We think it’s time to recognize the folks who make Nashville a more welcoming place, for all of us.
Of course, that includes the business community, who have a large part not only in making Music City a better place to live, but who do so while lending their support to artists and creatives of all kinds.
The Black Lives Matter movement has inspired artists all over the country and world to use their platforms to speak out on the systematic injustice and inequality in our society. That includes art coming straight from the heart of Music City.
Watch ‘Chosen Ones’
On Thursday, June 4, our Quinn Spinn family came together on a special edition of our weekly Facebook Live broadcast, QuaranTimes, to speak from the heart about the events in our world. This is that episode.
To be clear, ours is a platform for people of all races, religions, sexual orientations, ethnicities, and circumstances. We stand with the Black community in this important time in American history.
On Friday, we brought another vitual installment of the Underground Writers Round to you. Naturally, our quarantined format allows us to bring songwriters from anywhere into the fold — so, we took full advantage of the opportunity, and showcased writers from all over the country!

As we continue to weather the COVID-19 storm, we want to let you know that Underground Music Collective is committed to continually supporting the greater music community, in any way possible.
In fact, we’ve come up with a few ways, all rolled into one plan. Today, we’re excited to share it with you!
Keep the Music Playing
At the moment, maybe we can’t all be together face-to-face. Even so, technology can help us share the music with one another.
Watch The Round
Some find peace in creating during this time of global uncertainty. Others do so by resting, reflecting and, perhaps, grieving for the world.
No matter what self-care looks like to you, it’s important to do it right.
Get Some Real Talk!
Even in these strange times, we weren’t about to let a month go by without an Underground Writers Round.
Once again, we’ll bring it to you in the comfort of your own home!
Even in times of pandemic worries and social distancing, our
communities are not homes for hate: That’s the message more than a dozen
musicians from across the Mid-Atlantic will come together online to share next
The virtual “Come Together” concert at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) on Friday, April 3, will feature live performances from the musicians’ own homes, which are scattered across Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, as well as the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas. The benefit event supports No Place for Hate®, a 20-year old initiative of the Anti-Defamation League that is present in hundreds of school districts across the country.
Earlier this week, our partners at Tuk Law Offices held a livestream video conference to discuss the impacts of the abrupt interruptions to live entertainment that have resulted from the global COVID-19 outbreak, and which have temporarily left countless industry professionals without work.
Join host Bryan Tuk alongside panelists Patrick Brogan, Chief Programming Officer at ArtsQuest (Bethlehem, PA) and UMC Founder Gerard Longo to discuss the impact of the pandemic on live entertainers and presenters alike.
