Numerous musicians, including Dan Auerbach, Sheryl Crow, Soccer Mommy, Yola and more, will perform a charity concert tonight (9 March) to raise funds for those affected by the recent Tennessee tornadoes.
A benefit called To Nashville, With Love Fund has been set up by “a group of music industry professionals” in the wake of the storms. Every dollar raised by the charity concert tonight will go to this fund, which will then be allocated to both “disaster relief and mental health organisations”. The concert, to be held at Marathon Music Works, features a star-studded line-up. Find the full bill here:
The entire event will also be broadcasted live on 100.1 FM, lightning100.com and the Lightning 100 YouTube page. Watch it here:
Numerous gear brands, musicians and labels have also stepped up to offer support to those affected by the tornado. Brands like Gibson, Heritage and Harmony have extended help to musicians with damaged gear. Country star Kacey Musgraves was one of the first musicians to answer the call, selling her concert outfits via e-commerce platform Stage To Closet with proceeds going to tornado relief. Third Man Records, the Nashville-based record label founded by Jack White, also tweeted a message of “love and support”.
Sending love & support to our friends and neighbors who have been tragically effected by last night's tornado. TMR Nashville will be closed today. Let's take a moment to hug those you love and to help some folks in your community that you may not know… Love, Third Man Records
