This Year’s Concert Philanthropy

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Gift of Music concert will go to Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation. Established as a national identity in 2014, this charitable organization is dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats cancer while sparing the patient. For more information, go to the Scott Hamilton Cares Foundation.

The Dustin J. Wells Foundation The Gift Of Music Concert

Since its inception in 2008, the benefit concert has had the support of some of music’s greatest artists, including Ronnie Dunn, Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Peter Cetera, Peter Frampton, Ronnie Milsap, Gunnar Nelson, and many other generous and talented musicians who have donated their time and talent to support the efforts and causes of Dustin’s foundation.

Because of his strong love for music, donating to the W.O. Smith Music School is another way Dustin can be remembered, by sharing the “Gift of Music” with underprivileged children in the Nashville community. With the provision of free instruments and 50 cent lessons, these young lives can continue to be changed, grown and enriched in memory of Dustin.
