Featuring Vince Gill & Friends

April 9, 2013

7:30 p.m.
Ryman Auditorium, Nashville

The 2013 concert is over, and what a fantastic show it was! HUGE THANKS to Vince Gill and his "friends," Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Earl Klugh, and Patty Loveless, for making it a night to remember.

Grammy-award winning country superstar Vince Gill headlined the 15th annual Jammin’ to Beat the Blues concert to benefit Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee (MHAMT) on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at the historic Ryman Auditorium. This is Vince's 5th year in a row headlining and each show is a virtual sell out!

Vince Gill broke out in the country music scene in 1990 and has since won 20 Grammy Awards and 19 Country Music Association honors.  He has sold more than 26 million albums.  Vince is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Since 1999, Jammin’ to Beat the Blues has increased community awareness about the serious impact of mental health disorders on people’s lives and fostered dialog and widespread understanding of mental illness. Past performers have included: John Cowan, Emerson Drive, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Andy Griggs, Kathy Mattea, Heidi Newfield, Riders In The Sky, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Tanya Tucker, and LeAnn Womack.
