We are incredibly saddened to share the news that our longtime supporter, friend and former board member Bill Hearn lost his battle with cancer this past weekend. A highly respected music industry executive who led the Nashville-based Capitol Christian Music Group (CCMG) as its Chairman & CEO, Bill was a beloved and very important part of our Foundation for many years and we will feel his loss for years to come.
Among his numerous accomplishments, Bill received the T.J. Martell Foundation’s Frances Preston Lifetime Music Industry Achievement Award at our Nashville Honors Gala in 2015 for his incredible contribution to the music industry. Bill was a past National Chairman, National Board and Executive Committee Member of the T.J. Martell Foundation, and was involved in many other charities through the generosity of the Hearn Family Charitable Foundation.
