Good music x good causes – those are things we love.
Country fans heading to Nashville in June for the CMT Music Awards and CMA Music Fest will have the chance to join chart-topping country artist Rodney Atkins for his annual "Music City Gives Back" concert in downtown Nashville on Tuesday, June 3.
Now in its fourth year, the show will feature an all-star lineup of Atkins' friends including Lee Brice, Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch, Josh Thompson and more and will benefit Nashville's W.O. Smith Music School. The event will kick off at 6 PM CT at 1st Avenue and Broadway and is free to the public.
All. Good. Things.
"I am so excited to be part of this event for the fourth year in a row and to have such a great group of artists give their time and talent to help out," said Atkins. "I've always believed that music is a great healer and it's important to me as an artist to use that platform to give back."
Founded in 1984, W.O. Smith Music School provides music instruction to children from low-income families for the nominal cost of 50 cents per lesson. An all-volunteer teaching artist faculty of 220 gives music lessons to more than 650 students annually. Instruments and all learning materials are loaned to the students at no additional expense.
In other Atkins news, he is currently working on his fifth studio album for Curb Records and performing headlining dates across the country.
Anyone plan to do any charity deeds this summer, even if it includes attending a show such as this?
