Lindsay Ell pledges support to Donate My Wage

ABC/Image Group LAIn correlation with #BlackoutTuesday, members of the music industry have launched DonateMyWage.org to support black organizations working toward racial justice. 

Launched Tuesday morning, the site prompts users to type in their hour or salaried pay to be calculated into a total one-day wage that can then be donated to a series of organizations working to end racism and injustice in America.

Fifteen organizations are available for users to donate to, including the Nashville chapter of Black Lives Matter and Gideon's Army, a Nashville-based nonprofit that creates restorative justice programs with the goal of "dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline through social activism by children in the prison pipeline, their families, and their community," Gideon's Army states.  

Other organizations are the Equal Justice Initiative that works to end mass incarceration across the country; Color of Change, described as a "racial justice movement" that designs campaigns aimed to end the practices that suppress the Black community; and the National Urban League, a 110-year-old organization that works to "provide economic empowerment, educational opportunities and the guarantee of civil rights for the underserved in America," as stated on their website.

Lindsay Ell has pledged her support for the initiative on Instagram alongside the statement, "Donate your wage for a day because Black Lives Matter and lasting change requires the support."

Lindsay is one of many of her country music peers participating in #BlackoutTuesday, a music industry-wide initiative that stands in support of Black Lives Matter.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out Friday

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
