Lindsay Ell, Phil Vassar, Phillip Phillips, Breland, Derek St. Holmes, Tyler Rich and Shenandoah with special guest Gyth Rigdon are among the artists added to the upcoming 2nd Ave Strong virtual concert to benefit the restoration and preservation of the historic district of downtown Nashville. They join previously announced artists Ashley McBryde, Lee Brice, Old Dominion and Scotty McCreery for the March 26 event at the Wildhorse Saloon.
Hosted by Natalie Stovall of Runaway June, the benefit will include highlights like Shenandoah with Rigdon performing “I Want To Be Loved Like That,” which Gyth performed on The Voice.
The evening aims to raise $2 million towards the $10 million overall goal to support the 2nd Avenue district which was severely damaged by last year’s Christmas Day bombing. The show will be broadcast on March 26 from 7 – 9 PM on NewsChannel 5 and will be live streamed through the Grand Ole Opry YouTube and 2ndavestrong.org.
“We have been humbled by the outpouring of support from the community,” said Tim Walker, executive director of Metro Historical Commission. “That the music industry would come together to help support the efforts to restore and preserve 2nd Avenue will show the world what Nashville is all about.”
