TIME TO HELP SOMEBODY--Thu. Apr. 29 in Nashville
Albert Johnson is currently hospitalized because of his continuing struggle with leukemia. His condition has been precarious and devastating to both him and his family both emotionally and financially. While he is in a hospital in Chattanooga, they live almost 1 1/2 hours away. Thanks to his friends, their will be a benefit concert to make a difference, including an autographed guitar by the performers that will be auctioned off.
As of March 26th, SAM COOPER ("THE ORANGE MAN", "THE WATERING HOLE", "EAST NASHVILLE GIRLS") will be joined by hit writers GARY HANNAN ("TEQUILA MAKES HER CLOTHES FALL OFF" & "BACK WHEN I KNEW IT ALL" and host of "BEER FOR BREAKFAST" every Wednesday morning at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge down on lower Broadway), STAN WEBB ("I’M FROM THE COUNTRY", “One Of These Days But Not Tonight” and loads of other cuts) and southern rock star JIMMIE VAN ZANT ("Ray Ray's Juke Joint", "Ride The Lightning")...but don't think that's all! The special guest slots will be filled by include GUY GILCHRIST ("I DON’T NEED YOU", "VICTORIA'S SECRET" and, even cooler, the cartoonist for the world famous comic strip "Nancy"), GREG HIND ("THE LONESOME LOSER", "COOL CHANGE" and member of The Little River Band), the poet laureate of Music Row CHRIS GANTRY ("DREAMS OF AN EVERYDAY HOUSEWIFE", "THE ORANGE MAN" and countless cuts with and by legends), yet another great legendary writer TOMMY BARNES ("MAN TO MAN", "INDIAN OUTLAW" and tons of hit songs recorded by Hank Williams Jr., Little Texas, T.G Sheppard, etc...), the amazing breakout artist TRENT JEFFCOAT ("I'VE REACHED MINE", "THE BEER IS HERE"), the inimitable and totally one-of-a-kind MARY HARTMAN ("MY SKY AIN'T BLUE", "MISFIT COUNTRY GIRL") and one of the coolest and entertaining duos in Nashville, DON and KAREN MCNATT ("I WANNA SPEAK SPANISH", "RED UMBRELLA").
