Twelve time Grammy-award winning country and folk icon Emmylou Harris is sharing her passion for pet adoption and animal-rescue as she hosts her second annual WOOFSTOCK 2013 during the week of CMA Music Festival at the Fontanel Mansion in Nashville, TN.
Woofstock is a charity event, where all proceeds benefit dog-rescue organization Bonaparte’s Retreat and community outreach program Crossroads Campus, whose storefront operation Shop & Adopt recently opened in Germantown.

This all-day concert event includes a performance by Emmylou Harris, as well as other artists and songwriters which will be announced soon. Admission is open to the public and tickets can be purchased for a $20 donation either the day of the event or pre-sale by going to http://bonapartesretreat.org/ and www.fontanelmansion.com/.
