TAPS and Its Nashville Songwriter Friends

Last night I attended the first event in the weekend-long series of events in the Denver area which supports the work of TAPS. The performance was hosted by Gary Morris and featured four of the best songwriters from Nashville, Rob Crosby, Brett Jones, Billy Montana and Greg Barnhill , along with special appearances by Jimmie Rodgers and Terry Cashman . (And Pete Coors on spoons!) I have been to a lot of benefits, but I have never seen so much talent play so informally in such a manner and to such effect. If this event had been produced for television, it would draw an enormous enormous and not just because the singers-songwriters are so talented, but because they are all so obviously good hearted towards the children, spouses and parents of those who have given their lives in the war.

TAPS was unknown to me until Thursday, but it will become obvious to you as it did to me that it fills a crucial role in supporting the families of the fallen. Hats off to Gary Morris, Bo and Lynn Cottrell, TriWest and the rest of the sponsors for organizing these events for the past three years, and mark your calenders for next year’s weekend.
