Lee Ann Womack To Perform At Country Benefit For MusiCares In Nashville
On April 24 supporters of MusiCares' essential services for music people in need can share the love at an acoustic fundraiser to be held in Nashville, Tenn., at AJ's Good Time Bar with country artists Lee Ann Womack, the Randy Rogers Band and Jackie Lee.
These three artists will each play an acoustic set at the iconic bar to benefit the programs and services of MusiCares, which range from direct financial assistance, medical services, as well as addiction recovery resources such as the MusiCares Safe Harbor Room at festivals and the Sober Touring Network database of volunteers ready to take out-of-town music people to local meetings.
For the musicians on the evening's bill, it's clear to them the traditional messages exalted in classic country are the perfect pairing for the lifesaving and hope-giving work of MusiCares.
"Country music to me was always music that spoke to the common man, and in earlier times, people who were going through hard times and troubles," Womack told The New York Times last year.
"We've stuck to writing songs that are about real life, about breakups or divorces, falling in love or babies being born and … even death, the ups and downs of life. People can relate," Rogers said on his website. "That's what country music is supposed to be."
If you'd like to make a difference to music people in need while catching some of the best country has to offer, individual and VIP tickets to the one-of-a-kind evening are available at prices ranging from $250–$500 each. Order your tickets here.
