Following Nashville Mayor Megan Barry’s official proclamation declaring October 20th as “Heal The Music Day,” a number of events are on tap to support the initiative. “Heal The Music Day” is an effort to raise awareness and support for the more than 56,000 people who make a living in the music industry, 76% of whom are self-employed or part of small business without access to group health benefits – including songwriters, producers, audio engineers, musicians, recording artists, publishers and more.

Funds raised during “Heal The Music Day” support the non-profit’s FREE services, advocacy, education and preventative care initiatives including upcoming events open to the music community:
