A Recap of The Concert For Love and Acceptance

“It matters not who you love, where you love, why you love, when you love, or how you love. It matters only that you love.” – John Lennon

Last week, Ty Herndon’s Foundation For Love and Acceptance hosted its annual concert to support LGBTQ youth and celebrate #pridemonth with allies and fans at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. 

The lineup was exceptional, with incredible performances from Chapel Hart, Maddie & Tae, Terri Clark, Billy Gilman, and many more.

Our Ambassador and Artist, Auti, made an entrance and did a fantastic job showcasing her vocals and new music. (Her voice is just as beautiful live, FYI.)

Ty is a natural at hosting and performing. His energy and love are contagious. We are incredibly proud of both Ambassadors and Artists on PMM.

Pivotal Moments Media is proud to sponsor such a valuable event that provides powerful life-saving messages.

Auti Shares the Inspiration Behind Her Song for Suicide Prevention Week on Hollywood Life

Not only does Auti’s voice capture the attention of her fans and listeners, but it also spreads hope and awareness to those affected by suicide. In her “4 Years” music video, which premiered on HollywoodLife, Auti displays a heartfelt tribute to her friend, Luke. Auti shares the inspiration for her song and how she navigates the grief of losing someone to suicide with Jason Brown. 

Finding purpose in her pain  

As a mental health advocate, Auti demonstrates her support for those struggling in her lyrics. Suicide grief is devastating and complicated. Auti unpacks the conflicting emotions and pain she felt through heartfelt lyrics and a beautiful piano melody. 

“Through my music, I acknowledge the baggage that so many of us carry around and try to avoid – like a heavyweight.”, shares Auti. 

Creating a Message

This song is also a message to those struggling with the unanswered questions that come with losing someone to suicide. Many underestimate the number of people dramatically affected by suicide. Rather than focusing on what she lost, Auti leans into the love and light she shared with her dear friend. 

“Something that many of us deal with when we lose someone to suicide is the nagging question of if we could have done something to change their mind or prevented it, I believe it’s best to remind yourself of the love and light you shared while they were still here, and the meaning their life held doesn’t have to stop after they are gone. You can use that loss to save others.”

Auti is a remarkable young artist with a story that pulls your heartstrings. The loyalty to her friend and desire to make sense of her pain resulted in “4 Years”. If you or someone in your life is struggling, please call the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988.

LeAnn Rimes Delves Into Mental Health In Ty Herndon's Debut Podcast Episode

Country music and mental health. Two worlds collide to create conversations around the struggles and successes in their mental fitness journeys. 

Pivotal Moments Media ambassador and Pivotal Records artist, Ty Herndon, is featured in this article by iHeartCountry Radio to discuss Soundboard – a podcast on our Resilience channel. The series mirrors the themes of Herndon’s new album, JACOB. 

“This podcast is all about using the power each of us has to turn up the positive voices in our heads and turn down those negative thoughts that creep in and sow doubt and despair. I’m looking forward to speaking with some of my amazing fellow artists in music and entertainment about how they stay mentally fit amid the chaos of all that life throws at them personally and professionally.”

They highlight the launch of the series with guest and country music icon LeAnn Rimes and the bond they share as musicians and friends. 

“… as these two longtime friends recall their first times performing together, complications in LeAnn’s career as a young star, details about their personal mental fitness journeys reflected in their new music, and more.” 

The beauty of this podcast series is the vulnerability component serves as a gentle reminder that mental health does not discriminate. High-profile, famous, successful people share the same mental health struggles as someone who works a corporate job. Tune in to hear the rest of this episode on the Resilience channel, powered by Pivotal Moments Media.

Ty Herndon Returns to Tamron Hall Show to Discuss Road to Healing and Future Plans

Pivotal Records artist and Pivotal Moments ambassador Ty Herndon returned to the Tamron Hall Show to discuss the mental fitness journey that has led him to be the entertainer and person he is today. 

Defying the odds

Ty is the purest example of defying the odds. He never let his uphill battle with addiction reign victorious, despite finding himself in a dark place. Ty shares with Tamron how he prayed so long for an answer to his crippling pain that he went numb. This pain does not discriminate against age, talent, or fame. He was 59 when he realized his mental health was headed south. 


The smile behind the pain

Tamron plays a clip of a seemingly collected and poised Ty Herndon from a past interview on her show. Little did everyone know- it was during his most challenging time. His pain was unknown to everyone in his life, which is the takeaway Ty leaves us. Lean into those conversations and check on your loved ones; being heard can make all the difference. 

People suffering may not appear to be in pain on the exterior; Ty is an excellent example. As an entertainer, putting on a great show and making the audience feel alive is second nature.


Finding his purpose

Ty’s faith helped guide him back to a life of purpose. He explains to Tamron the biblical story behind the album name, JACOB, and what it represents in his life and career. Subscribe to the Resilience podcast and tune in to the Soundboard series hosted by Ty Herndon to hear more great conversations with other music industry professionals.

Auti Premieres “4 Years” Music Video in PEOPLE Exclusive

Pivotal Moments Media ambassador and Pivotal Records artist, Auti, shares the inspiration and meaning behind her song, “4 Years” in this PEOPLE exclusive.

A story of love and loss. 

The music video displays an ethereal presence that carries the lyrics seamlessly. In the interview, Auti details that “[The song] was something that I wrote about my friend Luke to acknowledge that suicide is real and does affect everyone involved, but it was also mostly written as a message to him.”. There is an emptiness only people who have experienced a similar loss can relate to; Auti uses her platform to connect with her fans that may feel alone in their journey to healing.

As photos from Luke’s life shine around her, she plays the piano, and her beautiful voice tells the tragic story weighing on her heart. Director Jeremy Ryan and creative director Chrissy Yoder do a phenomenal job of encapsulating the emotions and love for her friend. This song and video are a testament to their friendship and provide a sense of peace, new beginnings, and closure.

The final chapter.

“There is so much love and light to be found in life, and it may take some searching, but it is out there.”

Pivotal Moments Media and Pivotal Records are honored to have you on the team, Auti.

If you or someone you love is experiencing a mental health crisis, Call or Text 988.
