Spend an evening with the CMC family of entertainers

CROSSVILLE — With the excitement of the Downtown Crossville revitalization infrastructure project just months away from starting, DCI has begun a fundraising campaign. Continuing on the success of previous concerts, DCI is pleased to announce the third concert in partnership with Cumberland Medical Center scheduled for 2012.

Sharing an evening of family entertainers on Monday, July 30, An Evening with the CMC Family of Entertainers will provide our community with incredibly talented musicians of ages and music types. A sample of the featured musicians include:

• Luther Myers

Luther has played guitar since the age of 13. He has performed on stage with the likes of Grand Ole Opry Star and 1967 CMA Male Vocalist of the Year Jack Greene, Don Helms, Texas Troubadour Lynn Owsley, and Becky Hobbs. Luther says, "One of my fondest musical memories is playing on stage with Hank Williams steel guitarist Don Helms in what became his last public performance."

• Stanley Brown

Stanley picked up the guitar at a young age and then began learning to play the mandolin and bass in his 20s. He was a member of the gospel group Earthen Vessels for about 5 years and later joined his family bluegrass group, Brown Brothers Etc. The group itself has been together in some form or another since the 1970s and currently consists of Stanley, his dad, and two of his aunts and uncles. He has been playing music for around 25 years now and considers his dad, uncles and cousins as some of his biggest musical influences.

• Dr. Barry Wagner

Although an Emergency Room doctor by professional training, Dr. Wagner has long had a love of music and the music industry.

Performing at the Palace Theatre on Monday, July 30, starting at 7 p.m., they will perform a combination of personal and popular musical favorites. Tickets are $10 each with all proceeds benefiting the downtown Crossville revitalization effort. 

Downtown Crossville, Inc. is focused on creating an economic climate in the downtown area to increase sales tax revenue and property tax values. The infrastructure project will update the water pipes, storm drainage, sidewalks, lighting, and traffic lighting to encourage retail and restaurant development. DCI is raising funds to support the infrastructure progress with enhancements to encourage retail shopping and downtown activities.

Tickets are $10 and available at the Palace Theatre. For more information or questions, please contact DCI at 931-787-1324.
