The Onsite Foundation honored Live Nation’s President of Country Music Touring Brian O’Connell with their Inspiration Award at their annual INSPIRE event on Oct. 23. 

The special evening celebrated O’Connell and his team’s persistent dedication and promise to help the victims and families affected by the 2017 Las Vegas shooting. 

Country music guests gave heartfelt speeches including Maren Morris, Tyler and Hayley Hubbard, Big & Rich, Rory Feek, Onsite’s CEO Miles Adcox, and more. Hosted at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works, the benefit also witnessed performances by Jason Aldean and Big & Rich. 

The Onsite Foundation provides mental health resources and funding to those who have experienced mass tragedies, stress, abuse, trauma, mental-health, and relationship issues. The Foundation aids refugees, veterans, first responders, creatives, and every day citizens struggling with mental health issues. 

Proceeds from the benefit concert will directly help those who lost loved ones from the Route 91 shooting, in addition to the 100% Scholarship trauma and grief intensive program that The Foundation created as well. “An event like last night helps fund a mission beyond our wildest dreams,” said Miles Adcox, CEO of The Onsite Foundation in a statement. “Every dollar raised will go to a family member who suffered a loss as a result of the tragedy in Las Vegas last year, allowing them a fully paid scholarship to come spend a week at Onsite. It has been amazing to get to work with Brian who came to us and said, ‘help me, help them,’ and through programs like this we can.” 

“The INSPIRE award is the person sitting next to you, we need to inspire each other,” stated Brian O’Connell in a statement. “We can make our community, and everyone we touch that much better, by just humanizing mental health. I am honored to accept this award on behalf of everyone who’s been touched by mental illness or touched by a loss.”
