Country music, a genre long known for its do-gooding & family-like bond, gathered together to help one of its own, Robin Majors, at Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville, TN. Majors, a beloved behind-the-scenes guy with 37+ years in the touring industry, was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer and miraculously given a new liver in January of this year. The event last night was organized to raise money to help offset the astronomical and ongoing medical bills.
Hosted by SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, the show featured Kacey Musgraves, Jake Owen, Troy Gentry, Wade Hayes, Darryl Worley, David Adam Byrnes, Jim Quick, Ray Scott, Paulette Carlson, Brian Nutter, Mark Collie, Jon Berry, Henry Paul & others.
Majors, who is currently on the road with Kenny Chesney, is known for his wide smile and positive attitude on the road. He would like to thank MusicCares, The Grand Ole Opry Trust Fund and the Academy of Country Music for financial assistance through their respective programs and Vanderbilt University Medical Center for the excellent care he has received through this entire ordeal.
For those who unable to attend the benefit, there are two ways to make donations: Straight into the Robin Majors Gift of Life Fund, through Wells Fargo Private Bank, 3100 West End Ave, Ste 550, Nashville, TN, 37203. Attn: Danielle Bouharoun. Donations can also be made online here.
