The buzz about the once-a-month Songwriters Night at Billy’s Sports Grill Northport hosted by Nashville songwriter, Hope Cassity, is constantly growing along with the crowd in attendance. Not only have the crowds grown, but the list of unbelievably talented songwriters keeps getting longer. You never know who you might see performing at #TipsForTuscaloosa. So far over six thousand dollars have been raised for various charities like Arts N Autism, the Tuscaloosa Preservation Society, and the Humane Society of West Alabama. The Humane society event was really cool and encouraged spectators to bring their dogs with them and enjoy their “Pups on the Patio”. There were an abundance of pups in attendance that night in June and Billy’s has since seen a number of pups return to their favorite outdoor dining spot!
The next Tips for Tuscaloosa will take place on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 and is benefiting the Nick’s Kids Fund. The #NicksKidsFund is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children, family, teacher, and student causes. Nick and Terry Saban dedicate time to the Nick’s Kids Fund by executing multiple events throughout the year, as well as conducting day-to-day activities to keep the charity alive. Nick’s Kids is the official charity of Nick Saban and his family. Nick’s Kids Fund supports many organizations throughout the year, but focuses mainly on their annual giveaway in the fall. During this event Nick & Terry Saban distribute funds for the year to very gracious and deserving organizations.
The line up for that night already includes the following artists: Hope Cassity, Jackson Capps, John Miller, Brian Futch, Tori & Craig Wilson, Victoria Camp (broadcast live from the studio in Nashville), and a special guest songwriter, Sean Gasaway, who is also the Vice President of Verastar Records! Now the listed names are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many others that will be joining in the entertainment that night and if you are a songwriter that would like to perform, there is an open mic portion of the show and sign up is at 5:30PM.
If you want to get a sneak listen of the talent, tune into 95.3 The Bear the days leading up to the event and you may just hear a live on-air performance from one of the artists. The Bear will also be at Billy’s that night and will be doing call-ins during the event.
Don’t miss this awesome event and your chance to give back to something good in our Tuscaloosa community.
