The Madison-Morgan Cultural Center presents its second installment of “Music City Comes to Madison,” a Nashville In The Round Singer-Songwriter Series. The series includes four concerts throughout the year in the style of Nashville’s Writers In The Round events. Songwriters perform in a line and tell their stories. Award-winning songwriters share MMCC’s historic stage for an intimate concert experience like none before.
Following a sold-out first round performance in June, the Cultural Center is anticipating the same for Round 2 on Sept. 17 at 7 p.m.
Local favorite and Nashville Recording Artist Eric Dodd will host #1 hit songwriter Clay Mills (Darius Rucker, Diamond Rio, Trisha Yearwood) and CMT “Next Women of Country’’ and SiriusXM “Highway Find” artist Kalie Shorr for another terrific in-the-round experience. Additionally, #1 hit songwriter and Nashville recording artist Chuck Cannon (Toby Keith, John Michael Montgomery, Billy Dean) will take the stage to share the stories behind his hit songs and provide a riveting performance, leaving audiences wanting more. Following the concert, there will be a Songwriter Meet and Greet Cocktail Party available for the VIP ticket holders.
Tickets on sale now and can be purchased through MMCC-ARTS.ORG, or by calling the Center at 706.342.4743. General admission tickets are $50 in advance and $70 after Aug. 31. Limited “VIP Experience” tickets are available for $100 and include general admission, reserved on-site parking, and meet & greet cocktail party with the songwriters (following concert).
All proceeds benefit the Center’s mission to enrich the lives of the residents of its immediate community and the broader region by presenting high-quality programming and educational opportunities in the fields of visual and performing arts, history, and other humanities. MMCC will preserve and interpret its historic buildings and will cooperate with other organizations that have mission-compatible goals.
