Benefit Concert Held For Slain Musician

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dozens of musicians performed at Tin Roof Nashville Wednesday night during a benefit concert for slain musician Wayne Mills.

A crowd filled the bar on Demonbreun Street, and many of the people who attended used the event as a way to cope with Mills' death.

"I'm shaking. You can't see the chills. It's extremely hard because to the situation, but we do know we are here for the right reasons." said Wayland Bailey, who was a friend of Mills.

The musician was killed November 23rd inside a downtown Nashville bar. The owner of the Pit and Barrel said he shot Mills in self defense during an argument. Chris Ferrell has not been charged in connection with Mills' death.

Many of Mills' friends say they still have many unanswered questions about what happened early that Saturday morning.

Several people at the concert said they have heard the results of an autopsy that was performed on Mills' body.  They feel once those results are released, there will be justice for the musician.

"We have the faith the situation will come out, and the truth will come out, because there are so many friends that will back him to the hill," Bailey said.

Attorney David Raybin is representing Ferrell and told NewsChannel 5 Wednesday afternoon he had not seen Mills' autopsy report, and could not comment on it. He said his client is cooperating with the Metro Nashville Police investigation into the matter.
