Tuesday Morning Music Shuffle – Colorful Character Mix

Since today is World Suicide Prevention Day, it seems like a perfect opportunity to remind you that the supremely awesome Country Fried Rock is about to release Volume 2 of For Nuci’s Space. 

All proceeds from this album go to preventing musicians’ suicide, via the model program for community support, Nuci’s Space, in Georgia. By removing barriers to mental health care, substance abuse services, and primary care, Nuci’s Space works with other existing providers and networks to help musicians.
