Hit songwriters including Jeffrey Steele, Kent Blazy, Clint Daniels and Jesse Lee have joined the lineup for a concert to benefit Nashville singer-songwriter Jesse Labelle, who survived a Valentine’s Day crash while headed to a performance at University of Penn State Worthington Scranton. Labelle hit a patch of black ice, sending his care into a tailspin across four lanes of traffic, where it then landed on the side of the road and caught fire.
Labelle escaped the vehicle by kicking the door open but lost his touring van, instruments, sound equipment, merchandise and countless personal items in the accident. Now his friends and fellow songwriters are pulling together to help him raise funds to replace all the things necessary to get him back on the road.
The benefit concert will take place at Nashville’s Listening Room Cafe on Thursday, March 29. The show begins at 6 p.m., and admission is $10.
The full lineup includes Steele, Blazy, Daniels, Phil Barton, Lee, Forest Glen, Austin Burke, Sammy Arriaga, Michael Whitworth, Jaden Michaels, John Gurney, Ava Suppelsa and Lala.
Labelle is a singer/songwriter originally from Canada who has received gold records in his native country. Since moving to America, Labelle has won numerous songwriting competitions including the 2018 Music City Songstar contest for his upcoming single “Two Hearts And A Diamond.” He has opened for the likes of Keith Urban and Brad Paisley and will make his debut appearance at this year’s CMA Music Festival.
