Josh Turner Concert To Support John Hiatt Fund

By: Laura Hostelley

On Oct. 15, MCA Nashville’s Josh Turner and Country duo Striking Matches will take the stage at the historic Ryman Auditorium for the 17th annual Concert for Cumberland Heights. This fundraiser supports the private, nonprofit alcohol and drug addiction center Cumberland Heights’ John Hiatt Fund for adolescent and young adult treatment.

Since Hiatt began the benefit in 1996, nearly $2 million has been raised to support adolescents and young adults, ages 14-24 and their families through the substance abuse recovery process.

“I’m looking forward to playing for Cumberland Heights to help them raise money so they can continue the great work that they do,” said Turner. “Alcohol and drug abuse is damaging to the person experiencing it but it’s also detrimental to their family and friends.”

An online auction will take place July 18-Aug. 1 featuring specialty tickets for the show and an autographed copy of Turner’s latest book Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood.

Tickets will go on sale on July 18 at For sponsorship or ticket information contact Merrill Derrick at 615-432-3226 or email [email protected].

All proceeds from the concert go directly to the John Hiatt Fund.
