The 10th Annual READING, WRITING & RHYTHM benefit concert, held TUESDAY (6/8) at TPAC’s JAMES POLK THEATER in NASHVILLE, raised thousands of dollars for the local KINGSTON SPRINGS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, which was devastated by flood waters. The event also raised over one ton of food for the SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK of MIDDLE TENNESSEE.
Over 800 people attended the event, which featured performances by TRISHA YEARWOOD, RODNEY CROWELL, SHEDAISY, JAMEY JOHNSON, BUCKY COVINGTON, JUSTIN MOORE, BUXTON HUGHES, JANN ARDEN and READING, WRITING & RHYTHM'S founder, CHELY WRIGHT.
Items were auctioned off throughout the evening including a shopping spree with CHELY to MITCHELL GOLD and BOB WILLIAMS furniture store and a fly away trip to see CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist KEITH URBAN. CHELY, who signed her last autograph at 4:40a (CT), said: “The 10th Annual READING, WRITING & RHYTHM event was a spectacular celebration of music and fun. I want to say a special thank you to my artist friends, the sponsors and especially the fans for making the night such a huge success!”
