The “I Am a Woman” Benefit Concert has been postponed due to hazardous weather and road conditions in Nashville.
Lorrie Morgan organized the benefit concert for long time industry veteran, friend and comrade in music, Ms. Debbie Ballentine.
With the loving support and strength from family and friends, Ballentine has been bravely fighting her battle with cancer since Fall 2011. After completing various treatments and courses of radiation therapy, results have not been optimum; there is no cure for Ballentine’s condition. The family’s medical bills incurred during her illness are insurmountable.
Lorrie Morgan, Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Jesse Keith Whitley, Ashlee Hewitt, TG Sheppard, Kelly Lang and Baillie and The Boys will donate their time and talents to support Ballentine at the I AM A WOMAN benefit concert in her honor. The charity event will be held at Silver Dollar Saloon (110 2nd Avenue North, Nashville, TN) and was supposed to be held tonight, Wednesday, February 18, 2015. A reschedule date will be released soon.
