Nashville, TN – June 27, 2017 – Today, Music City Music Council Executive Director Justine Avila and Grammy® award winning artist Rodney Crowell joined Music Health Alliance Founder Tatum Allsep and board members Jay Williams (WME) and Kris Wiatr (Wiatr & Associates) at The Steps at WME to officially proclaim October 20 “Heal The Music Day” in Music City. The initiative, which will take place throughout the Nashville community, 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.

“It is my great pleasure to proclaim October 20th as ‘Heal The Music Day’ in recognition of Music Health Alliance’s work to connect some of the 56,000 Nashvillians in the music industry with doctors, medicine, health insurance and financial assistance during times of illness,” said Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. “So many of our artists, entertainers, songwriters, musicians, and crew are self-employed and go without access to high-quality health insurance. ‘Heal The Music Day’ is about giving back and showing we care about those who put the music in Music City.”

“Heal The Music Day” is the one day a year where everyone involved in the creative community can give back to a non-profit organization that gives to them each and every day throughout the year. Rodney Crowell is leading the charge to raise awareness and create an annual endowment benefitting Music Health Alliance, whose free services connect the music industry with access to doctors and hospitals, life-saving medicine, health insurance and financial assistance during times of illness.

As advocates, Music Health Alliance fights so those in our industry never have to feel alone in a health crisis. The six-person team at Music Health Alliance remove obstacles so patients can receive lifesaving care. Thanks to the direct efforts of Music Health Alliance, members of the music community across the country have gained access to lifesaving heart and liver transplants, medications to treat Parkinson’s, end of life care and many other necessary services. Since 2013, Music Health Alliance has saved over $16 million dollars in medical bills and reduced premiums and served over 5,600 people in the music community. Its services are free to any person who has worked in the music industry for two or more years, or who has credited contributions to 4 commercially released recordings or videos. Spouses, partners, and children of qualifying individuals may also receive access to the non-profit’s services from birth to end of life. Two of Music Health Alliance’s clients – Andrea Davidson and Rory Feek – joined Crowell onstage today to personally share their stories and the care they received during their own health crises.

“There is no other city in the world like Nashville where our namesake and greatest natural resource is music,” said Allsep. “’Heal The Music Day’ is a way to ensure that our city’s music professionals have access to life-saving healthcare not easily accessible by small business owners or the self-employed including our beloved Opry Members, session musicians and songwriters. With the uncertain landscape of healthcare today and impending healthcare legislation, the unique programs and services provided by Music Health Alliance are more important to our music community than ever before. No one in the music industry should ever have to choose between food and medicine. With the community’s support of ‘Heal The Music Day,’ together we can make sure that this is a choice that never has to be made.”

“‘Heal The Music Day’ as an opportunity to educate the Nashville music community on how not-for-profit Music Health Alliance helps our work force and their families find much needed help in times of health crisis and getting the care they need,” said Crowell. “The folks at MHA are a Godsend to this community and ‘Heal The Music Day’ creates an endowment that allows them to continue their critical work.”

Many in our creative community have already committed to “Heal The Music Day,” pledging a percentage of their revenues on October 20 to support their fellow musicians and peers in the industry in times of medical crisis. Early proponents include Chris & Morgane Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Earls of Leicester, Emmylou Harris, Gary Allan, Gene Watson, Glen Templeton, Jerry Douglas, John Prine, Keith Urban, Lee Brice, Marty Stuart, Mary Gauthier, Miranda Lambert, Peter Frampton, Rachael Hester, Rodney Crowell, Ronnie Dunn, Rosanne Cash, Sam Bush, Shawn Camp, T Bone Burnett, Vince Gill, Dualtone Records, Nashville Musicians Union, Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), New Frontier Touring, Warner Chappell Music and Wiatr & Associates.

Music Row Storytellers Event on 8/15/16

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 3.48.45 PM



August 15 Event to Benefit Music Health Alliance; Tickets Available Now

NASHVILLE (June 27, 2016) – Hazel Smith is a storyteller – she has thousands of them. That’s because she witnessed so many, played a role in so many…and ultimately chronicled and shared so many. Hazel is one of Music Row’s “Storytellers,” a journalist who has been a constant force and source in country music as long as many can remember. That is why she’s being honored as the initial subject of Music Row Storytellers.

Music Row Storytellers is a special event series designed to honor those that stand the test of time in telling the stories that make the music industry so fascinating – the journalists, interviewers, reporters, show hosts and others who chronicle and share the stories of Music Row and its musicmakers. The first annual event will be held on Monday, August 15 at Well Placed Smile (907 Gleaves St., Nashville, TN 37203). A 6:00pm cocktail reception will be followed by a 6:30pm program honoring Smith and benefiting Music Health Alliance. The evening will be filled with smiles, laughter and stories from Hazel and surprise guests who’ve been part of her career.

