Pandora is hosting an intimate evening of live music featuring performances by Martina McBride, Cassadee Pope, and RaeLynn celebrating females in country music. The concert is free to Pandora listeners who RSVP in advance. The event will benefit the T.J. Martell Foundation and breast cancer research.
The event will be held Wednesday, October 14th at The Altman Building at 135 W. 18th Street New York, NY 10011 and is a 21 and older event.
“Women are such a rich part of country music’s history and its future and I’m so happy that Pandora created this event to showcase that,” Martina McBride told Rolling Stone Country. “I know it will be a great night of music and storytelling and I love that it supports women’s breast cancer research through the T.J. Martell Foundation.”
“The scale of Pandora is the perfect way to amplify the power of women in country music in a year where some have questioned it,” says Pandora’s Lars Murray. “Listeners and fans have spoken; these women have over 370 million spins on Pandora.”
“Women are such a rich part of country music’s history and its future!”
In the past year, Pandora has placed itself at the forefront of artist and brand partnerships due in part to its thoughtfully curated events with some of the best and brightest in music including: Jack White, Fall out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Miguel, Wyclef Jean, Earlsweatshirt, Steve Aoki, Jason Derulo, Chromeo, Celine Dion, Trey Songz, Diplo, Charli XCX, Neko Case, Bleachers, Tegan & Sara, Aloe Blacc, Cold War Kids, Estelle, J Balvin, The Hold Stead, Iggy Azalea and more. Additionally, the 2015 Pandora Discovery Den during the SXSW Music Festival featured performances by 36 artists across various genres over four days.
Pandora has the unique ability to determine which artists will resonate best with local listeners by analyzing musical preferences, stations created, and thumbed-up songs. Invitations to events are then extended to Pandora listeners who have demonstrated an affinity for the identified artists.
