Bringing out the big guns to help restore Nashville‘s historic Second Avenue.

A large part of the downtown Second Avenue district has remained closed since the Christmas Day bombing damaged over 40 buildings, including several that are either completely collapsed or will require demolition.

As the city works on rebuilding the tourist hotspot just blocks from Lower Broadway, several artists are coming together for a benefit concert to help raise money for the restoration efforts.

Tonight, Newschannel 5 in Nashville is airing a two hour livestream concert benefitting the 2ndAveStrong campaign, a fund that was created in the wake of the bombing to support structural assessments and facade repairs for the historic buildings on Second Avenue.

The concert, which will be broadcast from the Wildhorse Saloon on Second Avenue, will feature a star-studded lineup with performances from Ashley McBryde, Scotty McCreery, Lee Brice, Old Dominion, Lindsay Ell, Phil Vassar, Tyler Rich and Shenandoah, as well as highlighting the role Second Avenue has played in Nashville’s history.

And the broadcast will also feature a tribute to the heroic first responders who worked to evacuate the Second Avenue area in the minutes before the bombing.

The concert kicks off at 7 PM central time tonight, and will be livestreamed both on Newschannel 5 here in Nashville and on the Grand Ole Opry’s YouTube page.

Organizers have set a goal of raising $2 million for the immediate and long-term restoration of Second Avenue, feel free to drop a few bucks in the virtual tip jar or send a donation to 2ndAveStrong.
