Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Emmylou Harris, Amy Grant Among Early Supporters Of Heal The Music Day

Dierks Bentley, Chris and Morgane Stapleton, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Amy Grant, John Berry, Rosanne Cash and more have commited to Music Health Alliance’s upcoming Heal The Music Day Oct. 18, where members of the music community including artists, songwriters, producers, publishers, publicists, promoters, business managers, label execs, 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.

The day is held in an effort to raise awareness and support for the emergency and ongoing medical needs of our country’s creative community, 76% of whom are self-employed or part of a small business. The majority don’t have access to group health benefits and, in many instances, have limited and unpredictable resources. Music Health Alliance’s free services range from access to doctors and hospitals, medicine, health insurance and finding financial assistance during times of illness.

“Our goal is to raise $500,000 this year to meet the continued increase in critical need,” said MHA Founder/CEO Tatum Allsep. “With a $10 donation, we are able to provide $300 in life-saving healthcare resources to Heal The Music, so there’s no doubt that Heal The Music Day is a great investment into the long-term health and wellness of the music industry as a whole.”

Since 2013, there have been more than 9,700 examples of members of the music community from coast-to-coast who have received free assistance from Music Health Alliance. The nine-person team has saved more than $43 Million in healthcare costs, including insurance premium savings, medical bill reductions and discounted medications in six years.
