A star-studded benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium will provide desperately needed funds to relief efforts in the Bahamas following the destruction of Hurricane Dorian last week. Organized and hosted by songwriter Patrick Davis (founder ofSongwriters in Paradise and frontman of Patrick Davis and his Midnight Choir), the Sept. 16 concert will feature some of Nashville’s most talented songwriters and notable artists, including Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Jamey Johnson, LOCASH, Drew Holcomb, Randy Houser, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish, Devin Dawson, James Otto, Dan Tyminski, Ryan Hurd, Charles Esten, Riley Green, Patrick Davis, Chris Gelbuda, Wyatt Durette, Channing Wilson and Django Walker.
Songwriters in Paradise (SIP), a music festival featuring some of the best songwriters in the world, has been a fixture in Hope Town on the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas for the past 8 years, and the performers, fans and locals have formed a special bond since the festival began. Sadly, Hope Town and the Abacos were the first place in the Bahamas to receive the brunt of Hurricane Dorian’s fury. Patrick Davis and the rest of the SIP Family immediately stepped up to help out their friends, beginning with a GoFundMeCampaign that has raised over $350,000 to-date. An online auction featuring one-of-a-kind items will also coincide with the event. The GoFundMe Campaign, benefit concert and auction will benefit the overall Hurricane Dorian relief efforts but especially those on the outer Bahamian islands who may not be as quick to receive government aid.
