In the early morning hours of March 3, 2020, the neighborhood Soundstripe calls home was hit by a devastating tornado. Homes, businesses, and historic buildings were flattened, neighbors were displaced, and lives were lost.
While we continue to grieve, we are also reminded that this isn’t the first time that Nashville has faced tragedy at the hands of mother nature.
It was only 10 years ago that we experienced a flood that also left parts of our city in ruins.
Then the magic we all know to be the core of this city came to life. Nashville residents rallied and rose from the ruins together, helping and supporting one another in every way imaginable.
We know that today is no different. Nashville is more than Music City. It is home to a community that is resilient, caring, and strong. It’s our home, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
On March 12, we’re holding the first ever event in our brand new community series called More Than Music. It was birthed from a desire to put our flag in the ground saying, “We’re more than just a music company. We’re a people company. We’re a company built by creators, for creators — because we want to see others succeed.”
In the spirit of new beginnings, we were planning to unveil a new shirt at the event —a personal banner to wear as a reminder that we’re more than meets the eye, a reminder of our responsibility to one another.
Today, that truth, and that responsibility has presented a choice: Our community is in need. What are we going to do about it? And, who are we going to do it with?
Right now, you can purchase this shirt and all proceeds from sales will go directly to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. We know there’s more to be done, but this feels like the best next step.
Not all who read this call Nashville home, but if you’re looking for a way to help, we hope you’ll join us.
**Please note that this purchase is a pre-order and that turnaround time will be slightly longer than normal as these shirts were designed in response to the Nashville tornadoes. We will let you know as soon as your item(s) ships. Thank you so much for your patience and support.
