Mark Newton, Lyrics for Lyric show host, is proud to announce the addition of Nashville Americana favorites, Bedhed & Blondy to the July 26th Lyrics for Lyric show.
Bedhed and Blondy are an Americana/Folk-Rock five piece band based in Nashville, TN and are shaped by the varied musical pasts of each of its members; primary songwriter, rhythm guitarist and volcalist Jay Studdard (Bedhed), has a Rock-n- Roll/Southern Rock background while rhythm guitarist and vocalist Fran Jackson (Blondy), retained the blues vocal style of her grandmother.
Released in November 2010, Bedhed and Blondy released their second CD, “NUTHIN”... recorded at OGM Studio with Grammy recognized engineer Charlie Chadwick, follows the release of their debut acoustic nine-song disk, “Somewhere In Memphis”. Currently the band is promoting songs from both albums and is performing in Nashville area venues with plans for a Southeastern summer tour in 2011.
The July 26th Lyrics for Lyric show will be the eighth installment of the on-going concert series presented by Roosters TX Style BBQ & Steakhouse, located at 123 12th Avenue North, Nashville, TN. 37203, hosted by Mark Newton, IBMA Award winning Stylist/ Musician and one of today's most respected interpreters of bluegrass music. Each month is jam packed with Nashville's best established talent in the Country, Bluegrass, Americana and Roots genres to benefit two year old Lyric Alana Frizzell (offset costs incurred while living at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital) whom was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of Leukemia at ten months old. After spending 6 months undergoing harsh chemo treatments at the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Lyric is now in what’s called a “partial remission”, which simply means she has responded well to the chosen chemo treatment. She now frequents the Vanderbilt Cancer Clinic on a monthly basis and will do so for the next 3 and ½ years. If she can reach the 5 year mark without a relapse, she will be declared in full remission. Past shows have featured such stars as Jamie Johnson, Marty Raybon, Carl Jackson, Trent Tomlinson, Claire Lynch, Cia Cheryholmes, Missy Raines, Larry Cordle, Jerry Salley, The Roys, Whitney Duncan, Michael Peterson, Whitney Duncan and Billy Yates. As the show has grown, so has the talent level and sponsorship support from companies such as TKL Cases, D’Addario Strings, Double E Promotions and Paige Capo.
The July 26th show will also feature such great artists as American Idol Alum Bo Bice, Dean Miller, Ken Mellons, John Austin McDaniel and Chris Caskey.
