COUNTRY FRIED ROCK HELPS FIGHT MUSICIAN SUICIDES
WRITTEN BY ADAM SHEETS ON 01 OCTOBER 2013. POSTED IN NEWS – NEWS
I’m sure everybody reading this can think of several musicians who have taken their own lives. It’s a long list that includes a few of my personal favorite artists such as Phil Ochs, Gary Stewart and Del Shannon. As much as I would love to have those guys around making music, their families and friends would be happy just to have them around.
Now the great podcast and radio show Country Fried Rock has teamed up with the non-profit organization Nuci’s Space to help prevent similar cases and you can help in their effort. For just $5, you can download a 20-track compilation of great country, folk, and Americana artists. Every penny will go directly to Nuci’s Space, a non-profit health and music resource center based in Athens, GA, whose goal is to prevent suicide by providing obstacle-free treatment for musicians suffering from depression and similar disorders, as well as assisting in the emotional physical and professional well-being of musicians.
The goal for the compilation is to pay for 100 mental health counseling appointments for musicians.
The compilation includes brand new, exclusive tracks from Drivin N Cryin, Chickasaw Mud Puppies, Centro-Matic, Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy, Hillbilly Frankenstein, Belle Adair, Chris Porter & the Pollies, Norma Rae, Rebecca Morning, Matt Hudgins, Adam Klein & Nutria, Old Smokey, The Burning Angels, Doc Dailey & Magnolia Devil, Jack Logan & Scott Baxendale, as well as tracks from American Aquarium, The District Attorneys, The Blue Dogs, Mary Jane Daniels, and Michelle Malone.
Please help a great cause.
