Of the event, Fiona Prine shares, “We are so excited to invite you, our beloved community—both artists and fans alike—to this long-anticipated fall week in Nashville. A celebration and tribute to John feels so overdue yet is happening right on time. Our amazing team have worked tirelessly, making sure everyone feels welcome to participate in this memorable and unique experience. Thank you for being a part of it. Your support for me and my family has meant the world and we look forward to spending time with everyone in October. Hello in There; I know John will be with us in spirit all weeklong.”
All proceeds from the concerts and live streams will benefit The Hello In There Foundation. Established by the Prine family to honor John’s memory, the work of the 501c3 is inspired and guided by John’s simple song title, “Hello In There,” aims to identify and collaborate with individuals and communities where people are marginalized, discriminated against or, for any reason, are otherwise forgotten. Among this year’s grantees are the  Keep A Breast Foundation’s Give Back Grant and Musicians On Call.
The Prine family and The Hello In There Foundation would like to thank their partners and sponsors—Downtown Music, Truist, BMI, Wasserman, NS2 and the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp—for their generous support of “You Got Gold.” Without your contributions, this event would not be possible.
