NASHVILLE, TN (August 2, 2022) — Big Machine Label Group Founder/President/CEO Scott Borchetta and his wife Sandi Borchetta, who is BMLG’s Executive Vice President of Creative, announced today that they have issued a $150,000 grant to the Nashville-based Music Health Alliance, an organization that provides free healthcare advocacy and support to more than 18,000 music industry members across 49 states. The Borchetta’s contribution was issued through their Music Has Value fund that was established in 2015 to provide financial support to organizations which support those who make music, aspire to make music, and access and appreciate music. In 2020, the Music Has Value Fund provided fifteen $10,000 grants to music programs throughout the United States.
“For over 30 years, Scott and Sandi Borchetta have made a profound impact on Nashville and the music industry through their leadership, entrepreneurship, and philanthropic endeavors,” says Music Health Alliance Founder & CEO Tatum Allsep. “We are overwhelmed by their generous contribution today through their Music Has Value fund. This grant will greatly help us in our mission to Heal the Music.”
“Access to healthcare is something every human deserves and the work that Music Health Alliance does to help those working in music gain access to medicine, mental health resources or even COVID-19 relief, is nothing short of heroic,” says Scott and Sandi Borchetta. “In order for those working in the music business to create and produce their best work, they must be healthy and well. We are proud to know that this Music Has Value grant will provide healthcare to so many people in our music community.”
The Borchettas’ announcement today arrives days before the second annual Big Machine Music City Grand Prix takes over downtown Nashville. The leading entertainment and spirits company became the title sponsor of the IndyCar race last summer which drew in over 110,000 spectators to Music City. The three-day event is a highlight for both race and music fans alike. Big Machine superstars like Tim McGraw, Carly Pearce, Brantley Gilbert, and Midland will all perform throughout the weekend.
