Music Health Alliance Celebrates Five Years, New Location

Pictured (L-R): MHA Board President Chris Wiatr, Andrea Davidson, Tatum Hauck Allsep, Rodney Crowell, Office of the Mayor & Executive Director of the Music City Music Council Justine Avila, songwriter/musician Rory Feek, and Board Member Jay Williams at the first annual “Heal The Music Day.”

More than 8,000 members of our nation’s music community have received over $30 million in lifesaving health care and insurance premium savings thanks to the dedication of Music Health Alliance (MHA)—all in the organization’s first five years of service.

In 2017 alone, MHA raised over $789,759.47. The first annual “Heal The Music Day,” held on Oct. 20, raised close to $250,000 of that amount thanks to a coalition of 70-plus performing artists who pledged 5 percent of their net earnings for one day, and the generous donations given by the music business community.

As the Nashville-based non-profit begins its sixth year, the seven-person team at MHA continues to advocate on behalf of songwriters, producers, audio  engineers, musicians, recording artists, publishers and more across the country.

Effective March 12, MHA will move to a new office located at 2737 Larmon Avenue.
