The Neal Agency and Red Light Management will serve as Music Row anchor sponsors for Habitat for Humanity’s 2023 Music Row Build this fall. Upcoming build days will take place on Oct. 19-20 at Village by the Creek in North Nashville. Music Row sponsors will experience hope in action as they participate in building future MRB homeowner Michelle Steele’s Habitat home.
“The Neal Agency is proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity Nashville and Red Light Management on the 2023 Music Row Build. As a native Nashvillian, it is integral to myself and the company to give back to the local community and create lasting positive change beyond the entertainment industry. Through this collaboration we are able make a tangible impact in our community by building hope and homes for families such as Michelle’s. The entire TNA team will be out in full force and we are excited to roll up our sleeves and get to work!” says TNA’s Austin Neal.
“Red Light Management is proud to be partnering with The Neal Agency on this year’s Music Row Build. Habitat for Humanity is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts and it is our privilege to serve alongside the many wonderful volunteers. We look forward to investing in the future of the Steele family and getting them one step closer to having a place they can call home,” says Red Light’s Tom Lord.
The Morrell Property Collective is funding the Oct. 20 build day and BMI is providing the build volunteers for future Habitat homeowner Michelle Steele, who is the mother of a 3-year-old daughter. She will be first in her immediate family to own a home and desires a permanent address for her daughter to attend school until she graduates.
According to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, 40% of Metro children in Nashville do not complete the school year in the same school they started. Parents move frequently looking for safe and affordable housing. More than 7o% of Nashvillians are paying more than 30% of their income on housing.
The Music Row Build’s mission is for the music community to come together to do more for affordable housing in Nashville through education, advocacy and hope in action. Music veterans Renee Bell and Ree Guyer started Habitat’s Music Row Build in 2003, building nine homes before it ended in 2012. Mark Brown reignited the build in 2020 and Penny Gattis became the chair in 2022.
“It’s great to be back at the Habitat build site this fall with The Neal Agency and Red Light Management. I have seen firsthand how the build site brings people together and the impact it has on those who give and those who receive,” says Gattis. “The Morrell Property Collective is back for the third straight year, and we are always glad to see them!”
