“Songs On A Mission” Features Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt
Country stars Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt joined hit songwriters Zach Crowell, Matt Jenkins and Bryan Simpson to help raise over $630,000 for Mission Lazarus at the inaugural “Songs On A Mission” event at The Mansion at Fontanel last Thursday night (Sept. 7).
Over 200 attendees enjoyed performances by the songwriters, who told the stories behind their hit songs, as well as Underwood and Hunt who closed out the evening.
“We were beyond appreciative of the fact that Zach, Matt and Bryan took the time to visit our 2,000 acre ranch in Honduras,” said Jarrod Brown, a Nashville businessman who co-founded Mission Lazarus with his wife Allison, NP. “When they came up with the idea of ‘Songs On A Mission,’ we never dreamed Carrie and Sam would agree to participate. We can’t thank all of them enough for donating their time and talents and for all of the amazing donors making this huge difference in the lives of so many people.”
Mission Lazarus was founded by the Browns in 2004 to serve the indigenous people of Honduras and Haiti.
