Vince Gill benefit concert raises more than $135,000 for TTU Nursing

Last night’s Vince Gill concert sponsored by First National Bank raised more than $135,000 for Tennessee Tech University’s School of Nursing building campaign. The performance, at TTU’s Hooper Eblen Center, featured rising Sony recording artist Susan Haynes as the opening act. And joining Gill as a member of the band was Dan Tyminski, best known for his song “Man of Constant Sorrow,” which he sang for the crowd. Gill performed many of his best-known songs and several new ones from recent albums. First National Bank employees served as volunteer ushers. Gill donated his performance, and First National Bank covered all associated costs to ensure that every dollar of every ticket sold went to the nursing campaign. Photo: TTU.
