This intimate concert is a benefit to raise funds for Nashville's oldest meeting place for people who want to recover from alcoholism. All three of the performers are passionate about helping people with alcoholism find recovery, and are donating their time and talent for this concert.

Cheryl Wheeler has to be seen to be appreciated. Nothing you read and nothing you hear from her albums prepares you for how entertaining a performer she is.
If you're not already familiar with Cheryl, you have probably heard her music.  Cheryl's songs have been covered by artists including  Dan Seals, Peter Paul & Mary, Kenny Loggins, Garth Brooks, Suzy Bogguss, Melanie, Bette Midler, Maura O'Connell,Sylvia, Kathy Mattea, and Holly Near.
Cheryl's first concert was to a captive audience. She found an old toy ukelele in a neighbor's attic and serenaded her mother who was taking a bath at the time. A year later she got a real ukelele, followed by her first guitar.
Cheryl has never had a "day job," and her first professional gigs were at the Steak and Ale Restaurant in her home town of Timonium, Maryland. The place only had one PA system; in the middle of her songs you would hear: "Jones, party of four ...
Jones, party of four." She finally convinced them to get a second PA system.

Jon Vezner is a tunesmith of rare sensitivity and dry wit. He is a Nashville based, Grammy award-winning songwriter. His catalogue of recorded songs, topped by the poignant "Where've You Been," reflects his straight-to-the heart sensibility and emotional awareness. Vezner weaves the particulars of his own feelings with the lives of people he has known into universal themes that deeply touch listeners' emotions.
Vezner was honored with a Grammy for "Best Country Song" and the Nashville Songwriters Association "Song of the Year" in 1990, for "Where've You Been", the true story of Vezner's grandparents, co-written with Don Henry, and recorded by Kathy Mattea. "Where've You Been" was also honored as "Song of the Year" by the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music (ACM).
Jon's catalogue of songs reads like a songbook itself, interpreted and recorded by the greats in the business as varied as the songs themselves; artists such as Martina McBride, Janis Ian, John Mellencamp, Nancy Griffith, Faith Hill, Clay Walker, Diamond Rio and Native American recording artist, Bill Miller. Other co-penned songs recorded by Kathy Mattea include "A Few Good Things Remain," "Time Passes By," "Whole Lotta Holes," "Slow Boat," "Who's Gonna Know," "All Roads to the River," "The Innocent Years," "Calling My Name," "Trust Me," and most recently the touching ballad "Ashes in the Wind." Singles written by Vezner include "If I Didn't Love You" by Steve Warriner, "Has Anybody Seen Amy" by John and Audrey Wiggins, "Then What" by Clay Walker, and "You're Gone" by Diamond Rio.

Grammy Award winner Don Henry's songs have been recorded by legends like: Ray Charles, Patti Page and Conway TwittyBy country crooners like: Gene Watson, John Conlee and B.J. ThomasBy young hit makers of today like: Blake Shelton, Lonestar and Miranda Lambert ......and the list goes on.
He's shared the stage with performers as diverse as Joey Ramone to Keith Urban.
The wit and wisdom of Don's songs are widely renowned whether it's campfire favorites, the hilarious "B.F.D." and biker lullaby "Harley", to the wonderfully poignant tribute to Martin Luther King "Beautiful Fool", and of course his Grammy Award winning country classic "Where've You Been".
In addition to a Grammy, Kathy Mattea's version of "Where've You Been" won Don (and co-writer Jon Vezner) song of the year honors from ACM (Academy of Country Music), CMA (Country Music Association) and NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International).
"Where've You Been" was the first song in country music history to be awarded all four honors in the same year!
Miranda Lambert's great version of "All Kinds of Kinds," which Don wrote with Phillip Coleman, was a top 15 song on Billboard's Country charts and won Music Row Magazine's Song of the Year.
