Several artists are joining forces for To Nashville, With Love, a charity benefit concert to raise money for the people of Nashville, whose homes and lives were devastated by the recent tornado.

Taking place on Monday, March 9, the show will feature performances from Ashley McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Brothers Osborne, Dan Auerbach, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Sheryl Crow, Soccer Mommy and Yola. Tickets, which are available for purchase now, are priced at $75 with every dollar raised benefitting the To Nashville, With Love Fund.

The fund was created by a group of music industry professionals and according to a press release, will “raise vital monies that are so greatly needed by the Middle Tennessee community after the devastating March 2020 tornadoes.” Money raised will be allocated to both disaster relief and mental health organizations.

“Amanda [Shires] and I are proud to call Nashville our home, and we’re proud of the Nashville community’s ability to come together in a time of crisis,” Isbell shared in a statement. “We’re lucky that our home and our loved ones are safe, but we know that isn’t the case for many Nashvillians. I’m happy to do what I can to help the city recover.”

“We know when disasters strike, there are no quick fixes. We are grateful to our partners from the entertainment industry for their tireless work in making these special events a reality,” Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, an organization benefiting from the fund, added. “Thanks to these efforts through the work of nonprofits on the ground helping victims address their needs, we will be able to better respond to the damage caused by these disastrous storms.”

WRLT-Lightning 100 is the event broadcast partner and the entire event will be broadcast via the website on & 100.1 FM.

Fans unable to attend the event can also make a donation to the To Nashville, With Love Fund.
