OPERATION HIGH GROUND: We're Ready to Help You!

Nashville and its surrounding communities were unexpectedly struck by a major disaster on Saturday May 1st. Many in this music community experienced significant loss – homes, cars, equipment, and rehearsal space – ruined by the unprecedented flooding in several communities. It has been estimated that only a fraction of those who experienced significant loss had adequate flood insurance to cover their damages.
Guitar Center, GC Pro, and MusiCares understand the effects of this disaster in a unique way and are poised and ready to help the Nashville music community get through this crisis. Operation High Ground – Nashville Flood Relief is designed to directly assist music people affected by the Middle Tennessee Floods.
