What Is the Nashville Music Market?

The Backstage Auction presented by SOLID’s Music Market, previously known as the Music Row Yard Sale, offers fans the chance to buy music, merchandise and industry-exclusive items from their favorite artists. The Music Market, present at various events in the Nashville community throughout the year along with being available online as an auction, is a staple for country music fans looking for exclusive and rare items/experiences. Thanks in part to our digital partners, our music community, and the foundations we have moving forward, the auction is now crossing genres and offering items year-round.

Where Does the Money Go?

Money raised from each event within the 2018 year of the Nashville Music Market & Auction will go towards supporting the efforts of SOLID and is essential to curating year long experiences for our members and these funds allow us to create opportunities to network with our peers in the industry as well as the chance to volunteer at events that give back to our community. Each year a portion of the proceeds go to a local charity of choice and will benefit the local chapters of MusiCares and the CMA Foundation. In 2016 & 2017, the funds raised by the Music Market & Auction enabled our organization to give over $10,000 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Porter's Call and Notes for Notes.
