Fleetwood Mac will close the evening in grand fashion.

Last year Musicares honored and celebrated Tom Petty with the Person of the Year award. Sadly, Petty would pass away later in the year, but his words still vibrate through the universe.

“And that’s all I want to be, a good man to ride the river with, and I’m going to keep riding the river.” – Tom Petty

The charity event for Musicares works with musicians to help provide assistance during hardships. For more on this topic browse over their main website.
