Scotty Emerick is an American country music artist, known primarily for his work with Toby Keith. In addition to penning 53 of Keith’s songs, Emerick has also written for Willie Nelson, Sawyer Brown, George Strait, Kenney Chesney and many other artists. In 2004, Emerick was named “Songwriter of the Year” by the Nashville Songwriters Association.
Friday night’s show will feature Phillip Coleman with Annie Moser and Byron Hill. Moser’s song “Goldfish” was recently produced and recorded by British pop icon and Beatles producer Alan Parsons. She is a winner of the Texas Wildflower Music Festival, a regular at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe and a longtime member of the sassy Nashville-based group “Girls With Guitars.”
Byron Hill has written songs released on ninety-five industry certified Gold and Platinum albums and singles, earning ten ASCAP awards, thirty-six U.S. and Canadian top-ten chart hits, and have become hits in many other worldwide markets. To date, fifteen members of the Country Music Hall of Fame have recorded his songs. Byron was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2018. The songs “Fool Hearted Memory” (George Strait), “Pickin’ Up Strangers” (Johnny Lee), “Politics, Religion, And Her” (Sammy Kershaw), “Nothing On But The Radio” (Gary Allan), “Born Country” (Alabama), “High-Tech Redneck” (George Jones), “Alright Already” (Larry Stewart), “If I Was A Drinkin’ Man” (Neal McCoy), “Size Matters” (Joe Nichols), “Nights” (Ed Bruce), and “Lifestyles Of The Not So Rich And Famous” (Tracy Byrd), are just a few of the notable songs in his recorded catalog that spans four decades and includes songs recorded by a long list of other iconic and current artists of our time. In 2022, Byron’s song “Fool Hearted Memory” recorded by George Strait is celebrating its 40th Anniversary as Strait’s first #1.
Unlike previous year’s Singer-Songwriter events, there will be six VIP tables at the front of the venue, close to the stage. All other seating will be theater style and seating will be very limited for this event.
Those interesting in purchasing a table can email Mary Nita Bondurant at email@example.com. The cost of a table is $2,000 and includes seating for ten and two free drink tickets per guest.
“The reason so many of us love this fundraiser is because it’s one of the rare opportunities to enjoy hearing Phillip and the other musicians in a close, personal setting,” said Mary Nita Bondurant. “It’s almost our own little Bluebird Café right here in Obion County.”
