Nashville’s music community continues to come together to help the greater Nashville area heal following the devastating tornadoes that heavily damaged parts of the area earlier this week.
Several top Nashville artists will perform at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works on Monday, March 9, beginning at 7:30 p.m., as part of the benefit concert To Nashville, With Love. Ashley McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Brothers Osborne, Kendell Marvel, Dan Auerbach, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Old Crow Medicine Show, Sheryl Crow, Soccer Mommy and Yola will all be performing.
The Basement East co-owner Mike Grimes will be a featured speaker at the event; The Basement East was destroyed during the recent tornadoes that hit East Nashville.
“We have seen the resilience of Nashville before but nothing like the display of humanity being put forth currently,” Grimes said in a statement. “That sweat equity combined with our incredible friends’ generous offers of their gift of music will galvanize our city, making it stronger than ever before. Please join us Monday friends for an event that will help and heal. We Will Rise.”
Every dollar from ticket sales, and donations for the event, will benefit the To Nashville, With Love Fund, which was created by several music industry professionals to raise money to help the Nashville community. The fund will allocate all money raised to disaster relief and to mental health organizations. WRLT/Lightning 100 will broadcast the event via its website lightning100.com and via 100.1 FM.
Tickets on sale now, priced at $75. To purchase tickets, to make a donation and for more information, please visit tonashvillewithlove.org.
Isbell stated, “Amanda [Shires] and I are proud to call Nashville our home, and we’re proud of the Nashville community’s ability to come together in a time of crisis. We’re lucky that our home and our loved ones are safe, but we know that isn’t the case for many Nashvillians. I’m happy to do what I can to help the city recover.”
Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, an organization benefiting from the fund, stated, “We know when disasters strike, there are no quick fixes. We are grateful to our partners from the entertainment industry for their tireless work in making these special events a reality. Thanks to these efforts through the work of nonprofits on the ground helping victims address their needs, we will be able to better respond to the damage caused by these disastrous storms.”
