Neil Portnow, president and CEO of The Recording Academy and MusiCares, sent the following letter on May 7 announcing the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund:

Dear Friends,

By now we have all seen the devastating and profoundly life-altering effects of the recent and unexpected floods that hit Nashville and its surrounding areas. Many in this music community have experienced significant losses, and many of the city's iconic music landmarks have suffered irreparable damage. It's times like these when we must come together and help those who need it most. In light of these circumstances, the Recording Academy and its MusiCares Foundation, which provides a safety net of critical services for music people in crisis, have established the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund.

Emergency assistance already has begun, and 100 percent of every dollar raised will be immediately distributed to help those in the Nashville music community that are victims of the floods. Donations to MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief may be made at www.musicares.com/NashvilleFloodRelief. MusiCares' initial assistance will provide funds for food and clothing, gasoline and transportation, clean-up efforts, relocation costs, medicine, and other critical supplies. To apply for assistance, please contact the South Regional office at 615/327-0050 or toll free at 877/626-2748. A list of resources for flood victims is also available at the above link.

I encourage you to help in any way you can, and let's all keep our friends who have been affected by this tragic event in our thoughts.

Warm regards,

Neil Portnow
President/CEO
The Recording Academy and MusiCares
