Stars Come Out for Nashville Benefits
Bucky Covington, Danielle Peck, The Mavericks, Craig Campbell and other stars are doing their part to help the Nashville community this week with a pair of benefit shows.
The busy week kicks off Tuesday night (April 23) with the “Wear It Well, Wear It Out” benefit for Manuel “Manny” Cuevas Jr., the son of legendary fashion designer Manuel Cuevas, best known as simply Manuel. Young Manny recently suffered a near-fatal battle with diverticulitis, resulting in multiple surgeries. The Mavericks will headline the fundraiser at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville. Craig Campbell, Eric Lee Beddingfield, Keith Gattis and others are also slated to perform.
Wednesday night (April 24) at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville in downtown Nashville, Bucky Covington, Danielle Peck and Christian artist Jason Crabb headline the “Angels on Earth” benefit concert. The show, which also includes a silent auction, will raise funds for Nashville resident Theresa Lawton, who was seriously injured after being hit by a drunk driver as she was walking to church. Theresa suffered multiple injuries and faces large medical bills. Top Music Row songwriters Anthony Smith and Frank Myers will also perform at the show, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m.
The two shows are continuing examples of country stars giving back to their communities.
