Local singer songwriters to play Charlie Daniels Park stage
Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Eleven local singers and songwriters will perform at Charlie Daniels Park Stage Saturday Sept. 7 from 3:30 until 7:15 p.m.  

The event is free, so bring a lawn chair, blanket, some snacks, sit back and relax to great music by the people that write it and live here.  This is the fourth installment of our First Annual Summer of Music, Theatre and Arts in Charlie Daniels Park. The Arts Alliance of Middle Tennessee, The City of Mt. Juliet Parks and Recreation Department and The Chamber of Commerce, are proud to present this series of performances during the warm weather months on the Charlie Daniels Stage.

“For September we wanted to showcase some of own local talent who sing and write songs”, says Jeff Gannon of State Farm Insurance.  “There is a lot of great musical talent in Wilson County and the Greater Nashville Area and this event is a great opportunity for everyone.”  

Pam Barton with Rutland Place adds that, “It is amazing that many of our friends and neighbors work in the music industry here in Nashville and we seldom get to hear them perform.   It is fitting that the home stage of the great Charlie Daniels, provide a venue to feature our local talent.”

Carol Kaelin of the Arts Alliance and with Tennessee  Sports Medicine and Orthopedics comments  that, “we are going to keep the entertainment moving by converting the stage into two parts with a performing side and setup side.  This system will allow us to rotate from one side to the other with a minimum of time in between artists.  I am really excited about this event and hope that the community comes out to support our songwriters and the Summer Series of outdoor events.”

The artists performing  are: The Red Wine Effect with Jenny Casey, Suzanne Karr, Carson Ruff & Emily Raney, Kelly Monahan, Linda McKenzie, Travis Lamb, Tyler Goodson & Willi Evans, Jason Delkou, Tyler House and Amanda White. Many of the artists have published and all are on the way to writing a number one hit song.  The music styles will vary from Country to Indie with a lot in between.

Juliet website under city calendar or click on - http://www.egovlink.com/mtjuliet/events/calendar.asp#.  In the event of inclement weather and cancellation there are no plans for a reschedule of that night’s performances.  For more information call Gary Rabideau at (615)415-1740.
