New Violin Donated to Nashville Notes Music Program During Grammy Party

The Nashville Notes Homeschool Band was presented with a brand new violin, Sunday night, at the Hollywood Meets Nashville Grammy Viewing Party and Benefit Gala.   The Nashville Notes Homeschool Band was founded in 1995 to provide music instruction for students schooled at home in the Greater Nashville area.  “We’re very thankful for this donation,” says program director, Sholeen Wuest. “We have 170 kids in the program, and very few instruments for those who can’t afford to purchase their own.  This instrument will be put to good use.”

Buddy Jewell quickly rose to fame in 2003 as the first winner of USA Network’s “Nashville Star.” His hits include “Help Pour Out the Rain (Lacey’s Song)” and “Sweet Southern Comfort.” He is a diverse and charismatic performer, with an extensive fan base which extends well beyond the country and gospel genres. From children to NFL players, Buddy appeals to music fans of all ages, from all walks of life. His recent video “Reason to Read” (with Patty Loveless) has even become a success with the youngsters who watch PBS’ award winning educational show, “Between the Lions.”

J. Karen Thomas currently stars as Audrey Carlisle on the hit ABC series, “Nashville.” A dedicated actress, she also enjoyed a stint on “Drop Dead Diva” and recently completed the Ashley Judd vehicle, “Identical” and “Boulevard” with Robin Williams.  J. Karen has a passion for music and her new CD, “Love Just Happens” is a romantic collage of jazz, pop, standards and spiritual originals.

Montrel Darrett began singing as a child, wrote his first song at four, and formed his first group, the True Notes, with his siblings as a teenager. Montrel later joined the award winning gospel group Commissioned, and performed and recorded with them for a number of years. Montrel left the group to pursue a solo career in 1999.  He also writes and produces for other gospel acts including Virtue, Sharon Riley, and Faith Chorale.

Bridgette Tatum is no stranger to the top of the country charts.  She wrote the 2009 Jason Aldean hit, “She’s Country”.  Her song, “Loud” was recorded by Big & Rich and was the theme music for John Rich’s reality show, “Gone Country.” Bridgette hit the charts herself with “I Like My Cowboys Dirty” and “Hillbilly Rockstar” and recently toured with Heidi Neufield.
