Country Jam Session

Tonight I attended the first annual KJJY Songwriter's Dinner. And let me tell you, it was fantastic! A small crowd of about 50 were invited for donating $100 + a bear to Variety - The Children's Charity's annual radiothon. The food was fantastic, but the music was even better. Halfway to Hazard (Mercury Records), Jennifer Hansen (Universal South Records), Lee Brice (Curb Asylum Records), and Hal Ketchum (Curb Records) took the stage for over two hours, jamming out to their hits and making up other songs (all alcohol induced) along the way. For those of you non-country fans...

*Halfway to Hazard has a couple great songs entitled "Daisy," "I'm Tired," and "Got Back Up."
*Jennifer Hansen wrote "Leave the Pieces" for The Wreckers, and is going to release her own album next spring featuring the single "Joy Ride."
*Lee Brice (my personal favorite of the evening) has already released a coupe singles, "She Ain't Right" and "Happy Endings," but most notably just wrote Garth Brook's latest single "More Than a Memory."
*And of cours Hal Ketchum speaks for himself. Duh - he's a legend.
