Kip Moore and skateboarding legend Tony Hawk rolled into downtown Nashville on Sept. 10 to host the Music City Skate Jam, a skate park fundraising effort that turned into a benefit for those affected by the recent hurricanes.

By donating through Kip’s Kids Fund or the Tony Hawk Foundation, attending fans supported those affected by the recent disasters, while enjoying a stacked lineup of events, including performances by Jordan Davis and Dee Jay Silver, before Tony, Alan Young, Elliot Sloan, Jordyn Barratt and Kevin Staab thrilled fans as part of an hour-long skating demo.

Kip closed out the day’s festivities, performing a number tunes, including “Beer Money,” Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” and “Just Another Girl,” which songwriter Jeffrey Steele joined him on.

Fans can continue to donate now through Sept. 15 at 5 p.m. CT by texting HAWK to 52182 or by taking part in Tony and Kip’s online auction.

Check out our photo gallery from the event.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
