Songs For A Cure had its BEST NIGHT YET at The Listening Room at Cummins Station in Nashville on Tuesday April 14th. The purpose of the event is to raise funds by putting on shows in the fight against cancer and to create awareness that others are available to reach out into the community by visiting hospitals, individuals and being a friend to those in need of a shoulder when going through this difficult time. Key organizers are forming a "Cancer Support Group" and more information will be available very soon. The purpose is for those who have had their lives turned upside down to have a place to turn to. The focus is "hope and healing" where people can share, make new friends and be inspired.

Those who planned this touching event encourage survivors as well as those who are currently in treatment to attend the shows. The Spring Bash was honored to have many of them as guests at the show and among these special people were two who stood out at this particular show. “Melvin” and “Jennifer” who are presently diagnosed with cancer, but continue to fight and greet each new day and every new friend with a smile.

Funds are raised by donations at the door and sales of a special CD called "SONGS OF HOPE,STORIES OF COURAGE" which is available for purchase at All proceeds from these efforts go to The American Cancer Society Relay For Life. A special guitar autographed by each of the artists who participated was given away at the end of the evening and won by Eddie Heinzleman.
