Songwriter-composer Steve Dorff and actor Stephen Dorff have announced the Andrew Marshall Dorff Memorial Fund in memory of their late son/brother, country music songwriter Andrew Dorff.

In the spirit of Andrew’s favorite time of year, Steve and Stephen Dorff hosted a memorial party yesterday (Dec. 7) to celebrate his life and talents within the country music community. The event will occur annually and any donations made to the memorial fund will support Andrew’s favorite causes.

The Andrew Marshall Dorff Memorial Fund will continue his legacy to uplift a new generation of music lovers. Donations made to the fund will support two initiatives: to help create an endowed scholarship at Belmont University in Andrew’s name that will assist students pursuing a career in songwriting, and to support Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt with its pediatric oncology initiatives.

Andrew Dorff was known in the music world for penning five No. 1 songs for country stars Blake Shelton (“My Eyes” and “Neon Lights”), Kenny Chesney (“Save it for a Rainy Day”), Hunter Hayes (“Somebody’s Heartbreak”), and Rascal Flatts (“Yours if You Want It”). He had other notable chart successes with artists such as Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Old Dominion, and Ronnie Dunn. With over 1,800 songs in his catalog, he left a legacy of many hits to come.

Contributions can be made to the Andrew Marshall Dorff Memorial Fund through The Community Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Donations can also be made on The Community Foundation website, or via mail at:
