HIT SONGWRITERS TO SUPPORT FORMER AMERICA'S GOT TALENT CONTESTANT BATTLING CANCER
$10 Evening Benefit to Raise Money for Kacey Jones from 6-8pm
Jones, a professional singer/songwriter/musician, and a contestant last year on America's Got Talent, was diagnosed in January 2014. “I was told my ‘only hope’ was a protocol of chemo and radiation five days a week, followed by an extremely radical surgery, followed by six more months of chemo. That scared the heck out of me. I'm not afraid of dying, but I have a healthy fear of being poisoned, burned, and butchered,” Jones said.
Since then, Jones sought alternative treatments from licensed MDs as well as holistic and homeopathic doctors and, thus far, her cancer has not metastasized. “My vital organs are clear and I'm still in one piece, so I know we're doing SOMETHING right,” Jones said. However, her alternative treatments and therapies are not covered by insurance.
“I'm not cancer-free yet, but I believe I will be if I can just stay on this wellness path that I began nearly two years ago,” Jones said.
In an effort to support Jones, Nashville’s elite songwriters will perform their iconic hits to help raise money for their dear friend.
Scheduled to perform, include Kent Blazy ("If Tomorrow Never Comes," "Ain't Goin' Down Till the Sun Comes Up" for Garth Brooks), Alan Rhody ("I'll Be True to You" for The Oak Ridge Boys), Cory Batten ("Gettin' You Home," for Chris Young and "She Wouldn't Be Gone" for Blake Shelton), Rafe Van Hoy ("Baby I Lied" for Deborah Allen and "Golden Ring" by George Jones & Tammy Wynette), Roger Cook ("One Night at a Time" for George Strait) and "Talkin' in Your Sleep" for Crystal Gayle), Wood Newton ("Riding With Private Malone" for David Ball, "Bobbie Sue" for The Oak Ridge Boys and "Twenty Years Ago" for Kenny Rogers).
Additional writers on the show include: Doug Gill, Jim Parker, Lynn Langham, Jim Sales, and Jonmark Stone (all of whom have hits and cuts with major label artists). Jones is also scheduled to play a few original tunes, including "Donald Trump's Hair," which is currently enjoying nationwide airplay on more than 1,000 stations, including News-Talk giant KABC Radio Los Angeles and legendary 650 AM WSM in Nashville.
