Music, wine, and advocacy for music education blended beautifully during a songwriters round presented by ASCAP on Wednesday, March 11 at Nashville’s City Winery, to benefit nonprofit organization NOTES for Education.
Songwriters Chris Tompkins, Pat Alger, Tony Arata, and Chris DeStefano took part in a writers round, performing many of their well-known hits. The evening also featured a silent auction of framed, handwritten lyrics of one of each of the writers’ most popular songs, including Arata’s “The Dance” and Alger’s “Unanswered Prayers” (both recorded by Garth Brooks), Tompkins’ “Dirt” (Florida Georgia Line), and DeStefano’s “Just Gettin’ Started” (Jason Aldean).
Bidding for the lyrics is open to the public through March 21. The lyrics will be auctioned individually, and bidding starts at $50 each. Bids can be sent to [email protected].
NOTES for Education was co-founded in Nashville and Napa, and supports music education in schools throughout the two communities.
