I want to reach out to all of my friends that support local and underground music like Cody Jinks and the like. You go out and spend thousands supporting them, but sometimes we need to get out and support the Legends of Country that paved the way for them to play arenas.

There are quite a few of these Traditional Country package shows coming to the Nashville area during and after CMA Fest, and I wanted to touch upon some of these shows and what you can expect to see. I’m going to share some memories of some of the people involved with this and how I feel about them.

One weekend in Kansas City Mo, I was given the opportunity to host a stage for the festival Westport Roots Festival. Co headlining this amazing bill was none other than Moe Bandy! We got to have an interview on the phone, and I got to tell him just how much I love him. He let me pester him with a billion questions about producers and other writers like Whitey Schaffer and such.

Hey let’s talk about Country Legend Lacy J. Dalton. She recently released a brand new album called ‘Listen To The Wind”. The album contains a collection of her older hits re done, and it has one brand new song too. Of course her 1982 hit called 16th Avenue is on there which was written by Thom Schuyler, and it was originally on the album Blue Eyed Blues. She also has some songs that benefit wild horse preservation on this album.

Now here is a new name that you defiantly need to check out, and that is Stephanie Quayle! Right now I am listening to her 2024 album called “On The Edge: Forgiven”. See, when I study package deal shows like this one I find some truly gifted music, and this album shows no holding back in showing off exactly where she came from…Country.

And of course we have his Tness! One of the two newest member of the Opry, and one of Country Music’s greatest legends that are left with us. His timeless signature vocals and stage presence will surely become a mainstay at the Opry for many years to come.

“To say that Kelly and I are honored to host Country For A Cause again is an understatement,” shares Sheppard. “It truly amazes us that this year’s group of artists is the most diversified we have ever had the pleasure of hosting. We have everything from country, bluegrass, Americana, and much more in between. There will be legends and newcomers… and maybe a couple of surprises along the way. This is going to be an incredible show.”

“Kicking off what we have officially dubbed the “unofficial” kick-off to CMA Fan Fest, we are excited to bring our country music fans and friends what is perhaps our biggest show to date – celebrating our tenth anniversary of Country For A Cause,” confides board member Roxane Atwood. “The talent on this show is amazing! We have multiple Grammy Award winners performing for our event, as well as CMA winners, ACM Award winners, IBMA Award winners, artists representing over 50 #1 hits, and some of the best entertainers in the business, having sung before sold-out stadiums, Super Bowls and US Presidents. The best part about this concert is that 100% of these music icons volunteer their time for the children, with 100% of the money raised by our show going to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Thousands of dollars are raised every year for the children because of the hard work of our volunteers, artists, musicians, sound crew, 3rd & Lindsley’s spectacular listening room environment, and our sponsor, Gus Arrendale, and Springer Mountain Farms Chicken. It takes a village to produce a show like this, and we have the best!”

“Country for a Cause is one of my favorite annual events,” said Meredith “Mamie” Shepherd, Senior Program Manager for Seacrest Studios at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. “We are so fortunate to have T.G. Sheppard and Kelly Lang as wonderful hosts and supporters of our patients and families. Huge thanks to the entire team that puts on such a wonderful night of music to make a difference for the children who rely on us for care.”
