Grammy winner Lee Greenwood will be performing tonight at the Dustin Wells Foundation’s Gift of Music concert to benefit the W.O. Smith School of Music. Greenwood will join Peter Frampton and Peter Cetera as they lend their musical talents to celebrate a very special young man.
After Dustin Jack Wells lost his life in a car accident in 2005, his family and friends found a way to keep his memory alive and help others in the process. A fund was set up with all monetary donations used to reach out to others in memory of Dustin. Donating to the W.O. Smith School of Music is just one way the foundation enriches young lives.
“I am honored to share the “Gift of Music” that God has given me to benefit our community and the Dustin Wells Foundation,” said Greenwood. “Through all of us working together, many young lives in the W.O. Smith School of Music outreach program will feel the magic of making music and help them find motivation to live a vibrant and useful life. The tragic loss of Dustin Wells is a reminder that every life is God’s gift. Let’s help as many as we can.“
Since its inception in 2008, the benefit concert has had the support of some of music’s greatest artists, including Dolly Parton, Ronnie Dunn, Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Gunnar Nelson, and many other generous and talented musicians who have donated their time and talent to support the efforts and causes of Dustin’s foundation.
The Gift of Music concert is tonight, January 24 at 7:30 PM at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. For more information, please visit www.ryman.com
