Concert to benefit gift program

By Staff Reports

Rock ‘n’ roll is once again riding to the rescue of needy Maury County children at Christmas.

The Scott Holt Band and Natalie Stovall will headline the sixth annual Have a Blues Christmas concert Saturday, Dec. 11, at American Legion Post 19, 812 Nashville Highway in Columbia. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The concert is a benefit for the Community Christmas Card, which provides Christmas gifts to Maury County children whose family income falls below federal poverty guidelines.

Sponsor tickets are $50 and include reserve seating, a meal and each sponsor’s name listed on the show’s commemorative T-shirts and the program video. A limited number of general admission tickets will be available for $25.

Tickets are available at Jenkins Automotive, 2702 Trotwood Ave., Columbia. Reservations can be made and more information can be obtained by contacting Keith Throneberry at (931) 381-1745 or iceman@xtreme4x4.net.


Throneberry, whose Columbia Xtreme 4X4 Club sponsors the event, said a late start, the bad economy and other factors nearly sidelined plans for this year’s concert.

“But I think it’s important to keep it going for the kids,” he said.

Last year’s concert raised $11,020 for the Community Christmas Card, bringing its five-year total donations to about $50,000.

Christmas Card Board Member Chris Fletcher said it would be extremely difficult for the charity to reach its goal — this year set at $65,000 — without the Have a Blues Christmas concert.

“It seems like every year Scott, Natalie, Keith and friends raise more money, and every year we receive more applications from needy families,” Fletcher said. “This December, with high unemployment lingering in our community, we will need them more than ever.”

Holt performs nearly 200 shows a year and has toured throughout the world sharing the stage with some of rock’s royalty, including The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. For 10 years he toured with his mentor, blues legend Buddy Guy, who asked him to join his band not long after Holt graduated from Columbia Central High School.

Natalie Stovall and her band will again join Holt for the event. Stovall, who has performed at the White House and at major events and venues throughout the country, electrifies audiences with her guitar- and fiddle-playing and tremendous vocal skills.

The Community Christmas Card one part of a three-pronged charity managed by volunteers and collectively known as the Maury County Community Christmas Program.

The Christmas Card provides gift vouchers redeemable only for gifts for children under age 17 from local merchants.

Participants in the Angel Tree program take the name of a child from Angel Trees located at area businesses. After purchasing and wrapping the gifts, they return them to any Angel Tree host business. These gifts are then given to the children a few days before Christmas at the Ridley 4-H Center distribution point.

The Adopt-A-Family program allows benefactors to purchase and deliver gifts to the children of a needy family they select from a list available for review during the first week of December.

Contributions to the Community Christmas Card Program may be sent to Community Christmas Card Program, P.O. Box 1425, Columbia, TN 38402 or dropped off at The Daily Herald, 1115 S. Main St., during regular business hours, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The Community Christmas Card Program is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. All donations to the program are tax deductible.

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

Hay : )

With all your talent they must have furgot tin to mention how amazingly purty you is !!

I hope you'll watch the new cable movie called Valentine's Day. Taylor Swift is one of many stars and one of her segments she is so funny in her role as a high school dance team member.

I don't want to say too much but be looking for the part where she shows the TV camera man how she dances. I never imagined she could be such a trememdous comedian in addition to her beeyoutea and musical skills.

With what I just said about Taylor I guess I just cheated on you agin so I will close by appologizing, and as Chaka Chan sings, I'll change the words a little and say :

"Oh, Oh, Oh, Ooo-oh, Ain't nobody, sings looking purtier, makes me happy, makes me feel good like you" !!!!
