Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Locash, Randy Houser & More to Perform at Ryman’s Hurricane Benefit Concert

Nash Daily News - Wed, 09/11/2019 - 11:10

The country music community is coming together to assist those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

The SIP Hope 4 Hope Town benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Sept. 16 will feature performances by Dierks Bentley, Jamey Johnson, Locash, Darius Rucker, Randy Houser, Kristian Bush, Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish, Devin Dawson, James Otto, Chris Gelbuda, Wyatt Durette, Channing Wilson, Tyler Reeve, Django Walker and more.

The fundraising event is the brainchild of songwriter Patrick Davis, who founded the Songwriters in Paradise music festival in 2013 in Hope Town on the Abaco Island in the Bahamas, one of the areas recently devastated by Hurricane Dorian.

An online auction will also coincide with the concert. Additionally, Patrick created a GoFundMe campaign, which has already raised more than $398,000, to assist those in need in the Bahamas.

Tickets for the SIP Hope 4 Hope Town benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium are on sale now.

Blake Shelton Is on a Mission to Get Craig Morgan’s New Song, “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” to No. 1

Nash Daily News - Wed, 09/11/2019 - 10:04

Blake Shelton is on a mission.

Country music’s most powerful social media influencer has been imploring his 20.6 million Twitter followers to help Craig Morgan’s touching new song, “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” reach No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart.

And it’s working. From Sept. 9—the date of Blake’s first tweet referencing the tune—to Sept. 11, the song has moved from No. 75 on the iTunes Country chart to No. 4.

Blake has mentioned Craig’s song in more than 10 tweets.

The new tune, which Craig penned and produced, honors his late son, Jerry Greer, who passed away after a boating accident in July 2016 at the age of 19.

“Come on everybody this song deserves to be number 1 at least on iTunes,” said Blake via Twitter on Sept. 9. “Tweet your friends, tag the song. All people need to do is hear it once. They will want to own it. This song deserves to be recognized.@cmorganmusic
