MCA Nashville artist David Nail has announced plans for a charity concert benefiting the Cancers And Blood Disorders Auxiliary of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation for Wednesday, September 26th. “Going Country For A Cure” will be held at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille in Pittsburgh. Proceeds from the event will go towards the Payton Wright Foundation. Gwen Sebastian will open up the show for David.
“The story of how brave little Payton was caught my attention, then captured my heart,” said David. “To see this little girl fight so hard, never give up and be so positive… You realize what struggle really is, and you want to do whatever you can so no more children have to face this sort of terrible illness.”
David first heard about Payton’s battle with a brain cancer in 2006, and he’s been touched by her story ever since. It was during an ESPN basketball broadcast in December 2006, when the announcer was talking about Payton, when David heard her story and immediately reached out to her father. David told Payton’s family that he’d do anything he could to support the foundation, and will be headlining the charity concert.
Tickets are only $25 and are on-sale right now, with VIP tickets, which include a buffet dinner, VIP access, and a meet-and-greet with David for $100 each. To get your tickets for a great cause, or for more information on the event, visit Going Country For A Cure’s ticketing page.
