The Nashville Sessions concert features performances and interviews with multi-platinum selling, recording artist-songwriter and ACM New Male Artist of the Year award winner Jimmie Allen, ACM New Female Artist of the Year award-winning singer-songwriter Lauren Alaina, and next generation country artist Jillian Jacqueline. In addition to special performances, the artists will also talk about the inspiring stories behind their music in sit-down interviews. This installment of The Nashville Sessions will also feature a behind-the-scenes tour of the new Gibson Garage, with Gibson’s President and CEO, James “JC” Curleigh.
“We are so grateful for Gibson’s ongoing support,” shares Meredith Seacrest, executive director & COO for the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. “So many of the patients and families our partner hospitals serve have benefited from guitar donations and specialty headphone donations over the years. We’re thrilled they will now get to experience the heartbeat of Gibson, by virtually touring the Gibson Garage and watching one-of-a-kind performances.”
“Music has always found a way to inspire, and now we are set to take this to another level with the Nashville Sessions,” says Curleigh. “Our partnership with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation will help bring virtual concerts to kids in challenging situations and hopefully brighten their day.”
