Jason Isbell, Devon Gilfillian and more are set to perform at “Together In Action,” a concert benefiting gun violence prevention efforts in Tennessee, on Aug. 15 at City Winery Nashville.
Chris Housman, Julie Williams, Autumn Nicholas and The Kentucky Gentlemen will also perform at the benefit, which is presented by Country Any Way and eQuality events and will aid organizations working to raise awareness about gun violence in the Volunteer State.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 19. Moms Demand Action will be on site at the concert providing more information on how to get involved in the movement to end gun violence, and tickets can be purchased here.
“In my efforts to change the landscape of country music, I’m realizing that a huge part of that is taking a close look at where we live and being vocal about the changes we’d like to see,” says Holly G, creator of Country Any Way and event organizer. “Since becoming a resident in Tennessee, I’ve incorporated into my mission making sure that marginalized voices and the voices of people who want Tennessee to be an inclusive and safe space are heard. Music gives us such a beautiful platform for expression and creating community. I’m so excited that myself, eQuality events, and City Winery Nashville were able to pull together such an amazing group of artists to send a clear message that Tennesseans deserve a safe place to live.”
The Nashville community was shaken earlier this year when a shooter brutally took the lives of three adults and three children at The Covenant School. According to Everytown For Gun Safety, Tennessee has the 12th highest rate of gun deaths in the country, with 1,385 people killed by guns in an average year. A recent report suggests several key policies, including secure firearm storage laws and extreme risk laws as well as requiring background checks on all gun sales can help reduce gun violence in the U.S.
