BACKSTAGE: Woofstock at Fontanel (Summer Issue)

The 2nd Annual Woofstock at Fontanel was held on June 8th, and I was on location for great music and a great cause.  Multi-Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris put on the event to benefit Bonaparte’s Retreat, an organization she established that rescues dogs whose time has run out at Metro Nashville Animal Control.  Crossroads Campus was also benefited.  “This is a great day for the people of Nashville and their dogs,” Emmylou said.  Many of her friends joined her on the bill for the event, and there were some surprises, as well.  There were performances by John Hiatt, Joan Osborne, Buddy Miller, Jim Lauderdale, Bobby Bare and several others.  My favorite surprise was Keb’ Mo’ and Sam Bush taking the stage to perform together.  They were phenomenal.  In addition to the music, there were tents set up with dog related and un-related vendors, along with several artists.  Among those artists was John Cannon.  Someone you will hear more about from me soon.  I also plan to get more in depth with some of the music artists I met at the event.  Stay tuned!
