Brittney Spencer has been named Artist Advocate for Habitat for Humanity’s Music Row Build, set for May 13 at Village by the Creek in North Nashville.
As Artist Advocate, she and friends Abbey Cone, Caylee Hammack and Chris Housman will be performing at The Bluebird Cafe on April 13 at 9 p.m. to benefit the Habitat Music Row Build. In addition to the Bluebird performance, Spencer will be at the Habitat build site May 13 with volunteers, supporting this year’s future Habitat homeowner LaShawnda Bowman, who is the mother of four children.
“As a person who’s struggled with housing security and homelessness in the past, it means a lot for me to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Affordable housing can feel impossible to obtain in Nashville. Habitat’s homeownership program provides education and the ability to break down barriers on the build site working with the future homeowners and volunteers who come from all walks in life. Being able to have a home that is affordable means everything,” says Spencer.
“We are grateful Brittney is lending her incredible talent and voice to raise awareness for the affordable housing crisis in Nashville,” says Penny Gattis, Chair for Habitat for Humanity’s Music Row Build. “Our music community providing a pathway to homeownership for a Nashville family is invaluable and we thank Brittney for her advocacy.”
Additionally, UTA will serve as Music Row Build sponsor for 2023.
“I’m thrilled that UTA will join Brittney in actively bettering our community,” says Jeffrey Hasson, Music Agent & Co-Head of UTA Nashville. “Habitat is an amazing organization that positively effects change and this event gives us a chance to give back to those in need.”
Nashville is among the top five U.S. cities on the verge of a housing crisis. Over the last decade median household income has risen 15 percent and home prices have risen 167 percent. Habitat homes are not free and the sustainable homeownership program provides education, budget coaching and home maintenance classes empowering successful homeownership.
