We don't post a lot of press releases verbatim here, but this is for an important cause... rebuilding Kentucky after the recent devastating tornado. And if you can't donate money, you can help out by simply streaming Justin Wells' excellent new cover of "Blue Moon of Kentucky!"
This year has been tough for everyone, but especially those who have been affected by natural disasters outside of their control. On December 10, 2021, Western Kentucky was hit by a tornado that caused catastrophic damage and killed 77 people and counting. Justin immediately started brainstorming ways to help the families who were directly affected. On December 14th, he went into the studio and recorded an emotional rendition of Bill Monroe’s classic, Blue Moon of Kentucky. We were able to turn the song around in 24 hours and release it exactly two weeks after recording. The point of recording and releasing the song is not about furthering Justin’s career, or chasing a viral moment, but is about creating hope for those who feel like all is lost. This song is very special to Justin as the people of Kentucky have given him and his family so much. Our pledge is to give 100% of streaming revenue to United Way of Kentucky’s Tornado Fund, with a portion immediately going to the Muhlenberg Music Mission.
