FRONT OF THE HOUSE

T.J. Martell Foundation – the music industry’s leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer – topped their fundraising record at the 2020 Nashville Honors Gala surpassing $1 MILLION. Hosted at the Omni Nashville Hotel, the 12th annual event was co-chaired by entertainment executive Steve Buchanan and Sweet Talk Publicity President/Owner Jensen Sussman. The landmark occasion celebrated a new class of local honorees, as they were acknowledged for their professional accomplishments, community spirit, and philanthropy, in front of an at-capacity crowd of supporters. Emceed by Charles Esten, the Music City game-changers included: GRAMMY award-winning contemporary Christian artist AMY GRANT – Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award; President of Morris Higham Management, CLINT HIGHAM – Joel A. Katz Music is Medicine Chairman’s Award; Associate Director for Clinical Research and Director of Phase I Research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, DR. JORDAN BERLIN – Medical Research Advancement Award; commercial real estate developer and CEO of Hall | Emery, PATRICK G. EMERY – Spirit of Nashville Award; and community builders LAURIE AND JIM SEABURY – Lifetime Humanitarian Award. With a dynamic list of presenters including Reba McEntire (Amy Grant), Joel A. Katz (Clint Higham), Dr. Dana Cardin & Dr. Laura Goff (Dr. Jordan Berlin), Tom Raney (Patrick G. Emery), and Dr. Wright Pinson (Laurie and Jim Seabury), the powerful affair featured special performances by Vince Gill (Amy Grant), Carly Pearce and Michael Ray (Clint Higham), Wade Hayes (Dr. Jordan Berlin), CeCe Winans (Patrick G. Emery), and Rascal Flatts (Laurie and Jim Seabury). Full of one-of-a-kind magical moments, Gill and Grant’s daughter Corrina joined her father on the keys during his touching performance of “When My Amy Prays,” and McEntire had the Gala guests laughing – and in tears – over her warmhearted introduction of Grant. Higham moved the room during the final award presentation as he dedicated his honor in loving memory of Nashville animal welfare advocate and philanthropist Phran Galante. Special guest Kenny Chesney also surprised Higham onstage to cap-off the inspirational night.

CRUSHIN IT

“At the end of 2019, I had this overwhelming desire to get out of town. So I headed West. Most of my time was spent in the car, just driving around New Mexico taking it all in. That’s where I got the idea to make a music video for my version of  Springsteen’s “Stolen Car.” I didn’t have a budget or any gear, but I decided that shouldn’t get in the way of the vision I had. I think the backdrop of the West in all its beauty – and its loneliness, at times – perfectly captures the emotion behind the song. With the exception of one unused scene from my Running Out Of Road short film, all of this video was shot on my iPhone. When you have a story you want to tell you find a way to tell it. Hopefully this video helps you to feel this song in a deeper way. It’s a no budget, no crew, no gear, no production representation of the essence of this song… at least through my car window.” – Lauren Jenkins

WITH A TWIST

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series® announced the addition of the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll® Nashville Music Festival presented by PNC Bank. The new music festival event moves the post-race concert to the race finish line at Nissan Stadium; creating an all-day music festival where race participants, their family and friends, and all spectators will be able to celebrate the day’s accomplishments with live music Saturday, April 25th. The St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Music Festival presented by PNC Bank will kick off with notable local talents such as Yankton, Chris Shrader, and Less Kerr. Erin Kinsey, a gifted songwriter, artist, and highly accomplished musician, will open the evening’s festivities. Country music superstars Michael Ray and Carly Pearce will co-headline the event and cap off the day’s events. 

ALL ACCESS

On the heels of a successful Country Cares Seminar, St. Jude has announced that moving forward, the seminar will take place in October – beginning October 8-11th 2020. Celebrating its 31st anniversary, Country Cares for St. Jude Kids is one of the most successful radio fundraising events in the country, with nearly 200 radio stations across the country participating to help support St. Jude and raising more than $850 million. Because of generous supporters, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
