Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights Tour is wrapping up and Luke is auctioning off two tickets to the remaining show of your choice, along with a meet-and-greet that also includes Little Big Town. Proceeds go to help Musicians on Call, a nonprofit that offers patients encouragement by bringing the music to their bedsides.  You can bid on the prize at CharityBuzz, and you can choose from October 20th in Houston, the 22nd in Dallas, or his final show of the run at Detroit’s Ford Field. The auction wraps up on October 11.

Eric Church and Lee Ann Womack are set to headline the second annual BMI Maui Songwriters Festival December 1-3.  Songwriters Scotty Emerick and Liz Rose will join Robert Earl Keen, and up-and-coming Warner Nashville artist Aubrie Sellers, who happens to be Lee Ann’s daughter.  The three-day getaway promises plenty of in-the-round acoustic song-swaps at choice venues around the isle. You can find out more at MauiSongwritersFestival.com.

Jon Pardi is helping out the dance hall that inspired him to write “Head Over Boots.”  The hall is called Twin Sisters and it’s located in Blanco, Texas.  The roof is so bad on the 137-year-old building that it would have to close if it doesn’t get repaired.  So Jon is selling a special teeshirt now through October 13th with all the proceeds going to help restore Twin Sisters’ roof. You can order yours online now at teespring.com!
