mountain-tough

The country and roots community continues to rally behind the people of east Tennessee’s Sevier County affected by recent wildfires that displaced some 1,300 families and caused significant damage in the town of Gatlinburg. On Saturday, 12-17, Music City Roots, Yee-Haw Brewing Co., and Ole Smoky Moonshine are presenting a benefit for the fire victims called Mountain Tough that will include performances by Jim Lauderdale, Mo Pitney, The Secret Sisters, Chelle Rose, Sam Bush, Chuck Mead, Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley, and headliners the Zac Brown Band.

The benefit will be broadcasting from downtown Gatlinburg via WMOT / Roots Radio, 89.5 FM in middle Tennessee, as well as other local radio stations in the area, including WIVK, Knoxville’s WDVX, Nashville public radio station WPLN, University of Tennessee stations KUTK and WUOT and Chattanooga’s WUTC. NPR’s World Café will also stream the event that is being produced and served by Music City Roots of Nashville. The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. Eastern, and run all the way until nearly 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

Donations benefit the Sevier County Community Fund.
