NDOC Benefit Songwriter Round at The Bluebird Cafe February 14, 2014

Calling all Cowboys at Heart! Please Join us at the world famous Bluebird Café in Nashville, Tennessee, on Valentine’s Day for a songwriter
round to benefit the National Day of the Cowboy non-profit organization. Our hit writing artists are Bryan Kennedy, Wynn Varble and Troy Jones.

The Toe Roaster trio

The Toe Roaster trio

Head wrangler for the round is Bryan Kennedy. Reading a description of Bryan’s prolific talents, you get the impression that he can’t possibly be just one person and must be an entire organization! He is a singer, a hit songwriter, musician, actor, producer, director, performer, playwright, novelist, author, blogger, and Spot coach, not to mention a former college football player for Ole Miss. This is not the first time Bryan has helped the National Day of the Cowboy out either. He very graciously autographed both of the guitars we had donated to us and he was kind enough to take a picture of our brick at the famed Luckenbach, Texas honky tonk, which is inscribed “National Day of the Cowboy.” Bryan is the co-writer of several of Garth Brooks’ biggest hits, including Good Ride Cowboy, American Honky Tonk Bar Association, and The Beaches of Cheyenne.

Wynn Varble is one of Bryan’s compadres in the round. Wynn co-wrote Waitin on a Woman, a # 1 hit for Brad Paisley, Have you Forgotten recorded by Daryl Worley, A Little More Country than That a #1 for Easton Corbin, and Cadillac Tears which he co-wrote with legendary songwriter, Leslie Satcher.

The third member of this amazing trio is Troy Jones (aka The Fork Lift Philosopher from 20 years in a paper mill). Troy’s cuts include People are Crazy,” a hit for Billy Currington, Pretty Good at Drinking Beer, another hit for Currington, and Shade for Joe Nichols

Bryan, Wynn and Troy co-starred in Bryan’s hilarious and heart warming musical play, The Toe Roaster, which offers an illuminating and transformational glimpse into the possibilities of achieving world peace around a campfire through the characters of Chuck, Big Daddy and Hamlet. I can verify, that taken Individually, these three wonderful cowboys are as talented as they come, but put them in a room together, and the fun and entertainment goes up exponentially. There will be door prizes too, with extra tickets going to those wearing pearl snap shirts and/or cowboy boots, so we encourage you to don your best western garb.
