To kick off CMA week, some of the biggest songwriters in country music joined together to benefit the Middle TN Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for the 1st Annual Pickin' for Prevention Event! The event was a huge success, with an amazing turn out!
With special performances by Randy Owen and Chris Young, it was definitely a one of a kind show. Songwriters included Dallas Davidson, Anthony Smith, Dave Turnbull, Allen Shamblin, Brian White, Frank Myers, Kylie Sackley, Rob Hatch and Dan Couch. The hottest new duo, Two Story Road, opened the night with their new music. Chris Young joined in the "TEXT to Donate" Program while performing on stage. Allen Shamblin (co-writer to the song "Why" by Rascal Flatts) performed this song about losing someone to suicide.
We were so excited to raise a ton of awareness for AFSP and raise additional funds for the chapter to support research and educational programs. Thank you to Wildhorse Saloon, WSIX, all the artists and EVERYONE else involved to make this happen!
