After a call-to-action that raised nearly $250,000 for charity, Sturgill Simpson honored his fans with a special one-night performance broadcast live from the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. The show continued fundraising efforts for several organizations including the Special Forces Foundation, the Equity Alliance, and the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

THE EQUITY ALLIANCE (https://theequityalliance.org)
The Equity Alliance proactively advocates for African Americans and other communities of color to have a fair and just opportunity at realizing the American dream. They are a Nashville-based grassroots non-profit advocacy group that seeks to equip citizens with tools and strategies to engage in the civic process and empower them to take action on issues affecting their daily lives.
The Recording Academy and MusiCares established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help people in the music industry affected by the coronavirus disease outbreak and subsequent cancellation of multiple music events. From hotel and bar gigs to major music festivals, COVID-19 is deeply impacting live music events, and the creative community behind it all.
