Mitchell Tenpenny, Devin Dawson, Hardy & More to Headline Tornado Relief Benefit Concert at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row

A number of country artists—including Mitchell Tenpenny, Devin Dawson, Hardy, Jessie James Decker, The Band Camino, Chuck Wicks and more—will join forces for a Tornado Relief Concert on March 9 at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row Nashville.

Tornadoes ripped across Tennessee in the early hours of March 3, including a direct hit in downtown Nashville around 12:40 a.m. The tornadoes have claimed at least 24 lives. More than three dozen people are still unaccounted for, while hundreds of structures suffered damage.

The benefit concert, presented by Nash FM 103.3, will also feature a charity raffle with autographed guitars and memorabilia. All of the proceeds and donations from the event will directly benefit Hands On Nashville, which connects volunteers to critical issues facing Middle Tennessee.

Tickets are on sale now. Must be 21 years of age or older to attend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
