Nashville Musicians Raise Funds For Waffle House Shooting Victims

274 0


NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) – Nashville’s music community is raising funds in support of the victims of the shooting that took place at a Tennessee Waffle House earlier this week.

The campaign, which is being launched by civilian hero, James Shaw Jr., the man who stopped the gunman, country singer Brantley Gilbert, and Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional, will see a number of musicians selling a T-shirt that features the words “I Believe In Heroism” and an image of Shaw’s injured hand (Shaw suffered burns when he grabbed the gun away from suspect Travis Reinking) at their upcoming May shows.

Of Shaw’s heroism, Gilbert said: “I know he says he’s not a hero and he was just trying to protect himself, but anytime you stand up in a situation like that, my belief is you’ve got hero in you.”

Proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will benefit both Shaw and the other victims of the attack.
