Jason Isbell and Devon Gilfillian will join a slew of talented singer-songwriters in Nashville to play at a gun violence prevention benefit concert.
Chris Housman, Julie Williams, Autumn Nicholas, and The Kentucky Gentlemen are the other artists on the Together In Action lineup.
The August 15 event at City Winery in Nashville, presented by Country Any Way and eQuality events, will raise funds to support efforts against gun violence in the state of Tennessee.
Six people, including three children, were killed in a mass shooting at The Covenant School, a private school in Nashville, in March.
Tennessee has the tenth-highest rate of deaths caused by gun shots.
“In my efforts to change the landscape of country music, I’m realizing that a huge part of that is taking a close look at where we live and being vocal about the changes we’d like to see,” said Holly G, creator of Country Any Way and event organizer.
Tickets for the event on sale now. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to “organizations working to raise awareness about gun violence in Tennessee.”
