They’ll also donate all proceeds from a unique t-shirt being printed for the occasion, and will hold a “sweepstakes” of signed D’Angelico guitars.
Attendees are encouraged to make physical donations at the Ryman concert for the Community Resource Center and Nashville Humane Association
Items needed include personal hygiene items, baby items including formula, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, bottles, battery operated lanterns, tarps, rolls of plastic sheeting, work gloves, vinyl gloves, latex gloves, Windex, Lysol products, batteries and flashlights, towels of all sizes, dog and cat food (wet or dry in sealed packages), collars and leashes.
