Music City Recap

On November 6th, 2023, the vibrant spirit of celebration filled the air as Sound Royalties treated us to an unforgettable soirée! Reflecting on a year marked by joy and achievement, we gathered with our cherished Nashville partners, donors, and friends to revel in the collective triumphs of the past months.

The exquisite Late Great, a hidden speakeasy nestled within The Virgin Hotel, served as the enchanting backdrop for this special evening. Our collaboration with The Virgin Hotel elevated the experience, providing an exclusive space to toast to our shared successes.

Amongst the delightful spread of food and drinks, our senses were treated to the captivating melodies of Corrina Grant Gill and Ron Artis II. These two exceptional artists graced us with the gift of music, turning the evening into a symphony of inspiration.

Ben Dudley, our Executive Director at FG4K, encapsulated the sentiment, stating, “Witnessing the musical prowess of Corrina and Ron is not only inspiring but a poignant reminder of our mission’s core. The thought of a world where such remarkable talents lack recognition is unimaginable. We are indebted to Alex, Allison, Erin, and the entire Sound Royalties team for their steadfast support. This event holds a special place in our hearts. Since June 2022, we’ve distributed over 800 guitars, and as we look ahead to the future, we’re gearing up for even more significant milestones—your continued support will be instrumental!

As we basked in the glow of this extraordinary night, Ben Dudley also urged everyone to mark June 8th, 2023, in their calendars. A day that promises to go down in history, breaking records and leaving an enduring positive mark on Nashville. The echoes of this celebration will resonate, shaping a legacy of musical empowerment that extends far beyond the walls of the Late Great.
