The Dustin Wells Foundation’s Gift of Music concert to benefit the W.O. Smith School of Music announces “Dolly Parton: Pure and Simple” will take the stage of the historic Ryman Auditorium on July 31st.
Since its inception in 2008, the benefit concert has had the support of some of music’s greatest artists, including Ronnie Dunn, Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Peter Cetera, Lee Greenwood, Peter Frampton, Gunnar Nelson, and many other generous and talented musicians who have donated their time and talent to support the efforts and causes of Dustin’s foundation.
Tickets for “Dolly Parton: Pure and Simple” are $85 and $55 plus applicable services charges and are available starting at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 20 online only at www.ryman.com. A limited number of VIP packages will be available at www.dustinwellsgiftofmusic.com.
“The ‘Gift of Music’ is something that runs deep within my kin folks,” says Dolly Parton. “I love and cherish The Ryman and I am really excited to perform there to help raise money for the Dustin Wells Foundation. This goes to help many young kids that are part of the W.O. Smith School of Music. Through all of us working together we can make a difference in helping a child feel the magic in making music.”
After Dustin Jack Wells lost his life in a car accident in 2005, his family and friends found a way to keep his memory alive and help others in the process. A fund was set up with all monetary donations used to reach out to others in memory of Dustin. Donating to the W.O. Smith School of Music is just one way the foundations enriches young lives.
The Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress, and philanthropist Dolly Parton is scheduled to perform four SOLD OUT shows at Dollywood on August 8th and 9th to benefit the Imagination Library. The addition of this concert marks the first full Nashville show Dolly has headlined in 12 years.
Parton most recently wrapped up her “2014 Blue Smoke World Tour,” where the 100 million album selling singer performed in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Norway, and Switzerland.

Hunter Hayes recently released two songs (“21” and “Where It All Begins” with Lady Antebellum) via the streaming service Spotify; the change in how he’s releasing music is a reflection of his resolution to be brave.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen with all the stuff with Spotify right now. Because there’s no record, it’s just songs, we’re releasing songs. I don’t know what the next phase of the music industry is going to be. That seems a bit scary. But it’s the year to do that, we have to be brave.”
At the beginning of 2015, Hunter was chatting with some friends and made a resolution to make 2015 the year to be brave.
“I’m tired of being cautious. I’m tired of being too careful because I can be, I overthink a lot. I wanna start operating more from here [points to heart] than here [points to head].”
So what does bravery mean to him?
“It means doing everything you’re fearful of… The things you’re scared of just because you’ve never done ‘em before; it’s probably a good time to do it, you know?”
One of the ways that Hunter encourages fans to be brave is by donating blood. In his “Sleeves Up” partnership with American Red Cross, his goal is to reach 21,000 blood donations by the end of the year. Fans can take the pledge here: https://sleevesup.redcrossblood.org/Hunter-Hayes-SleevesUp-
Hunter is currently on the “Wheels Up” tour with Lady Antebellum and Sam Hunt. For more information, visit http://www.hunterhayes.com

There are prayer warriors, all over the world, most of them women, who pray daily for the health of everyone suffering or in need, whether they know them, personally, or not. They do their work totally without fanfare, sometimes as a group, often individually. If I have confessed my sins and been forgiven, somewhere someone will be praying for me, even if in a general way. I won’t even know I am in their prayers and may never suspect that my healing has come through them. Bless these prayerful unselfish people, Lord Reward them for their efforts on behalf of all believers who are ill, and assure them that their efforts are not in vain.
