Operation Song will host its its “Evening with Operation Song” event at the Richland Country Club in Nashville on June 14. Hosted by Storme Warren of SiriusXM’s The Highway, the live concert will feature hit songwriters Brett James, Jim Collins, and Bob DiPiero.
Operation Song is a non-profit organization that pairs accomplished Nashville songwriters with the military community to help them tell their stories through song.
James is a Grammy-winning songwriter who was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He boasts 19 No. 1 songs recorded by artists such as Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Bon Jovi, Backstreet Boys and Kelly Clarkson. Collins is a Texas Songwriters Hall of Fame member, whose song “The Good Stuff” was a seven-week No. 1 for Chesney. DiPiero is also a Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter with 15 No. 1 hits. He was just recently honored with the inaugural CMA Songwriter Advocate Award and has had multiple Songwriter of the Year awards, CMA Triple Play Awards and was honored with the BMI Icon Award.
Showcasing Operation Song’s mission to support the military community will be an Afghanistan citizen, Massoud Rezai. He worked alongside the US as an Afghanistan interpreter with 5th Special Forces Group to help fight the Taliban for many years. Massoud’s song, “Anything it Takes” which he cowrote with hit songwriter Jason Sever, will be introduced for the first time at the event.
“We’re beyond proud to connect these storied songwriters with our veterans, active military and their family members to bring healing through music,” says Bob Regan, founder of Operation Song.
Tickets can be purchased here. Net proceeds from the event go directly to Operation Song’s programs and services for veterans, active-duty military, and their families.
