Jamey Johnson, Shooter Jennings and More to Perform at Nikki Mitchell Foundation Fundraiser
Johnson and Jennings will be joined at the April 1 event, which is being held at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tenn., by Jessi Colter, Carlene Carter, Angeleena Presley and the Secret Sisters. The event will honor eight country artists who have been affected by pancreatic cancer, including Ray Price, Hank Cochran, the Carter Family, the Louvin Brothers, Waylon Jennings, Felice Bryant, Webb Pierce and Merlin Littlefield.
The Nikki Mitchell Foundation was founded to honor Nikki Mitchell, Waylon Jennings’ longtime manager, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2013, and raise awareness for research into the illness.
“Nikki Mitchell was one of the most incredible women to walk this earth, and anyone who knew her would say the same thing,” Carter’s Chord‘s Joanna Ott says. “She touched so many lives. Pancreatic cancer took hers too soon, as it does so many people. The foundation donates money to research for early detection and the cure of pancreatic cancer. It’s a great cause, and her legacy lives on through it.”
VIP and general admission tickets for the fundraiser are available here.
