3rd Annual “Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda” Set for April 23 at Cannery Hall to Benefit Music Health Alliance

NASHVILLE, Tenn., — Music Health Alliance (MHA) announces the lineup for its third annual Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda fundraiser event to benefit the Nashville-based nonprofit as it continues its life-saving advocacy and assistance for the music community nationwide. Iconic artists and songwriters Ashley McBryde, Vince Gill, Natalie Hemby, and Aaron Raitiere are set to join forces in an impressive evening of stories and songs at 7:00pm on Tuesday, April 23 at the esteemed Cannery Hall. Learn more about table sponsorships or email Laura Crowell to reserve your table today.

Grammy-winning songwriter and MHA board member Liz Rose conceptualized Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda as a compelling spin on the traditional writers round where guests get to experience never-heard-before songs and the ones that got away — the “coulda, shoulda, woulda” songs — from some of today’s biggest hitmakers.

“We have a few tables left for ‘Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda,’ and I promise you will not want to have FOMO when you hear about this incredible night of music,” shared Music Health Alliance Founder and CEO, Tatum Allsep. “We’re honored to have the brilliant and talented Ashley McBryde, Vince Gill, Natalie Hemby, and Aaron Raitiere, as well as the generous support of our sponsors and table hosts. Together, we will ensure that no one in the music industry will have to face the agonizing decision between putting food on the table and affording life-saving medication. This night makes a difference in the lives of those who make the music we love!”

Since its inception in 2013, MHA has provided advocacy and support, available at no cost, to nearly 25,000 music industry professionals, saving clients and their families over $127M in healthcare costs. Events like Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda, grants, and individual and corporate donations are critical to continue MHA’s advocacy and free services. Eighty-six percent of all dollars donated go directly to MHA’s programs and services. Every $1 donation equals $30 in life-saving healthcare resources to help #HealTheMusic.

MHA’s powerhouse team of 13 works tirelessly to assist music industry professionals with the entire spectrum of their healthcare needs, ranging from assistance with medical bills to physical and mental health guidance, including finding doctors or prescription medicine, searching for financial grants to aid in recovery from serious health issues, affordable health insurance, or answers to Medicare questions.


Music Health Alliance’s mission is to #HealTheMusic by providing access to healthcare by removing barriers, finding solutions, and restoring health and hope for music industry professionals nationwide. It fights so those in the community never have to feel alone in a health crisis and remove obstacles so patients can receive critical, life-saving care. MHA’s resources are available at no cost to any person who has worked in the music industry for three or more years. Spouses, life partners, and children of qualifying individuals may also benefit.

GRAMMY, CMA and ACM award winner, Ashley McBryde, cut her teeth playing country songs in biker bars — and it shows. The Grand Ole Opry member’s 2018 major label debut, Girl Going Nowhere, (Warner Music Nashville) charmed The New York TimesNPRRolling Stone, Paste, The Washington Post, and more, all en route to landing a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album. McBryde closed out 2019 with ACM New Female Artist, CMT Breakout Artist, a New Artist of the Year win at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards and two nominations for the 2020 GRAMMYs for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for “Girl Goin’ Nowhere.” Her follow-up, Never Will, was tagged by Rolling Stone as one of the most anticipated of the year alongside NPR, who also ranked her Top 10 RIAA Platinum-Certified single “One Night Standards” as one of the best songs of 2019. The album earned McBryde a 2021 GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album, making Never Will the only album nominated for Country Album of the Year by the ACMs, CMAs, and the Recording Academy in the same award season. Her GRAMMY-winning duet with Carly Pearce, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” went all the way to No. 1 and earned McBryde and Pearce the ACM and CMA award for Musical Event of the Year. She was also honored with the 2022 CMA International Artist Achievement Award for the most significant creative growth, development, and promotion of the country music industry outside of the United States.

McBryde’s collaborative project, Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, featuring Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Pillbox Patti, Caylee Hammack, Aaron Raitiere, and Benjy Davis earned McBryde her third consecutive GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album, making her a six-time GRAMMY nominee. The project earned McBryde her second consecutive nomination for CMA Album of the Year, along with Music Video of the Year for “Light On In The Kitchen” from her latest critically acclaimed album, The Devil I Know.

McBryde is currently on her headlining The Devil I Know Tour, presented by Ariat, and kicked off 2024 with a sold-out run of shows in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Northern Ireland before returning to North America for the second leg through the summer.

One of the most popular artists in modern country music, Vince Gill is famous for his top-notch songwriting, world-class guitar playing, and warm, soaring tenor ­— all wrapped up in a quick and easy wit. Gill achieved his big breakthrough in 1990 with “When I Call Your Name,” which won both the Country Music Association’s (CMA) Single and Song of the Year awards, as well as a Grammy for Best Male Country Vocal Performance. In total, Gill has won 18 CMA Awards, 22 Grammy Awards, and 8 Academy of Country Music Awards.

