Brothers Osborne‘s TJ and John Osborne are the new 2021 Ambassadors for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville’s Music Row Build, scheduled for Oct. 2-3.
To show their support for Habitat for Humanity and affordable homeownership opportunities in Nashville, TJ and John will be out on the build site prior to the Music Row Build swinging hammers and helping volunteers construct Habitat’s first townhome community, Sherwood Commons, home to 26 future Habitat homeowners.
Nashville was recently listed as one of five cities on the verge of a housing crisis by 24/7 Wall Street, with more than 70 percent of Nashvillians needing affordable or workforce housing.
“With climbing housing prices, many Nashvillians are priced out of the real estate market. Nashville is home to many creative and diverse communities, and we need to make sure everyone who calls Nashville home, has a home,” says TJ.
“We are excited to help with the Music Row Build this year,” says John. “We were privileged enough to grow up in a stable home in Deale Maryland, where we would have jam sessions with family and friends. We recognize the importance of this and want to do our part to lend a hand with this project.”
Music Row Build began in 2003 and helped eight local families purchase affordable homes before it ended in 2012. Habitat’s Music Row build reignited in 2020 when Mark Brown, senior vice president and GM of Round Hill Music, decided he wanted to do more to help hardworking Nashvillians have equal opportunities to live in the city in which they work. Brown loved the hands-on approach the Habitat program offered for building better futures and working with and getting to know future homeowners.
“Our fundraising goal this year is $60,000. We are incredibly grateful for TJ and John’s help getting the word out about Music Row Build and the need for more affordable homeownership opportunities in Nashville,” says Brown.
WME, a two-year Habitat home sponsor, is joining this year’s Music Row Build. Habitat Board Member and WME Partner and Co-Head Jay Williams says, “A Habitat home build is one of my favorite Nashville things to do. It is so gratifying to get out on the build site and hammer nails and saw 2x4s with the future homeowners. It is a great team building experience as well. The staff looks forward to it every year.”
