The Stories Behind the Songs featuring Martina McBride, The Warren Brothers and Leslie Satcher – The Franklin Theatre

The 21st District Recovery Court is hosting their 2nd annual singer-songwriter night on Wed., Feb. 21, 2024, from 7 – 9 p.m. at The Franklin Theatre. The intimate musical experience features Grammy® nominee and multi-platinum artist Martina McBride alongside singer-songwriters The Warren Brothers and Leslie Satcher.

“I’m so very honored to be taking part in this showcase with my dear friends The Warren Brothers, Leslie Satcher and the hard-working people of the 21st District Recovery Court,” said McBride. “Addiction and substance abuse affects so many people, their families, and their friends. That’s why it’s critical that we support the 21st District Recover Court and their effort to help those suffering from alcohol and substance abuse.”

All proceeds from the event will go directly to Recovery Court to support its 21-year mission to end the cycle of addiction and crime in our community by providing accountability and compassion to non-violent offenders in the criminal justice system.

“Both Brad and I have a passion to help those who are suffering from alcohol and substance abuse,” said Brett Warren, who also serves on Recovery Court’s board of directors. “This fundraiser is one of the ways we are supporting the addiction and recovery community and we look forward to joining Martina and Leslie as we share the inspiration behind some of our songs, while also raising funds to support the current 26 Recovery Court participants as they work hard to regain their lives and become healthy.” Those who would like to support Recovery Court but cannot attend the event may make an online donation at

About 21st District Recovery Court 

The 21st Recovery Court serves the 21st Judicial District. Program participants are non-violent offenders with a history of chemical dependency, which has shown to be one of the primary reasons for repeated criminal activity. The program works with law enforcement and the courts as participants engage in a highly supervised, two-year program, providing treatment, supervision and support. Graduates of recovery court programs have a low rate of reoffending, especially compared to those offenders supervised in traditional court probation and parole programs. Participants’ recovery allows them to have a productive life while the community is served by a reduction in criminal activity and cost-effective treatment for offenders. Most importantly, the families and lives of the participants are restored to a safe and positive environment. Recovery courts in Tennessee are not supported by state judicial budgets, rather they are partially funded by a portion of statutory court costs paid by criminal offenders.
