Rodney Crowell and Gretchen Peters are among the hit songwriters/artists set to perform at tomorrow night’s (3/23) 2nd annual The Stars Go Blue For Colon Cancer benefit. Joining them on the 7 PM line-up at the Loveless Barn are fellow tunesmiths Mike Reid, Barry Walsh and Peter Cooper, along with special guests Mike Snider, Wade Hayes and Bill Miller. Great American Country’s Nan Kelley will host the evening.
Up for bid will be 5 bar stools hand-painted by the appearing songwriters using the classic ribbon color for colon cancer – true blue. In addition, there will be one stool that was doodled and autographed by country music stars as they passed through the GAC studios.
Event tickets are on sale now and available at the Colon Cancer Alliance website, www.ccalliance.org, and the Loveless Barn box office the day of the show. General admission is $35. Exclusive blue ribbon tables are also available for $500 and include front row tables (four seats per table).

The strenuous walk will start at Dan McGuinness Pub and run the lengthy 100 yards down Demonbreun to the Tin Roof where Tom Douglas, Jonathan Singleton, Mallary Hope, Ashton Shepherd and Rhett Atkins will perform.
