Nashville Songwriters Come Together for Benefit on Friday: Music City + Bull City

Nashville SongwritersThe Nashville Songwriters at the DPAC, presented by the Loud Lemon Foundation and sponsored in part by WRAL-TV/Capitol Broadcasting, will take place this Friday, April 27, 2018.  Eight award-nominated and winning songwriters behind country music’s biggest hits will perform live, sharing their stories behind their songs.  The event is a benefit for several Triangle non-profits including Kidznotes, North Carolina Boy’s Academy and Voyager Academy Friends of the Arts (VAFOA).

Corp VP of Special Projects George Habel has been a driving force behind CBC’s support of the project.

“It’s a unique event, sort of like Behind the Music meets Unplugged,” he explained.  “The writers sit in a semi-circle on stage, share the story behind each song and give a solo performance…with a little help from their friends. It’s like you’ve been invited into the studio.”

Event coordinator and songwriter Jeff Outlaw talked about the upcoming program with WRAL-TV Anchor Bill Leslie on a recent WRAL Noon News:

“Capitol Broadcasting Co. came on board because a portion of the proceeds will benefit Kidznotes, the nonprofit that engages youth with orchestra, band and choir,” said Habel.  “I really liked the idea of putting the popularity of country music to work in that space.”
