On Tuesday 6/2, many in the music industry went silent on social media for #BlackoutTuesday in an effort to encourage meaningful conversations, listening, and introspection following the death of George Floyd and continued injustices faced by people of color in America. New Country 105.1 KNCI also participated in #BlackoutTuesday.
Breaking the silence and allowing room for personal reflection is key to meaningful change in our country, that evening at 9:00pm PT we held a virtual “Be The Light” candlelight vigil on Facebook live. We were also joined by Sacramento country artist Nate Smith who performed live.
