Phil Vassar, Chuck Wicks, Steel Magnolia and Sarah Darling are just a few of the artists who will perform during the ‘Let Us In’ concert benefiting The Women and Cancer Fund on November 7 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The Women and Cancer Fund was established in the memory of Linda McCartney and promotes prevention, lifestyle awareness, enhances available health services and advocates advanced breast cancer and children’s cancer research. Sir Paul McCartney has given his approval of the event in his wife’s memory.
The concert will be hosted by Jeff Daniels, who will also perform at the event. Other artists scheduled to appear include SHeDAISY, Cheyenne Kimball (formerly of Gloriana), Juliana Cole, Nikki Shannon Fernandez, Jordyn Shellhart, Nancy Sirianni, Samantha Landrum, and Blue Sky Riders. Each artist will perform an original version of a Sir Paul McCartney song as well as their own material.
The artists, as well as others who will not be in attendance, have also contributed their original McCartney songs for an album that will also benefit The Women and Cancer Fund. “Let Us In” Nashville – A Tribute To Linda McCartney will be released November 21.