 Tickets are available for purchase at http://musicrowstorytellershs.eventbrite.com for $100.00. A limited amount of reserved seating is available for $110.00 each via the same link

Hazel Smith moved to Nashville in the late ’60s; the divorced mother of two would go on to be a songwriter, publicist, manager and – in what was probably her most durable role – journalist. Her ability to capture and translate a story are a tribute to her no-nonsense questioning, to the respect she’s earned from artists and industry leaders alike…and to her astute sense of observation, which was never more evident than when she coined the phrase “Outlaw Music” in the 1970s to describe the sound that she was hearing from then-clients Kinky Friedman, Tompall Glaser, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Hazel would go on to tell many more of Music Row’s stories as a writer for Country Music magazine, a radio reporter, and a regular columnist for CMT.com. She’s seen it all…and lived a lot of it, too.

Music Row Storytellers benefits Music Health Alliance, a non-profit organization providing the music industry with free services, including healthcare advocacy, resources and confidential guidance. Since its launch in 2013, Music Health Alliance has helped more than 4,100 music industry professionals and their families, and secured over $10.8 million in health care cost reductions as part of that effort. Their goal is to create a safe and confidential place for the music community to gain the very best healthcare and health insurance solutions through defined and transparent advocacy services with an emphasis on the prevention of illness and overall wellness.

The Music Row Storytellers organizing committee is a group of music industry professionals dedicated to celebrating the leaders, influencers and storytellers that “came before,” while providing awareness and financial contribution to a music industry related non-profit organization.

Real Deacon Claybournes struggle to pay for healthcare


Tennessean – Real Deacon Claybournes struggle to pay for health care

A Tale of Two Deacons – A True Story About Deacon Claybourne in Nashville, TN

As a fan of ABC’s Nashville, I was heartbroken as a doctor frantically tried to resuscitate Deacon Claybourne during a life-saving liver transplant at the end of last season. Great story, right?! But there is a very real piece of this plot line that has been grossly overlooked. How is the real-world musician Deacon paying for this complicated surgery, including the cost of medication, rehabilitation and harvesting his sister’s liver. And based on current music industry statistics, it’s unlikely Deacon even has health insurance to cover these costs.

As the founder of Music Health Alliance, a non-profit that provides free services including healthcare access to clients like Deacon every day, this story is more than just a cliffhanger; it’s real life. It represents a surprisingly huge deficit within the entertainment industry that needs the attention of Nashville, our city whose vibrant foundation flourishes from the fruits of creative business. Despite the perceived prosperity of this industry, fame does not always equal fortune.

On ABC’s Nashville, Deacon is a self-employed singer songwriter who co-wrote a string of hits for Rayna James in the early ‘90’s, and recently joined Luke Wheeler on tour before discovering he has liver cancer.

Deacon Claybourne’s Projected 2015 Income:

Songwriting Mechanical Royalties (6 top 10 songs, 1993-1997)$10,055.36

Songwriting Performance Royalties (6 top 10 songs, 1993-1997$12,202.00

Digital Royalties (6 top 10 songs, 1993-1997) $387.27

Touring Musician Income (25 shows) $9625.00

TOTAL $32,269.63

Deacon’s Songwriter and Touring Income for 2015 is 277% above the Federal Poverty level. As a result, he is not eligible for financial assistance from any Nashville area hospitals.

Now let’s take a look at the cost of Deacon’s healthcare:

Liver Transplant $739,100.00

Liver Donor Surgery $148,000.00

Code Blue during Transplant $44,180.00

TOTAL $931,280.00

Figures from the Milliman Research Report’s 2014 Organ and Tissue Transplant Costs and Baptist Memorial Healthcare’s Cost Calculator. Totals do not include medications, travel or complications post surgery.

The truth is Deacon Claybourne would be uninsured and unable to provide the typically required six-figure down payment for this kind of procedure. He would be bankrupted by medical bills or, even worse, unable to have surgery in the first place. Like Deacon, most of the music industry is self-employed, resulting in a deficit in healthcare coverage and protection against illness and injury. The crisis management norm in our industry is to pass the bucket to help cover emergency medical costs, leading to a perpetual cycle that leaves our music makers vulnerable, impacting the longevity of their careers and the vitality of our industry.

Music Health Alliance is working to break this cycle. In only 2.5 years we’ve served over 2,000 clients. The real stories from our “Deacons” who have been served by Music Health Alliance:

A Southern Rock artist given a death sentence because he had no health insurance is now able to receive treatment for liver cancer and is awaiting a liver transplant.

A Grammy winner eating rice and reusing disposable diapers because he could not afford his Parkinson’s medication. MHA quickly determined he received incorrect information from several pharmacies. Now he has income to meet his needs and access to all of his medicines.

A booking agent with a traumatic brain injury and hospital bill totaling $1.5 million didn’t have access to rehabilitation. Through MHA’s services, he now has a $0 balance hospital bill and access to nationwide treatment options.

