CMA joined with Nashville Mayor Megan Barry and the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp. Monday at Ascend Amphitheater to offer the Nashville community the opportunity to honor victims of the Las Vegas shooting. 

Speakers included Barry; Sidney Cox, The Cox Family; Charles Esten, star of CMT’s “Nashville;” Amy Grant; and Sally Williams, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Grand Ole Opry, and CMA Board Chairman.

The candlelight vigil also included performances by Vince Gill (“Go Rest High On That Mountain”), Alison Krauss with Barry Bales, Ron Block, and Sidney and Suzanne Cox (“Amazing Grace”), and Keith Urban (“Bridge Over Troubled Water”).

Although the windy evening prevented a full candlelight glow from the crowd, Esten closed the program by urging the community to let their lights shine from within and support one another. 

The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) has setup the Music City Cares Fund, with 100 percent of donations going to help immediate and long-term needs of victims from the shooting. Click here to learn more.
