|Nashville, Tenn. – On Tuesday, November 12th, T. Graham Brown will join Steve Cropper along with legendary musicians Brian May (Queen), Joe Walsh (The Eagles), Sammy Hagar, Mickey Dolenz (The Monkees), Jason Scheff (longtime lead vocalist of Chicago), Paul Shaffer (The Late Show with David Letterman), Albert Lee, The Imperials, John Carter Cash and more at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center for James Burton and Friends — a historic concert event benefiting the James Burton Foundation.|
“Besides being one of the greatest guitar players, songwriters and producers of all time, Steve Cropper is a sweetheart. We have been friends for almost 40 years and have worked together many times” says T. Graham Brown. “He played on my last album and I can’t wait to sing “Soul Man” with him one more time at the tribute to James Burton. James has crashed our show before, we go back three decades and it is an honor to honor him. This show will be one for the ages!”
T. Graham will also perform “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Blues” with Paul Shaffer, Caroline Jones, and Skunk Baxter.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the James Burton Foundation by helping give the gift of music and guitars to school programs, hospitals for children and veterans groups nationwide.