In 1991, Gill was invited to become a member of The Grand Ole Opry, and in 2007 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2012, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A gifted songwriter, Gill’s compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005. He was awarded the prestigious BMI Icon award in 2014. Throughout his career he has released 21 albums, sold over 30M albums, and charted 45 singles. In 2022, Gill was inducted into the Musician’s Hall of Fame.

Always considering himself a musician above all else, Gill has over the years been a part of some iconic bands including Pure Prairie League, The Notorious Cherry Bombs, and The Time Jumpers. In 2017, Gill was asked to join the Eagles on the road and continues to be a part of the historic band’s tour.


Whether it’s an ingenious turn of phrase or a heart bustin’ through-your-chest chorus, Natalie Hemby infuses her remarkable songwriting with honesty so earthy and pure it resonates long after the first listen. “You know when you hear a song, and it takes you back to a memory?” she asks. “That’s what I want. I want to give people moments to remember.”

Since signing her first publishing deal at 19, the supremely talented and prolific Nashville native has become one of country music’s most successful and sought-after songwriters amassing eight #1 Country singles including Lady A’s “Downtown,” Justin Moore’s “You Look Like I Need A Drink,” Jon Pardi’s “Heartache Medication,” Little Big Town’s “Pontoon,” and “Tornado,” and Miranda Lambert’s “White Liar,” “Automatic,” and “Bluebird.” Her songs have also been recorded by the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Maren Morris, Sheryl Crow, Dierks Bentley, Eli Young Band, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Isaak, Blake Shelton, and Lee Ann Womack, among many others.

In 2019, together with Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires, Natalie joined The Highwomen. Their self-titled debut album, widely hailed as one of the year’s best, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country chart and won Americana Music Honors & Awards for Album of the Year, Duo/Group of the Year, and Song of the Year for their single “Crowded Table,” which is also one of two Country Song of the Year GRAMMY® nominations she received this year (the other is for Lambert’s aforementioned “Bluebird.”) In 2020, Natalie won her first GRAMMY® Award, Best Song Written for Visual Media for Lady Gaga’s “I’ll Never Love Again,” from A Star Is Born.

Now she’s set to take centerstage once again with Pins and Needles, a brilliant 11-track collection that captures the full-range of her musical gifts. Pins and Needles, her 2nd solo album (following 2017’s warmly received Puxico), was produced and mixed by her husband Mike Wrucke (Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies) and features songs she co-wrote with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne, Jeff Trott, and Rose Cousins among others. The album also includes musical contributions from renowned keyboardist Chuck Leavell and pedal steel guitarist Greg Leisz.

Inspired by Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, and the early ’90s rock and roots she came up on, Pins and Needles is replete with ear-worm anthems (“Heroes”), heart-rending ballads, (“Radio Silence” and “Heart Condition”), acid-tongued, sharp-witted swagger, (“Hardest Part About Business”) and deep-grooved rockers (“New Madrid,” and “It Takes One To Know One.”)

Over the course of her spectacular career, Natalie Hemby has quietly become one of Nashville’s MVP’s, a driving force among the city’s songwriting and artist community. With Pins and Needles, she’s poised for even greater recognition, and a well-earned place in the spotlight.


Aaron Raitiere is a songwriter, singer, performer, storyteller, and visual artist from Danville, Kentucky. He’s recently been on the road opening for Anderson East, The Steel Woods, Midland, Paul Cauthen, Miranda Lambert, Brent Cobb, Hayes Carll, Ashley Monroe, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Willie Nelson and Family.

Raitiere won a Grammy in 2019 for co-writing “I’ll Never Love Again” with Lady Gaga, Hillary Lindsay, and Natalie Hemby for A Star Is Born. He’s also placed cuts with Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Lori McKenna, the Oak Ridge Boys, Lone Bellow, Randy Rogers Band, Chris Shiflett, Midland, Brent Cobb, Shooter Jennings, and more.

Raitiere’s debut album, Single Wide Dreamer, was released in 2022. Anderson East and Miranda Lambert, who co-produced the album, appear alongside Nashville musicians Dave Cobb, Natalie Hemby, and Ashley Monroe, as well as Robert Randolph, Foy Vance, and Bob Weir.

With a laid-back, speak-singing delivery, Single Wide Dreamer immediately conveys Raitiere’s contentment in living a low-key life. And although every song on the album could be considered a love song in its own way, what really ties them together is his observant writing, which is sometimes reflective, sometimes irreverent, but always inspired by his own experiences.

An avid reader, Raitiere names Edward Abbey, John McPhee, and Delia Owens as among his favorite authors, while musically he cites artists ranging from Raffi to Dave Van Ronk to Too $hort. Among his greatest influences is Shel Silverstein, a master of wordplay and storytelling. A talented painter and illustrator himself, Raitiere often posts his original sketches to Instagram and recently had his first art exhibit at LabCanna in Nashville, Tennessee.
