Bryan White, Deborah Allen topline law enforcement awareness concert

Event will be held May 9th in Nashville

May is officially National Law Enforcement Appreciation Month, and country music artists Bryan White, Deborah Allen, Halfway to Hazard, Janie Fricke, Jeannie Seely, Keith Anderson, and Tommy Roe are scheduled to take the Nashville Palace stage to help raise money and awareness for Law Enforcement Assistance Partnership (LEAP). The event dubbed as Blue Lights & Country Nights will take place on May 9th with more artists to be announced.

Tickets are $40 for general admission, $50 for reserved seating, and VIP tables are available for the special event by calling 615-587-1023 or online via Outhouse Tickets.

“We are thrilled to be benefitting from this event again, this year,” says Diane Wilhoit, President of LEAP. “Last year, country music artists really helped support all of law enforcement with their generosity in both performances and within the media. We are so looking forward to what 2023 will bring and how we can continue to show the men and women in blue how much they are appreciated.”

The event last year was a memorial for Jeff Carson, a 90’s country artist who retired to become a law enforcement officer and worked for the Franklin Police Department just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. Raising over $80,000 the organization was able to provide special air contraptions to help officers stay cool during the height of the summer heat. In recognition of Carson continued support of LEAP, Blue Lights & Country Nights was born.

Donations to LEAP can be made at with each donor of $25 or more receiving the final recordings of ACM award winner Jeff Carson.
