Charity Show: July 26, 2017: Musicians Corner Presents a Tribute to Paul Simon's Graceland, Nashville, TN


Musicians Corner presents: A Tribute to Paul Simon's Graceland
July 26, 2017
Nashville, TN
Doors 6 PM; Show 8 PM CDT


Preview:
Kris joins musician friends such as Tony Lucca (with whom he co-wrote Never in a Million Years) and Marie Miller (who opened for him on west coast leg of last year's Letting You In tour), for this charity gig in Nashville to benefit Musicians Corner. The theme is a salute to Paul Simon's landmark album Graceland. Kris has participated in similar charity benefit tributes in past years, and we were lucky to have most of them livestreamed and/or video'ed - rare for Nashville shows!  We also got some really great performances from them. Hopefully the same will be true this time. Tickets are still available, so if you are in Nashville, go support them!

Updated 8/1/2017: We are in luck as our friend Annie was there and did get video (which has been added to the post). Kris did three songs - one solo, one duet and one group number at the end. Details, videos and photos in the post after the break! Thank you Annie!
