August 11, 2021 (Nashville, TN) Music industry leaders have come together to launch an artist giveback initiative, Hometown Hero led by Innovo Management, LLC. The pandemic hit artists in the music industry particularly hard and many artists have found it challenging to get their music from writing room to release.
