Nashville, TN, April 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Nashville’s Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell, will be on hand April 23rd for famed designer, Manuel Cuevas Jr.'s, Wear It Out Manuel Benefit, to hand sign his donated prints to the highest bidder.
Frizzell, the 2012 AMG Heritage Freelance Visual Artist of the Year Award recipient, donated his Lefty Frizzell and Johnny Cash fine art prints to be auctioned off to the highest bidder at the benefit being held at Nashville's Cannery Ballroom.
Internationally known fashion designer and an iconic Nashville personality, Manuel Cuevas Jr, otherwise known as Manny, recently suffered a near-death medical battle and a prolonged recovery. Due to these circumstances, he and his young family have fallen into a financial berdon. The Mavericks, with a new album out and a new tour, will be headlining a benefit concert, and other special guest will be playing on April 23rd, 2013 at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville Tennessee, including Shawn Camp, Craig Campbell, Doc Holliday, Eric Beddingfeild, Coy Taylor and many more.
The Frizzell family, most famous for its prominence on the Country Music Charts, is now witnessing the artistic successes of the second generation. Although he has siblings following in the Frizzell music footsteps, who have accepted the challenge of emerging from the giant shadow first cast by the family music patriarch, Lefty Frizzell, Corey chose a different path, a path to create his own shadow.
Corey falls somewhere in the middle of the six children spanning four decades of Allen Frizzell, former Nashville recording artist and younger brother of the Legendary Lefty Frizzell and Country Star, David Frizzell.
Frizzell has been a Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, acted in music videos and cast for two roles in the original Stephen King movie, “Children of The Corn.” If that's not interesting enough, he's now a writer, producer, manager, boxing coach and visual artist in high demand, creating custom portraits of the stars for the stars.
In 2006, with royal country music blood running through his veins, Frizzell came full circle being named Nashville’s Artist to the Stars for his artistic collaboration with some of Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, Americana and Roots music's biggest names, including George Jones, Randy Travis, Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Mark Newton, Carl Jackson, Mark Chesnutt, Gene Watson and Jerrod Niemann to name a few.
