On Wednesday, Dec. 4, the Wayne Mills Memorial Concert and Benefit will be held at the Tin Roof in Nashville. Alabama native, Wayne Mills, passed away due to injuries from gunshot wounds. The benefit will help his family that he left behind, including his young son, Jack. The benefit will start at 7:50 p.m. central time with a welcome and will continue until 2:00 a.m.
The show will also be aired live online at http://waynemills.onssl.tv/. A link will be available online to make a donation as well.
