Nashville, TN, July 13, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Mark Newton, Lyrics for Lyric show host, is proud to announce the addition of TCM Recording Artist Chris Caskey to the July 26th Lyrics for Lyric show.
Chris started performing with his first band at the age of 11. After sending his demos to Nashville Producers, Publishers and Record Labels, he caught the ear of Bob Stegall at Jen Eri Lin Music Publishing and made the move to Nashville where he would eventually land an artist development deal with Mercury Records in 1998 but the deal would eventually be cut short. He continued to perform with various bands across KY and found himself being rediscovered nearly ten years later in August of 2009 by Nashville’s Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell.
By November of 2010 Frizzell successfully attained investment and put together a winning team to record, market and promote Caskey, launching his first single “God’s Pocket” to radio, debuting in January of 2011 on TCM Records.
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 Bedhed & Blondy.