If the writers of Nashville really want to pull Deacon Claybourne out of the cliffhanger, they should call Music Health Alliance.

Billy Block Returns to The Sutler to Benefit Music Health Alliance



October 14th, The Billy Block show will return to The Sutler. 19th strong year in Nashville and we are going back to our roots.

Billy Block has played with everyone from Billy Joe Shaver to Frank Black (The Pixies) and has hosted many local and nationally touring artists on his stage . The Billy Block show is regaining its momentum and stature as it continues to grow on the old and young.

We want to personally invite you to see this legendary show. It is the culmination of the old Nashville we all love and remember with its Americana inspired sound and its Western Beat, while at the same time playing host to that fresh, emerging sound that is defining new Nashville.

Billy is excited to once again roll out the Billy Block Show at the Sutler and showcase these talented, budding artists on this classic, Nashville stage.

You will not want to miss these performances:

Danika Portz and her knock-you-on-your-ass pipes have gained the attention of IRS records whose execs are sure to be in attendance.

Seth Ennis can seriously draw a crowd. Something about this simple, American made, military raised boy has gained the attention of fans and labels alike.

Girl next door, pro-cheerleader, Baylor Wilson can not only sing, she can write. Literally everyone who hears her, loves her. Literally. (like…literally).

You haven’t heard of them? Seriously? Little Honey may be brand spankin new, but their latest youtube cover is spreading like wild fire!

Rocky Block.  Taking after his father in talent and stage presence, this apple is sure to grow as big as the tree it fell from.

The Oginalii girls. The underground of Nashville is their domain, and folk-grunge is their game. (Robert Plant’s symbol is literally tattoo’d on the lead singers arm.)

Ticket price? That’s so old-Nashville. 

Tickets are whatever price you think they should be and the proceeds go to support the Music Health Alliance.

You have read that correctly, there is NO set ticket price. Just a donation of your choice in amount at the door that goes to benefit a charity that is really all what the Billy Block Show is about. Music Health Alliance is dedicating to “helping heal those who make Music by providing access to healthcare through services that PROTECT, DIRECT & CONNECT music industry professionals with medical and financial solutions.”

Billy Block has been around the block and is now ready to start doing things differently. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks! The show has always been about supporting and nurturing artists, and now we have the opportunity to do that on a level like never before.

Can’t wait to see you there!

MUSIC HEALS: Music’s Top 100 Feel Good Songs

Music Heals!  Anyone who has had their heart broken knows this, and now there is scientific evidence to support the theory.  For those of you making a living writing, producing, playing and working in the business of music, keep on keepin’ on, because you are providing some of the best holistic, non-invasive medicine in the world!

The notion that Music Heals dates back to the writings of Plato and Aristotle. More recently, JAMA reported in 1914 that phonographs played in recovery and operating rooms increased positive outcomes for patients, and we now know that musicians played at the bedside of wounded soldiers in both World Wars to help ease physical and emotional trauma.  The idea that Music Heals is nothing new.  What is new is that evidence-based medicine and modern science now support what musicians, patients and star-crossed lovers have known for centuries, that Music Heals.

What is it about music that actually heals?  Music is a form of sensory stimulation that triggers the pleasure system of the brain.  According to brain-imaging studies music is processed throughout both brain hemispheres activating the areas that are responsible for language, listening, motor skills, emotion, memory and creativity. “We believe music can cause neurochemical changes in specific parts of the brain,” says Mark Jude Tramo, neurology professor at Harvard Medical School and director of the Institute for Music & Brain Science in Boston.  “Music is a powerful auditory stimulus.” So powerful in fact that it causes the release of dopamine, which is responsible for motivation and feelings of happiness.  These endorphins also suppress pain.  Current studies similarly link music to the release of immunoglobulins, which help fight disease. Music as a clinical therapy is now used all over the world in many ways:  pain management, mood and mobility improvement for patients with Parkinson’s disease and brain trauma, medication reduction after surgery, anxiety relief, hospital stay reduction for children and adults, nausea reduction after chemotherapy, treatment for depression, enhanced concentration and creativity, and for lowering blood pressure. Music offers a nonthreatening treatment tool that is attractive to doctors and patients alike.  There is essentially no downside that’s any more serious than a misplayed chord.

What songs cause that dopamine release for music makers?  What are the songs that make people in the music business feel good? What songs lift the spirits of those immersed in lyrics, melodies and the business of music day in and day out?  Throughout last year I asked music industry friends and associates to answer these questions. I received almost 1000 responses. From these responses I compiled a list of the . . .

The music you are making each day has an impact much greater than a chart position or Sound Scan report.  As music makers you are helping Kenneth, a stroke survivor, learn to speak again, and you are giving Deanna, a fourteen year-old with cancer, a reason to keep fighting.   Great music inspires us, relaxes us, energizes us – in short, great music heals us and keeps us well.  So instead of taking two aspirin, listen to a little “We Must Believe In Magic” before going to bed — because Music Heals.
