Artists, fans, and industry friends alike will gather to honor country music hitmaker and ACM award-winner Jeff Carson at “A Music Memorial For Jeff Carson” on May 10 at 7 p.m. CT at The Nashville Palace.
Carson, a ’90s singer-songwriter, died from a heart attack at Williamson Medical Center in Franklin, Tennessee in March of 2022. He was 58.
Set to join the celebration are Michael Ray, Lee Greenwood, Ty Herndon, Wade Hayes, Rhett Akins, Ricochet, Craig Campbell, and more. Throughout the night, performers will share, celebrate and honor their times with Carson through the years.
Danielle Peck of SiriusXM’s Y2K and T. Graham Brown of SiriusXM’s Prime Country will be hosting the event to benefit the Law Enforcement Assistance Partnership (LEAP), a nonprofit organization that assists officers of the FPD during unexpected life events. After retiring from country music, Carson pursued his other lifelong dream and joined the Franklin Police Department where he remained a dedicated officer until his passing.
“I am so happy that many of Jeff’s friends and peers are coming out to honor his memory and, at the same time, raise money for this charitable cause,” shares Carson’s wife, Kim Carson. “Jeff would be so thrilled with what we are doing. He loved his country music family and he loved his law enforcement family, so this will be a really special night.”
Tickets for the special evening are on sale now. For those who cannot make it to the event, an online auction has been set up and donations can be made in Carson’s honor.
