The Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks’ Trust For Life and their partner, the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates, are hosting the first-ever live concert in their ongoing effort to grow the Organ Donor Registry.

To educate and help grow the Organ Donor Registry, both organizations have teamed up with several nationally-recognized and local musical artists to highlight the continuing efforts to save lives through the universal language – and power – of music with a live virtual concert on Saturday, October 10, 2020. The lineup of performers includes: Lee Brice; Jolivia: Josh Logan and Olivia Henken; William Matheny; Hello June; Laid Back Country Picker; Chelsea Nolan; Choc Four Wheelers; Flat Tracker; Josh Brown and the Hard Livin’ Legends; The Carpenter Ants; Josh Martin; Big Rock and the Candy Ass Mountain Boys; and Corduroy Brown, along with special appearances by John Ellison and Tiffany Lopez.
