Music city is using music to help the recover from the devastating bomb that exploded on Christmas Day 2020 in the 2nd Ave area of downtown Nashville.
This Friday, there will be a broadcast and livestream benefit event to raise money for the 2ndavestrong fund – which is to help restore the vitally important historic district of 2nd Avenue. Named 2ndAveStrong, this fund was created in response to damage resulting from the Christmas Day bombing.
Schedule to appear at the benefit are Ashley McBryde, Old Dominion, Lindsay Ell, Scotty McCreery, LOCASH, Lee Brice, Phil Vassar, and more with the event being hosted by Natalie Stovall.
Talking about being involved with the 2nd Ave Strong Benefit Scotty McCreery says, “Nashville has been my second home for the last ten years. I was stunned when I saw the news of the bombing on Christmas Day. I’ve walked that street, eaten at those restaurants and performed at the Wildhorse Saloon several times. We all have – it’s such an important and fun part of Nashville. As soon as I was asked to participate, I said yes. Nashville is one of those great cities where everyone pulls together, and I’m proud to join with so many great artists to help do our share with the 2nd Avenue Strong event. Ashley McBryde, Old Dominion, Lee Brice, Breland, Shenandoah, Lindsay Ell, Tyler Rich, Sixwire and more. I’m proud to be part of that line-up. I hope folks will tune in and donate.”
For Nashville area residents, the benefit will air this Friday, March 26th 2021, from 7 pm to 9pm (Central Time) on the local NewsChannel 5 — for everyone else you can watch it 2ndAveStrong.org — you can also donate there as well.
