Grace Bowers’ Benefit Show for a Safer Tennessee

She may not be able to vote yet, but Grace Bowers doesn’t let that stop her from making a difference. The 17-year-old guitar prodigy hosted her second benefit show, “An Evening Celebrating Love, Life, and Music” on Monday night at the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville. The event raised money and awareness for MusiCares and Voices for a Safer Tennessee.

Following the tragedy that unfolded at the Covenant School in Nashville last spring, Grace saw a need for gun reform. “As a young person who cannot yet vote, it can feel helpless watching these events unfold and not being able to do anything,” she explained on Instagram. “So, I created this charity show to have a voice and to advocate for safer gun laws and a change.” 

The night featured a variety of talent, including: Lukas Nelson, Sista Strings, The Cadillac Three, John Osborne, Lucie Silvas, Butch Walker, Caroline Jones, Charlie Worsham, Maggie Rose, Shane Hawkins, Devon Gilfillian, Jared James Nichols, Tommy Prine, Meg Mcree, Terence F. Clark, Jeremy Short, Melanie Faye, Zach Williams, Abby Hamilton, and more.

Grace’s own band, Grace Bowers & the Hodge Podge, performed their debut single “Tell Me Why U Do That,” along with covers of beloved songs. Surprise guests Sierra Hull and John Oates made an appearance.
