Blackhawk at Lyrics for Lyric Benefit Show

Multi Platinum Selling Country Group Blackhawk to be Featured On
Mark Newton’s Sept. 20th Lyrics for Lyric Benefit Show

Nashville, TN – The Mark Newton’s Lyrics for Lyric Benefit Show is proud to announce the addition of the Multi-platinum-selling country group Blackhawk as a featured act to the Tuesday September 20th Lyrics for Lyric Benefit Show at Roosters TX Style BBQ & Steakhouse.

The September 20th Lyrics for Lyric Benefit Show will be the tenth installment of the monthly benefit concert series at Roosters TX Style BBQ & Steakhouse, located at 123 12th Avenue North, Nashville, TN. 37203, hosted by Mark Newton, IBMA Award winning Stylist/ Musician and one of today's most respected interpreters of bluegrass music. Each month is jam packed with Nashville's best established talent in the Country, Bluegrass, Americana and Roots genres to benefit the Lyric Frizzell Foundation, named after two year old Lyric Alana Frizzell whom was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of Leukemia at 10 months old.

The Lyrics for Lyric show began as the brain child of Picks Nashville owner’s Wade and Tina Johnson in November of 2010  to raise money and offset costs incurred while the Frizzell family lived at the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital during Lyric’s chemo treatment. The creative monocure, Lyrics for Lyric was the design of Tina. Starting in July of 2011 after the close of Picks Nashville the show was taken in a new direction by Co-Producer’s Corey Frizzell and Mark Newton with the intention of benefiting childhood cancer research in the name of the Lyric Frizzell Foundation. September also marks the official incorporation of the Lyric Frizzell Foundation and is recognized as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Multi-platinum-selling country group BlackHawk is Henry Paul (guitar, mandolin and vocals) and Dave Robbins (keyboards and vocals). They along with third founding member Van Stephenson exploded on to the country music landscape in 1993 with their debut smash "Goodbye Says It All". With a dozen top ten hits including two number ones to their credit and album sales that exceed 7 million records, they continue to carve out their own place in music history. In 1999 tragedy struck when Van was diagnosed with melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer.

In 2001 after a long courageous fight Van lost his battle. Henry and Dave have since followed through with his dying wish that BlackHawk continue to make great music and that they try and help find a cure. They established the Van Stephenson Memorial Cancer Research Fund in his memory, donating the proceeds of their efforts to the Vanderbilt Cancer Research Center. They continue to write and record new music and with their incredible band continue to spread BlackHawk's unique musical message. BlackHawk's faithful followers have continued to grow in numbers over the years based on the consistency of quality in their live show. Night after night BlackHawk puts on an inspired performance that resonates in the hearts and minds of music enthusiasts everywhere.
