Benefit show for S Lousiana flood victims. Three years ago I packed up a box trailer, a couple of suitcases, and a 1999 Chevy pickup truck with 300,000 miles on it, and left Louisiana for Nashville, Tennessee to chase this dream down every blue highway I could find. Since then, I’ve put in 150,000 miles across 18 states to play songs that mean the world to me for those of you that just wanted to listen. A lot of things change when you leave home, but one thing that’s always been consistent is you guys…you’ve always been the foot on the pedal, so to speak. So, thank you. I wouldn’t still be here in a city 750 miles away from home if it weren’t for y'all.
About a year ago, I started playing a weekly writer’s round with a group of rounders, tunesmiths, and lyric-junkies that just wanted to focus on the substance, sans than the pageantry. Revival 615 is a lot of things, but, to me, it’s an outlet for words and music that mean something a little more valuable than I probably deserve to afford. I’m humbled to be considered a part of it.
This coming Tuesday (8/30), we’re, along with Team Cocktail and Tin Roof Nashville, are hosting a benefit round to aid in the flood recovery efforts of my home state. 100% of donations, merchandise profits, and bar sales will be going to Rotary International 6200 Chapter, where every cent will be distributed to the areas in need. The lineup is stacked with Louisiana singer/songwriters like myself and Lainey Wilson, David Borné, Benjy Davis, Monty Russell, Kevin Gordon, Jason Martin, and many more. If you’re in Nashville, please come by. It’d mean a ton to everyone here. If not, and you’d still like to help, check out the links below.
If you can’t afford to purchase a shirt and/or make a donation, please share this around, that helps more than you know.
