Concert in Nashville tonight to benefit tornado victims

The United Way of Sumner County, TN is sponsoring a star-studded benefit show tonight in Hendersonville for the sake of local residents who were victims of the recent tornados which ravaged sections of central TN. The show will have no admission fee, but donations will be accepted to go directly to United Way’s disaster relief efforts.

A number of Nashville country and bluegrass artists have donated their time to make this show possible, including Ricky Skaggs, Lorrie Morgan, the Oak Ridge Boys, T.G, Sheppard, The Del McCoury Band, The Whites, Gary Allan, Connie Smith, Kelly Lang, Tommy Cash and Ralph Emery. The concert, billed as A Night Of Healing, will be held at the Hendersonville High School football stadium at 7:00 p.m. (CDT) on Monday, May 1.

The Hendersonville Star News ran a feature about the show in their Friday edition which describes the genesis of the concert, and includes some comments from the folks involved.

United Way of Sumner County can also accept donations online if anyone would like to join the musicians and entertainers who are lending support to their fellow Nashville-area residents in need.
