Strings & Stories: An Intimate Night of Songwriters’ Tales

February 25, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Green’s Grocery in Leipers Fork will hold the 7th Annual Strings & Stories: An Intimate Night of Songwriters’ Tales on Saturday, February 25th with acclaimed songwriter and Nashvillian Barry Dean as the host and headliner.  Singer-songwriters belong on the stage sharing their craft, and that is exactly where you will find Dean and Friends as they share the stories behind some of country music’s favorite songs in the intimate Green’s Grocery setting at 4345 Old Hillsboro Road in Leipers Fork.  The fundraiser event, benefiting High Hopes Development Center which provides education and therapy to children with special needs, will begin at 6:00pm and include dinner by Red Pony, wine by Del Rio Wine & Spirits, beer by Czann’s Brewery, and dessert and coffee by Frothy Monkey.

Barry Dean, who has a personal connection to High Hopes, has written No. 1 Country Music hits “Pontoon” and “Day Drinking”, both recorded by Little Big Town, as well as songs for many other top country artists including Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Hunter Hayes, Tim McGraw, and Brett Eldredge, to name a few.  Dean has also had songwriting success beyond the realm of country music for artists including Ingrid Michaelson and Brandon Heath.  The evening will feature “God’s Will”, written by Dean and recorded by Martina McBride, with signed lyrics up for auction.
