#MartinGoesToHarvey is a fundraising movement started by Holly Tucker, Texas Country Music artist. In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey devastated thousands of people and flooded them out of their homes and everyday lives. In the aftermath, the state of Texas and the rest of the nation came through in many big ways, offering help financially, physically, and by donation.
Around this same time, Holly was given a brand new Martin guitar from a Facebook friend who told her that he just wanted to help with the hurricane efforts any way he could. He asked her for no credit, but just that she take her platform, sign the guitar herself, and use it somehow to raise money for hurricane relief funds. Holly loved the idea but wanted to make an even bigger impact. Holly had the idea to gather as many signatures as she could from her fellow artists who, like her, care so deeply for their fellow Texans. So Holly carried this gorgeous Martin with her on her independent Texas regional tour for her new album, Steel. Everywhere she went, so did the Martin.
In three months, Holly was able to gather over 25 autographs on the Martin, including signatures from Restless Heart, Kevin Fowler, Parker McCollum, Koe Wetzel, Bri Bagwell, Chad Prather, Zane Williams, Sam Riggs, and many more. Photos for authenticity were taken of all of the artists while they were signing the guitar.
We invite you to share and take part in this true Texas-inspired effort to let our neighbors in the flood and hurricane ravaged areas near Houston, RockPort, Corpus and more know that we haven't forgotten them.
