Just days after Nashville and portions of Tennessee were affected by a deadly tornado, the first benefit relief concert has been announced. Hosted by country singer Mitchell Tenpenny at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row bar and restaurant in the Lower Broadway entertainment district, the concert is set for Monday, March 9th. The show includes performances by “Mitchell Tenpenny & Friends,” including Devin Dawson, Hardy, Jessie James Decker, and the Band Camino. “More surprises” are teased, and the show is already sold-out.
All proceeds from the evening will benefit charities affiliated with the organization Hands on Nashville. Music gets underway at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, and a raffle and auction of various music memorabilia is also being held.
At least 24 people, including two in East Nashville, were killed in Tennessee when a powerful storm spawned a tornado early Tuesday evening. Country singer Chris Young donated $50,000 to relief efforts, while Kacey Musgraves is earmarking all proceeds from an online clothing sale to Tennessee tornado relief.
