Rodney Crowell, Jon Vezner To Lead Second “Heal The Music Day”

Rodney Crowell and Jon Vezner are joining forces with Music Health Alliance to help Heal The Music. The second “Heal The Music Day” will take place on Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 as a day of nationwide music industry fundraising and awareness to support the critical and life-saving free services provided by Music Health Alliance.

“In the world of the working musician, good health is something most of us take for granted…that is, until something goes wrong,” said Crowell. “When and if it does, there is no greater patient advocacy group than our very own Music Health Alliance. MHA has provided support to people across 38 states and so we want to carry the message beyond Nashville and are asking everyone in the music community to pledge a small percentage of their single day earnings on ‘Heal The Music Day’ to MHA so they can continue their critical work for many years to come.”

Since its launch in 2013, Nashville-based nonprofit Music Health Alliance has served more than 8,400 members of the music community nationwide, and saved more than $33 million in healthcare costs including insurance premium savings, medical bill reductions and discounted medications. According to MHA stats, 428 families have been spared bankruptcy due to a medical crisis, and eight patients have been provided with access to heart, lung, kidney, or liver transplants. Additionally, MHA has facilitated access to more than 200 trauma counseling sessions for Las Vegas shooting survivors and their families.

To participate in “Heal The Music Day,” members of the music community — including artists, songwriters, producers, publishers, publicists, promoters, business managers, record label executives, booking agents, attorneys, venues, stylists and more — can pledge a percentage of their single day earnings to support the lifesaving services provided by Music Health Alliance.
