The Onsite Foundation’s annual INSPIRE event will honor Live Nation’s President of Country Touring Brian O’Connell and his Nashville team with the 2018 Inspiration Award. The INSPIRE event will take place Oct. 23 at Marathon Music Works in Nashville.
The evening will recognize O’Connell’s ongoing commitment to helping the victims and families of the Oct. 1 tragedy in Las Vegas. The Onsite Foundation has created a 100% scholarship, trauma and grief intensive program specifically for those who lost loved ones. Proceeds from INSPIRE will benefit this directly.

“The Onsite Foundation more than doubled its impact last year thanks to the success of this event,” said Miles Adcox, CEO of The Onsite Foundation. “With this momentum, a new important idea was born to help change the way we have historically responded to mass tragedies in our country. We are circling back over a year after the Route 91 Harvest Festival to offer Onsite’s world class proven grief and trauma intensives for free to all who lost a loved one that day. The country music industry is known for doing things differently and this will be no exception. I’ve spent a lot of time with Brian O’ Connell since October 1st of last year and I’ve never seen someone in his position care so much about helping the fans and music community recover and heal. He and his team have spent countless hours in support of these efforts. He was the last to want this honor but the first to raise his hand when he heard how the proceeds would help the families.”
“The work that The Onsite Foundation does is so important,” said O’Connell. “I’m a huge advocate of seeking help when you need it, and so our philosophies are very much in line with each other. I’m so inspired by my team for their strength this past year and thankful to be a part of raising more funds for a shared cause so close to us all.”
