sponsoring businesses and individuals, and completed two highly successful fundraising events to help uninsured musicians with their flood recovery efforts.

This donation supplements the initial $12,000 previously donated to MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief and the Nashville Musicians Association Flood Relief Fund in December 2010, bringing the total to $62,000 donated by ReTune Nashville for musicians’ flood relief.

MusiCares Executive Director Debbie Carroll commented on the donation and importance of monetary support,“Without the generosity and support of individuals and organizations such as ReTune, our work in providing support to the music industry after the devastating Nashville flood of 2010, would not be possible. ReTune’s donation will make a tremendous difference in the lives of many music people and their families who are still struggling from this disaster.”
