Behind the Hits: Songwriters for St. Jude
This event was presented by 104.5 WFMB and sponsored by the Bob Ridings Family of Dealerships.  A portion of every ticket sold was donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

On Sunday, February 12, at the Hoogland Center for the Arts we brought together three songwriters: Kent Blazy, Nate Barrett, and Cory Batten.   They've written songs for Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Chris Young, and a slew of other country artist.

They shared their stories behind these hits.
