Jason Isbell, Sheryl Crow, Hayley Williams, and several other acts are set to perform at a benefit concert for the LGBTQ+ community to be held at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on March 20.
Hozier, Brittany Howard, Brothers Osborne, Amanda Shires, Julien Baker, Joy Oladokun, Yola, Jake Wesley Rogers, Mya Byrne, and the Rainbow Coalition Band, are among the others set to perform at the “Love Rising Tennessee” benefit concert, which is being organized by Isbell and Allison Russell.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit Tennessee Equality Project, Inclusion Tennessee, OutMemphis, and the Tennessee Pride Chamber.
“As a queer, intersectional artist and mother, raising my child in Nashville, it’s important to me to support these wonderful Tennessee LGBTQIA+ advocacy organizations, working so hard to build bridges, reduce harm and promote equality for all Tennesseans,” said Russell.
She added, “LGBTQIA+ contributions and creativity are foundational to every genre of modern song and arts performance. I think it speaks volumes that so many in our community are feeling the same call to support, celebrate and uplift!”
“Senate Bill 3 and House Bill 9 are clearly targeted attacks on Tennesseans who haven’t done anything wrong,” added Isbell. “These bills add up to an attempt to eradicate a valuable part of our community and force good people to live in fear. We can’t in good conscience just stand by and let that happen.”
