Saturday night KICK-FM is airing a Country special called "A Salute to the Songwriters"

97.9 KICK-FM is thrilled to be a part of this nationwide country music special called "A Salute to the Songwriters" it will be on our airwaves on Saturday, May 16th starting at 7 pm and will go all the way until 10 pm, three hours of commercial free programming all for a great cause. The show which will be hosted Luke Bryan among others over the course of the three hours will feature performances by Rhett Atkins, Jessie Alexander, Clint Daniels, and so many more!

But this three hours of special programming is all to help raise money for a very important cause in the world of Country Music, out of work songwriters.The "A Salute to the Songwriters" special will be collecting donations for the MusiCares COVID-19 relief fund. So many of these young up and coming songwriters are completely out of work during this time, so many of them rely on side jobs like playing gigs, waiting tables, bar tending, and so many other jobs that have been shut down since the nationwide quarantine due to the coronavirus.
