“I’m excited for ‘The First And The Worst’ to return again this year,” said Music Health Alliance Founder and 2015 Nashville Healthcare Hero, Tatum Hauck Allsep. “It’s a fun event for the fans and the music industry loves it too! Everyone comes out to cheer and jeer their fellow musicians, all while supporting Music Health Alliance’s advocacy work on behalf of their peers.”
“The First And The Worst” – an evening of really bad songs by really good writers – will showcase songwriters Alexander, Braddock, Brice and Stapleton as they divulge their the stories and the songs that led to their biggest hits. Hosted by esteemed journalist and music historian, Peter Cooper, this unique event allows the audience to peek inside the brilliant minds of hit songwriters long before they had ever written a chart-topper or had songs recorded by superstar artists, all for a worthy cause. More acts are expected to announce at a later date.
