Noise Trade’s Nashville Benefit Album

Two weeks ago, Nashville, TN suffered deadly flooding and the country barely seemed to care because the media was distracted by an oil spill in the gulf and a bomb scare in Times Square.

But just because nobody seemed to notice that one of this country’s music capitals was destroyed (to the tune of $1.6billion in damages and 29 dead) doesn’t mean we can’t do something to help — do I find it odd many in this country rushed out to overwhelmingly help Haiti and not Nashville?  A little, though I suppose the Haiti disaster was much, much, much worse.

Noise Trade Records and Lightning 101 have teamed up to offer a free compilation album, featuring some serious Nashville music talent.  The album’s free, but if you leave a donation, all donations will be kicked to The Community Foundation’s Emergency Tennessee Relief Fund.  [via]
