Gibson Gives, the 501(c)3 charitable organization established by Gibson Brands, Inc., has partnered with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF) for the next installment of The Nashville Sessions–a virtual concert series for children’s hospital patients across America. The virtual concert will be available at all 11 closed-circuit hospital networks for Seacrest Studios partner hospitals in September.
The Nashville Sessions concert features performances and interviews with multi-platinum selling, recording artist-songwriter and ACM “New Male Artist of the Year” award winner Jimmie Allen, ACM “New Female Artist of the Year” award-winning multi-platinum singer-songwriter Lauren Alaina, and next-generation country music star Jillian Jacqueline, on location at the all-new Gibson Garage, which offers music fans the ultimate guitar experience–in the heart of downtown Nashville, Music City USA.
The artists perform several songs and talk about the inspiring stories behind their music in sit-down interviews. This installment of The Nashville Sessions will also feature a behind-the-scenes tour of the Gibson Garage, with Gibson’s President and CEO, James “JC” Curleigh.
The Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring today’s youth through entertainment and education-focused initiatives. RSF’s first initiative is to build broadcast media centers, named Seacrest Studios, within pediatric hospitals for patients to explore the creative realms of radio, television, and new media. RSF believes access to multimedia experiences brings patients exciting and stimulating adventures to encourage optimistic thoughts during treatment. RSF started working with Gibson Gives in 2019, and since then, Gibson has donated over $10,500 in guitars and headphones to all Seacrest Studios.
