I have got to tell all our local folks about an awesome event, coming up on June 22, 2013, in Kingsport. Those of you who have been reading Country’s Chatter since the site began (in Feb. 2008), have read a lot about Brinley Addington. Back in May 2012, we had an article titled ‘Artist Concepts Partners Becky Harris, Anthony Smith and Chris Young sing Brinley Addington for Artist Representation’. If you missed that, you can read that article by clicking here.
I just can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed watching this kid perform over the years. He is a talented artist, who continues to grow every time he walks out on the stage. I do hope you will all check out the article that went up after his Steele Creek Park performance last year. Sometimes when you watch an artist on stage, it is obvious that he loves what he is doing. Brinley is that kind of artist. You have a good time when you watch him – and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He loves what he does.
Now that I’ve reminded everyone who Brinley Addington is, and what he does – I have got to tell you about the Inaugural Brinley Addington Hometown Throwdown, which is being held in Kingsport, Tenn., on June 22. This six hour event will feature Brinley, along with special guests Kristen Kelley (‘Ex Old Man,” ‘He Loves to Make Me Cry’); Beth Snapp, Brad Blackwell, Hana Lena, and John King, winner of the 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Daytona Energy Resources 250, who will be on hand to sign autographs. And, I’m not convinced that is everyone. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if that list grows between now and June 22.
Cool thing about this is that all proceeds from the ticket price ($10 in advance, $12 at the door) will benefit Children’s Miracle Network, an organization that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. So you will not only see an awesome show, you’re going to be helping children in our area with your donation (ticket purchase) to CMN. Tickets are available at Food City stores: Colonial Heights, Church Hill, Weber City, and both Kingsport locations. Tickets are also available online at wellmontfoundation.org.
There you have it – time to mark this one on your calendar. June 22, 6 p.m., Domtar Park in Kingsport, Tenn. You can keep up with the event on Brinley’s web site, or the Throwdown facebook page. You can follow Brinley on Twitter @Brinley_, and follow the event @HometwnThrowdwn.
