Current and Former Arista Nashville Artists Lend Their Talent to Help Former Promo Guy

On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, current and former Arista Nashville artists will take to the stage of the historic War Memorial Auditorium in support of Mike Owens at the "Music for Mike" benefit concert. In 2014, Owens, a radio promotion manager with the label throughout the 1990’s, was diagnosed with end stage renal disease and has been placed on dialysis while he awaits a donor kidney.
The Music for Mike list of performers, which reads like a country music Who’s-Who, includes recent Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee Alan Jackson, superstar duo Brooks & Dunn, and critically acclaimed entertainer Brad Paisley, along with BlackHawk, Diamond Rio, Lee Roy Parnell, Pam Tillis, Phil Vassar and Steve Wariner. In total, these artists have sold over 150 million albums and racked up 99 number 1 hits. Backing this stellar line-up is veteran touring band, Sixwire.
Owens’ treatment has led to other health issues and mounting medical bills. In effort to help offset some of these expenses, all the artists, the band and the crew are donating their time for this concert. Proceeds from the sale of tickets will go directly to the Mike Owens Family Trust.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday, August 17th at 10am. Click here to purchase.
