PEDIGREE Foundation a philanthropic organization that helps dogs find their forever homes, will host “The Love of Dogs” Benefit Concert on Wednesday, May 17th at 6:00pm at Marathon Music Works (1402 Clinton St, Nashville, TN 37203).
The concert event will hosted by syndicated country radio personality Shawn Parr and will include a cocktail reception, dinner, and exciting live/silent auction that will be followed by a Special Musical Performance by Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives – all to benefit PEDIGREE Foundation and its shelter and rescue grants program.
Marty Stuart is a Country Music Hall of Famer, five-time Grammy-winner, and AMA Lifetime Achievement honoree. Stuart will release his new album, Altitude, just two days after the event on May 19th via Snakefarm. This is his first new album in more than six years. Late last year, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives were inducted
into the Musicians Hall of Fame and he celebrated his 50th year in Nashville and 30th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member.
PEDIGREE Foundation’s goal is to support shelter and rescue organizations across the nation that are focused on increasing dog adoption, primarily through fostering, matching, behavior and transport programs, as well as disaster relief to support impacted shelter communities during a natural disaster.
“We are thrilled to have Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives join us for our benefit concert celebrating our 15 years of supporting the incredible work of these shelters and rescues across the country,” said Deb Fair, Executive Director of PEDIGREE Foundation. “This event raises much-needed funds for our annual grant budget and we cannot do it alone. We are thankful to our generous sponsors, donors, and the community for supporting the work we do. We hope they’ll join us on May 17th as well.”

About PEDIGREE Foundation
We believe every dog deserve a loving, forever home. PEDIGREE Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to help end pet homelessness. Nearly 3.1 million dogs end up in shelters and rescues every year, and nearly half never find a home. The foundation was established in 2008 by Mars Petcare, maker of PEDIGREE® food for dogs, to help increase dog adoption rates. We’ve awarded more than 6,100 grants and $11.6 million to U.S. shelters and rescues that help dogs in need. In 2022, we introduced our first program expansion outside the U.S. with the launch of our Canadian grant program, providing $100k CAD to local shelters and rescues in need across Canada. At PEDIGREE Foundation, we’re working toward a day when all dogs are safe, secure, cared for, fed well and loved. See how you can help at www.PedigreeFoundation.org.
About Marty Stuart
Country Music Hall of Famer, five-time Grammy-winner, and AMA Lifetime Achievement honoree Marty Stuart picks up where he left off on Altitude, his first new album in six years, exploring a cosmic country landscape populated by dreamers and drifters, misfits and angels, honky-tonk heroes and lonesome lovers. There’s a desert flare to the music here, a sweeping, spacious feel that conjures up wide-open horizons and endless stretches of two-lane highway, and the production is raw and cinematic to match, tipping its cap both to Bakersfield and Laurel Canyon as it balances jangle and twang in equal measure. While it would be easy for an artist as accomplished as Stuart to rest on his laurels, Altitude instead showcases the work of a searcher with an insatiable appetite for growth and reflection, one whose ambition, much like his keen wit and rich imagination, only seems to grow with each and every release.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, MS, Stuart got his start in bluegrass legend Lester Flatts’ band at the tender age of thirteen, and by twenty-one, he was working in the studio and on the road with Johnny Cash. Though Stuart built his early reputation backing up royalty, it wasn’t long before Nashville recognized him as a star in his own right, and over the course of forty-plus years as a solo artist, he would go on to release more than twenty major label albums, scoring platinum sales, hit singles, and just about every honor the industry could bestow along the way.
