Music City is teeming with musicians — but did you know Hendersonville has Southern Music Icons, too? Celebrate the hometown of Hendersonville at Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center on Saturday, February 26 by taking a look at some of the icons of music from Sumner County.
The night features live music from Stephen Flatt and other local, special guests throughout the evening from 4 – 7 p.m.
Signed copies of the book, Southern Music Icons of Hendersonville, Tennessee, will be available for purchase. Guests will be able to meet the authors, Tena Lee & Jennifer Bruce. The book highlight music icons of the early 1960s like Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and June Carter who migrated to the city and the tranquility of the lake. Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash called Hendersonville home from the late 1960s up until their deaths in 2003. And through the decades, the three-story contemporary home that once stood there — a sizable place, with seven bedrooms and almost 14,000 square feet of living space — hosted Cash family Christmas celebrations, songwriting sessions and guitar pulls (Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash and a slew of others are among the list of participants), and a healthy share of quiet times.
In addition, there will be a photography exhibition including works from Alan Messer, Rick Murray and more.
A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the MACC. For more information, visit monthavenartsandculturalcenter.com.
