ASCAP and sEVENTeen Event Management hosted the inaugural Snowmass Celebrity Ski Fest charity event in Aspen, Colorado, on Thursday, Feb. 22. Charles Kelley of trio Lady Antebellum headlined the exclusive event alongside pop singer-songwriter Edwin McCain. The evening was opened by a songwriters round featuring ASCAP hitmakers Chris DeStefano (“Don’t Ya,” “Something in the Water”), Jon Nite (“Boy,” “If I Told You”) and Steven Lee Olsen (“Blue Ain’t Your Color,” “More Girls Like You”).
ASCAP Creative Manager Beth Brinker said, “We changed the backdrop and raised the bar on a classic Nashville experience. The songs and voices that fill stadiums, in a cozy ski lodge setting – and all in the spirit of raising money for LadyAID and kids all over the world. The audience had a once-in-a-lifetime evening and we’re thrilled to say the inaugural Snowmass Celebrity Ski Fest was a success!”
The inaugural annual event raised money for LadyAID, a philanthropic effort founded by the members of Lady Antebellum – Dave Haywood, Kelley and Hillary Scott. Created in 2012, the multi-level organization garners awareness and support for children in need locally, nationally and globally, as it is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Presented by ASCAP, the Snowmass Celebrity Ski Fest offered participants the opportunity to attend an intimate, Nashville “in-the-round” concert at T-Lazy-7 Ranch, a private lodge in the mountains of Aspen. The event was sponsored in part by First Tennessee Bank, Yeti, Columbia and Eddie Bauer.
