Tomorrow (10/5) at 9 pm the Bluebird Cafe will host a benefit show for Faith Family Medical Clinic, featuring songwriters Steve Bogard, Brett James, Wayland Holyfield and Monty Powell. Faith Family is a faith-based, non-profit organization that provides affordable health care to uninsured Nashville-area songwriters and musicians. As part of a new partnership with NSAI, songwriter members can now present their NSAI cards to be established as patients. “Many songwriters don’t have health insurance and don’t receive needed health care services because they simply do not know that clinics like Faith Family Medical exist,” says NSAI’s Susan Myers, director of sponsorships. “This affiliation will save local songwriters and musicians tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses.”

Big & Rich will also pick up the hospital fundraising torch, when the duo is featured at the Baptist Hospital Foundation’s Rock The Cradle event October 25 at the Loveless Cafe Barn. The dinner and cocktail reception begins at 6:30 pm, and includes a silent auction with exclusive travel packages. Proceeds will support babies born at Baptist and the Beaman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Table sponsorships, as well as a limited amount of individual tickets, are available for purchase at www.rockthecradlenashville.com. “This is a causal, fun event that offers the chance to listen to some of Nashville’s best country artists in an intimate setting and we’re extremely excited to have Big & Rich involved this year,” says Bernie Sherry, president and CEO of Baptist Hospital. In 2010, Rock the Cradle featured Martina McBride and Faith Hill performing together for the first time and raised over $225,000.
