Press Release: Phillip Coleman and Friends to Perform at Discovery Park of America’s Singer-Songwriter Night on May 18, 2023

Union City, TennesseeDiscovery Park of America has announced details for the return of the popular Singer-Songwriter Night featuring Phillip Coleman. Coleman’s special guests will be Dave Berg and Carolyn Dawn Johnson. The performances will take place in Discovery Park’s ATA Traveling Exhibit Hall on Thursday, May 18. Tickets and sponsor tables will go on sale to Discovery Park members on Wednesday, April 5, 2023. Any remaining tickets will become available to the public on Friday, April 7, 2023, at 10 a.m. Premier sponsor tables are $2,500, a sponsor table is $1000 and individual tickets are $50.

Dave Berg is an American country music songwriter, known primarily for writing number-one country hits, “If You’re Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)” and “These are my People” by Rodney Atkins, “Somebody” by Reba McEntire and “Moments” by Emerson Drive. Berg has also written over a dozen top ten country hits for artists such as Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Chris Cagle and Bucky Covington.

Carolyn Dawn Johnson is a Canadian country music singer-songwriter. Johnson co-wrote Chely Wright’s number one hit, “Single White Female” in 1999 and signed with record label Arista Nashville in 2000. She then released her debut album, “Room with a View,” with several top ten hits.

Unlike previous years’ Singer-Songwriter events, there will be four premier sponsor tables at the front of the venue, close to the stage, and eight sponsor tables that will be located near the stage. All other seating will be theater-style and will be very limited for this event.

“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 like our own little Bluebird Café right here in Obion County.”
