What is Heal the Music Day?
Heal The Music Day is an effort to raise awareness and support for the more than 56,000 Nashvillians 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 benefitting Music Health Alliance.
“In the world of the working musician, good health is something most of us take for granted…that is, until something goes wrong,” said Rodney Crowell. “When and if it does, there is no greater patient advocacy group than our very own Music Health Alliance. MHA has provided support to people across 38 states and so we want to carry the message beyond Nashville and are asking everyone in the music community to pledge a small percentage of their single day earnings on ‘Heal The Music Day’ to MHA so they can continue their critical work for many years to come.”
