25th Annual Alive At The Bluebird Concert Series To Wrap With Garth Brooks

The 25th Annual Alive at the Bluebird concert series benefiting Alive Hospice has announced through Feb. 1, wrapping with a show by CMA Entertainer of the Year Garth Brooks.

Brooks will be joined on the Bluebird Cafe stage with fellow writers Kent Blazy, Pat Alger, Victoria Shaw and Tony Arata for a show costing $250.00.

“We are tremendously grateful to the songwriter community for the steadfast support of Alive at the Bluebird for 25 years,” said Alive Hospice President/CEO Anna-Gene O’Neal. “Garth started his career in the intimate company of these dedicated professionals, and so we are thrilled that he can join us for this special anniversary year.”

At least 27 Bluebird shows will take place with 130 artists and songwriters scheduled, including John Oates, Clint Black, Keb Mo’, Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Hunter Hayes and Kathy Mattea.

Two special items have been donated to Alive Hospice to be auctioned during the 25th Annual Alive at the Bluebird concert series. An original “Wings to Fly” oil painting donated by acclaimed artist Deann Hebert and an Epiphone FT-100 acoustic guitar donated by Earl E. Owens, a prominent Nashville manager, producer, promoter and public relations executive who was cared for by Alive Hospice last year. The guitar will be autographed by all artists and writers performing during the Alive at the Bluebird series, and both items will be available for bidding online at bluebirdcafe.com and in person on the final night of the series.

Admission for most Alive at the Bluebird shows follows the standard Bluebird Cafe reservation policy. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday shows are available at 8:00 a.m. one week prior to the posted show, and weekend shows may be reserved on the preceding Monday beginning at 8 a.m. at bluebirdcafe.com. Please refer to the same website for admission pricing. Brooks’ show will go on sale Thursday, Jan. 18 at 8 a.m. CT.
