Validity Magazine announced the second annual Validity Concert Series, to be held on April 11, 2015 at 7 p.m. Davis House Child Advocacy Center will again be the beneficiary of the music event at the Strand Theatre in Hohenwald, Tennessee. “The Validity Concert Series celebrates the musical heritage of our area,” owner and publisher Becky Newbold stated, adding, “It also raises money for and brings awareness to local organizations who bless our communities. We are pleased to host this event on behalf of Davis House Child Advocacy Center.”
All proceeds will benefit the programs and services provided to child victims of sexual and/or severe physical abuse by the Davis House. The Oliver Companies, Duncan’s Hardware, Tommy & Joan Graham, Joan’s Hometown Pharmacy and CB&S Bank are presenting sponsors for the event.
Although the musical lineup will vary slightly from last year, the entertainers will again be of splendid caliber. The Redhead Express will return. The four sister group has been touring from Alaska since 2007 and has performed over 2000 shows. They now reside in middle Tennessee, in the heart of America’s roots music. The music of the Redhead Express will take you back to your roots in a way that feels fresh and new. Click here to see more.
Mike Webb is also in the musical lineup. Since he was a young boy, a love of traditional country music and the Grand Ole Opry has been a passion. Befriended by music legends like Roy Acuff, Charlie Collins and Brother Oswald as a teenager, Mike learned to appreciate the heritage of country music. Mike was given Brother Oswald’s dobro as the legend neared the end of his life. “This instrument doesn’t need to be in a museum,” Oswald told Mike. “It needs to be played.” Mike has performed with Marty Stuart on the Grand Ole Opry and on RFD TV.
Amanda Rose, an independent songwriter from Hohenwald, will perform as well. She will be accompanied by Luke and Zach Newbold. Amanda Rose started her musical journey early in childhood. Stuck all day in the thrift store her parents owned, Amanda would write songs about her experiences there and sing them to the customers. Amanda graduated from MTSU and is signed to an independent label based in Los Angeles. “I am a survivor of child sexual abuse; not just a survivor, but a thriver, and I have the Davis House to thank for that,” she stated. “They are sensitive, sincere and dedicated, and I am honored to support them by sharing the gift that my creator blessed me with.”
Davis House provides a safe haven for children who have suffered abuse and serves children and their families within the counties of Williamson, Hickman, Lewis and Perry. The services supplied by Davis House are given at no cost to the children or families, as the advocacy center is a 501c3 not-for-profit charity.
According to the Davis House, there are 63,875 children in the four-county service area. National statistics convey that 1 in 10 of those children will be sexually abused by age 18. Davis House aid includes forensic interviews, victim advocacy, counseling, support groups, court support and victim court orientation to victims and their non-offending family members or caregivers.
