Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlisle, Soccer Mommy and Sheryl Crow are among the local talents confirmed to perform at the benefit concert “To Nashville, With Love” on 9 March.
The concert will take place at Marathon Music Works and will support relief efforts following the devastating tornado which hit the city earlier this week, killing at least 24 people and destroying buildings and homes throughout Music City.
Also joining the stage will be Margo Price, Dan Auerback of the Black Keys, Yola, Ashley McBryde, Katie Pruitt, Brothers Osborne, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Old Crow Medicine Show, Kendell Marvel and Sadler Vaden. Remarks will be given by local legend Mike “Grimey” Grimes, who owns the beloved Grimey’s record store, and is a co-owner of the hallowed venue Basement East – which was sadly destroyed by the tornado.

All proceeds from the sold-out show will go directly to the newly established To Nashville, With Love foundation, which, according to their website, was created by: “A group of music industry professionals to help raise vital funds after the devastating March 2020 tornadoes that struck Middle Tennessee. Funds raised will be dispersed between organisations helping with disaster relief and mental health after tragedy.”
All donations to the fund will be administered by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
In a statement on the Nashville, With Love website, Jason Isbell wrote, “Amanda [Shires] and I are proud to call Nashville our home, and we’re proud of the Nashville community’s ability to come together in a time of crisis. We’re lucky that our home and our loved ones are safe, but we know that isn’t the case for many Nashvillians. I’m happy to do what I can to help the city recover.”
Donations can be made on the foundation’s website. Additionally, the concert will be broadcast live on local independent radio station Lightning 100 (WRLT 100.1FM).
