CHICKEN SALAD CHICK FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES VANDERBILT-INGRAM CANCER CENTER
AMONG BENEFICIARIES OF
INAUGURAL
MUSIC & MIRACLES SUPERFEST
HELD AT JORDAN-HARE STADIUM 
Featuring: Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt & Old Dominion

75-Year-Old Football Venue to Hold First Stadium Concert 
on Chesney's 2016 Tour
AUBURN, Ala. (March 15, 2016) - The Chicken Salad Chick Foundation has named Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (VICC) as one of the beneficiaries of funds raised at the inaugural Music & Miracles Superfest.

The mission of Music & Miracles Superfest is to bring the biggest entertainers in America to one of the most notable venues in the Southeast. Proceeds from the concert will be targeted to fighting cancer and feeding the hungry.

Music & Miracles Superfest, Saturday, April 23, marks the kickoff for Kenny Chesney's 2016 Tour. The only country artist on Billboard's Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years, the man The Wall Street Journal deemed "The King of the Road" will be joined by six-time Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert, Grammy-nominated newcomer Sam Hunt and hit-writer driven breakout band Old Dominion.
 
Stacy Brown, President and Co-Founder of the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation, who lost her husband Kevin Brown (Co-Founder of Chicken Salad Chick) to cancer last November, noted "Music & Miracles Superfest was Kevin's dream. While in the midst of his battle against cancer, Kevin chose not to ask 'why me?' but rather 'why not?!'  Kevin asked boldly, 'Why not start a Foundation? Why not have a concert at Jordan-Hare Stadium? Why not ask Kenny Chesney to play it? And why not try and raise a million dollars in a single day to give to those who are in need?' Kevin will have the best seat in the house to watch this dream come true on April 23."
 
The CSC Foundation Board identified Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, one of the top 10 cancer centers in America in grant support, to be one of the concert beneficiaries. As a leader in new discoveries in cancer research, VICC's world-renowned team of experts provides an integrated, personalized and patient-centered approach to cancer care, including treatment, research, support, education and outreach.
 
Scott Hiebert, Ph.D., Associate Director of Basic Science Research and Shared Resources at VICC, said, "We are so honored to be named one of the beneficiaries of this one-of-a-kind concert. We thank Stacy Brown and the entire CSC Foundation and Board for their belief in the innovative work being done at VICC. We wake up every day and dream big as we strive to make landmark discoveries and breakthroughs in cancer research. Our goals align perfectly with Kevin Brown's legacy and the mission of Music & Miracles."

JOHN ANDERSON TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE PENNED BY MERLE HAGGARD

COUNTRY LEGEND JOHN ANDERSON TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE PENNED BY MERLE HAGGARD
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 15, 2016) – Country chart-topper John Anderson's new single "Magic Mama," penned by Merle Haggard just for Anderson, is now impacting radio. The feel-good anthem is the latest single from Anderson’s critically acclaimed album, Goldmine, which was listed as one of Rolling Stone’s “40 Best Country Albums of 2015.”

When speaking about the song, Haggard said, “It was recorded in an excellent way. Just the way I pictured it.”

“A couple of years ago I got a call from Merle saying that he had written a song with me in mind. I saw him about six months later and asked if he finished it,” Anderson said. “He pulled out a little piece of paper from his back pocket that had the lyrics on it, and he got a guitar and played it for me. That’s probably one of the greatest moments of my career, sitting there listening to Merle play that song that he had written for me.” He adds, “I was so pleased and I’m so thrilled to have a brand new Merle Haggard song on the latest cd. ‘Magic Mama,’ for me, will always be a treasure.”

The song showcases Anderson’s distinct vocals, which has made him one of the most sought-after artists in country music. Fans can catch Anderson on tour (see tour dates below), where he will be performing “Magic Mama.” The country hit-maker will also be playing other tracks off of the Goldmine album, along with his signature hits like “Swingin’” and “Seminole Wind.”

About John Anderson:
Raised in Apopka, Fla., Anderson was exposed to both rock and traditional country growing up and, as incendiary rock outfits like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Lynyrd Skynyrd honed their chops around him, learned to love (and play) both types of music. But Anderson resisted the call of rock 'n roll, electing rather to pursue his country music dreams. It was the traditional country ballads that lured him in and changes music history, songs like Porter Waggoner's "Green, Green Grass of Home."

Anderson moved to Nashville in 1972, working construction by day (including as a roofer at the Grand Ole Opry House) and playing the honky-tonks at night. He signed to Warner Bros. in 1977, and notching his first major hit in 1980 with Billy Jo Shaver's "I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I'm Gonna Be a Diamond Someday)." Other hits, including the classic "Wild and Blue" in 1982, solidified his status as a powerful new voice in country music. "Swingin'," written by Anderson and Lionel Delmore, blew the roof off a year later, exploding to No.1 on the Billboard Country chart, propelling Anderson to the CMA Horizon Award, and becoming one of the most enduring hits in the country canon.

Anderson plowed through the ebbs and flows of country music (and the country music business) throughout the '80s, and in the early 1990s engineered one of the greatest "comeback" runs (he never really left) in the history of the genre. Seminole Wind, released on BNA, produced hit singles in "Straight Tequila Night," "When It Comes To You," "Money in the Bank," and the stirring title cut. The latter would have never been released had Anderson not stuck to his guns, a familiar refrain throughout his career as the artist has wound his way through virtually all of Nashville's major labels.

Despite his music biz travails, Anderson, who has made his home in Smithville, TN, for more than 30 years, is far from a bitter man. Rather, he feels more than blessed, and subscribes to the mentality expressed in Goldmine’s compelling “Don’t forget to Thank the Lord.”
