A Portion of proceeds from this lovely event benefited "Musicians On Call", a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities across the country. By delivering live, in-room performances to patients undergoing treatment, or unable to leave their beds, Musicians On Call adds a dose of joy to life in healthcare facilities. Since 1999, their volunteer musicians have performed for nearly half a million patients and their families. With your help, they can do even more in the years to come!
"The Young Fables", were first to take the stage, the duo is comprised of Laurel Wright and Wesley Lunsford which were winners of the NASH Next 2016 Nashville finals recently.
The duo released an album earlier this year entitled "Two", Laurel and Wes performed many of the songs from the album during their set including "Two", "Better Hand" and "Completely".
The Young Fables are personal friends, and one of my favorite country music acts, I've been very blessed to see them live on several occasions, Laurels lead vocals and Wes' vocals/harmony as both soulful and moving, Wes' guitar licks are effortless and right on point. Look for a music video from the duo in the next month or so, I definitely recommend you check out their music and video's. You can check out their official website here:
Next to take the stage was "Colin Elmore & the Danville Train" who recently got signed to Sony Music Nashville. Colin and the band put on an awesome show, Colin's passion for music really showed throughout the set with his electric voice and facial expressions. He started writing songs at the young age of 16, and really showcased those skills during the 30 minute set, including his remarkable skills as a songwriter.
Some on the songs performed included "Hail Mary", "Fireworks", "Hurricane" and personal favorite "Come Back Kid". Each song had a story behind it, I was quite entertained and so were the rest of the crowd. I would definitely recommend you check out "Colin Elmore & the Danville Train" online, and go see them live. Their official website is: http://www.colinelmore.com/
The last act to take the stage was headlining artist "Jessie James Decker" who is no stranger to country music fans.
Jessie who was born in Vicenza, Italy moved to Georgia at the age of 15 and started writing songs, while paying regular visits to Nashville.
In 2009, Jessie released her debut album featuring the hit single “Wanted."
In 2013, Jessie married professional football star Eric Decker, and the couple became the stars of a reality TV series titled, "Eric & Jessie: Game On."
She released her latest single, "Lights Down Low," and on the same day of it's release, the single hit #1 on iTunes Country Chart!! Congrats Jessie James!!
Jessie and the band performed "Lights Down Low" during her set, much to roars of the sold out crowd. Some of the other songs sung were "Boys In The Summer," "Shoot Out the Lights," and "Do You." One of the highlights of the show was when Jessie brought her husband Eric Decker (American football wide receiver for the New York Jets) and sang her song "All Filled Up," dedicated to Eric. The crowd went wild at the sight of the two stars together on stage.
It was a fantastic show from start to finish. Jessie even had a bunch of girls brought up on stage with her to sing music icon Shania Twain's "Man I Feel Like A Woman," which Decker mentioned she usually included in her shows.
