Tin Roof benefit honors slain country music singer

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Singers and songwriters gathered at Tin Roof in Nashville to honor a country music performer killed at a bar.

Wednesday night's concert paid tribute to Wayne Mills who was gunned down at Pit and Barrel on November 23.

The preliminary investigation revealed Mills was smoking a cigarette in a non-smoking area of the bar, upsetting the bar's owner, Chris Ferrell.

Ferrell and Mills allegedly began to argue prior to the shooting.

Ferrell, who has a valid handgun carry permit, told police he shot Mills in self defense.  

All of the proceeds of Wednesday night's event will be given to Mills' wife and young son.

Mills will be laid to rest in a private burial service on Sunday in Alabama.
