NASHVILLE, TN - We are still awaiting autopsy results in the shooting death of singer-songwriter Wayne Mills.
   
Right now, the medical examiner's office's report is incomplete.
   
Metro police say the 44-year old Nolensville man was shot in the head early Saturday morning at Pit and Barrel bar.
   
The owner, Chris Farrell, claims he shot Mills in self-defense after a fight over smoking in the bar.

Now, it's being called the first event to honor the memory of slain songwriter Wayne Mills.

Tuesday night, his friends and fellow musicians are jamming in tribute to him.

One by one, musicians take the stage at Winners in Midtown.
   
They're celebrating the music made by Mills and want you to stand behind it.

Organizers were unsure how many singer-songwriters would perform but the guitars by the door keep adding up.
   
A surprise from Write-Away media--  copies of Mills' CD's to be given for donations.
   
But music, not money, the focus at this event, keeping Mills' songs alive.

Mills' friends say they're still shocked by his death and want answers, though tonight is about celebrating.

Wednesday, two local restaurant owners are calling on the Nolensville community to raise money for Mills' wife and young son, Jack.

Craig and  Kelly Dever, who own Uncle Budd's, will be selling and frying more than 40 thanksgiving turkeys outside their closed Nolensville location from 8a-m  - noon for $50 each.
 
They'll also fry a turkey you bring for a$25 donation.
 
The couple says their son is in school with Jack and they just want to give back to a community that has been so generous to them.Winners Tribute to Wayne Mills - Erika Kurre
