Billy Block has been a mainstay in Nashville’s music scene for years, both as a session musician and as a radio host (just to name a few). Therefore, it was a shock to everyone when he was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma earlier this year. The outpouring of support for Billy and his family in this difficult time has been astounding, and that spirit of giving is going to keep going with a 9-hour benefit concert at The Rutledge in Nashville on February 17th.
The Rutledge’s benefit concert will feature some of Nashville’s finest musicians, many of whom count themselves as Block’s friends. Hosted by Marty Raybon, Perry Danos, and Jeff Pearson, the show features the likes of Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Jewell, the Twangtown Paramours, Jeff Baston, Sam Cooper, Buddy Jewell, Ed Coffey, Britt Savage, Abigail Rose, and many more special guests.
All proceeds from the show will go to the Billy Block Family Fund. For more information about purchasing tickets, visit the Rutledge’s website.
