Smith performed a selection of his most well-known hit songs, including a patriotic video montage in remembrance of 9/11 “There She Stands” and closed with his heartfelt blockbuster hit “Friends.” Smith was also recently honored by Gifford, Greenwood, and Mullen in Nashville for his 35th anniversary of ‘Friends’.
“What an honor it was to be asked for a second year in a row to perform for some of the most powerful women in our nation’s capital,” said Greenwood. “I was overjoyed to sing at the bipartisan Congressional Club’s luncheon for the First Lady, and to hear more about the great Be Best program she has launched to help children within our borders and around the world.”
The First Lady posted to social media following the event: “Honored to take part in the 107th First Lady’s Luncheon today hosted by the Congressional Club.

BUCKLE, Tenn. – Little town, BIG
announcement! The Bell Buckle Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to announce that
award winning Nashville music icon T. Graham Brown and his amazing wife, Sheila
Brown, will serve as this year’s RC Cola and MoonPie King and Queen!
His “T-ness” as he is many times lovingly referred to, began his musical
journey in Georgia and was quickly nominated for a Grammy as well as earning
CMA awards, the Addy Award for Excellence in Advertising, and a back to back
Prism Award winning chart topper. As a recording artist, songwriter, performer
and producer, T. Graham Brown has scored multiple number one songs in the
country, blues, and gospel. He has hit the Billboard, Cash Box, and Christian
music charts 35 times with hits such as “I Tell It Like It Used To Be,” self
penned “Hell and High Water,” and “Darlene”. He also wrote the multiple award
winning song, “Wine into Water”, which has been recorded over a hundred times
by artists all over the world, most recently by country music star Loretta Lynn
on her latest critically acclaimed album, ‘Full Circle.’
T. Graham has performed on the iconic stage of the Grand Ole Opry hundreds of
times and maintains a busy touring schedule all over the United States and
Europe. He will tell you with a grin, “I’ve got a band and a bus, and I’ll keep
taking the music to the people as long as God lets me. It’s what I love to do!”
Sheila was born in Fort Benning, Georgia and is the daughter of an Air Force
pilot. She and T met in Georgia at college. The couple moved to Nashville after
college so T. Graham could sing.
Sheila says, “We decided we would go the ‘Big Adventure’ of the country music
business together, and we’re still on it. Our son, Acme, was born and lives in
Nashville. We love Nashville and the music business, and our life here. We
continue to travel all over the country and the world with our show. We feel
very blessed to be able to do what we do. We think we have the best job in the
world… we get to make people happy with music!”
“Being the 25th Annual MoonPie King, and Sheila being the Queen, is one of
the highest honors to the Brown Family,” says T. Graham. “Filling the
boots of Waylon and Jessi will not be easy, however we shall give it our all.
The legendary combination of the mighty MoonPie and RC Cola is unsurpassed in
the lore of the south. Come to historic Bell Buckle, Tennessee to partake in
the unparalleled hospitality and taste these classic treats. Long live the
MoonPie and RC Cola!”

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Memphis is recognized worldwide as the “home of the Blues” and the “birthplace of Rock ‘N’ Roll,” and Graceland’s Father’s Day weekend celebration will feature multi-platinum, legendary singer and songwriter Don McLean, who will perform on the Soundstage at Graceland on Saturday, June 15.
“I will be at Graceland for a Fathers Day concert and I will sing ‘And I Love You So,’ a song I wrote which Elvis sang during the last year of his life,” said McLean. “It also appears on his album, Today, released in 1975.”
Throughout the weekend, guests will be treated to tours of the iconic Graceland mansion, Elvis Presley’s Memphis™ entertainment complex and experience the brand-new Graceland Exhibition Center featuring three fantastic exhibits: Muhammad Ali: Greatest of All Time, Memphis Music Legends and A Century of the American Motorcycle. To purchase tickets, please visit GracelandLive.com/don-mclean.
Since first hitting the charts in 1971, Don McLean has amassed over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and, in 2004, was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. Classic hits like “American Pie”, “Vincent (Starry Starry Night)”, “Castles in the Air”, “And I Love You So”, “Crossroads” and “The Grave” propelled McLean into the mainstream. Many of his songs have been recorded and sung by musicians from every genre, including Madonna‘s No. 1 recording of “American Pie” in 2000, George Michael’s rendition of “The Grave” in 2003, and James Blake’s version of “Vincent (Starry Starry Night).”
Having recently honored the 60th anniversary of Buddy Holly’s death, and receiving Million-Air certifications from BMI for over 5 million certified airplays of “American Pie” and 3 million certified airplays for “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” McLean continues to bring his classic hit songs to stages around the world.

About Don McLean:
A New York native, Don McLean is one of the most revered and respected songwriters in American history. After paying his dues in the New York club scene in the late ‘60s, he went on to score mega-hits like “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air” and many more. In 2004, McLean was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame by country superstar Garth Brooks. In 2000, “American Pie” was named one of the Top 5 Songs of the 20th Century by the RIAA and in 2002 was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame. In 2015, one of McLean’s four handwritten manuscripts of the lyrics to “American Pie” was auctioned by Christies, selling for just over $1.2 Million. 2017 brought a huge honor when his iconic song was inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, joining less than 500 works including “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, McLean’s prowess for writing timeless songs was again captured on his 2018 album, Botanical Gardens, as he artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for.

The Gemini award-winning comedian saw most of his U.S. shows SELL OUT to enthusiastic crowds
Red Green’s fall tour in his homeland of Canada will include more than 30 shows, kicking off September 20 in Red Deer, Alberta
POSSUM LAKE, Ontario — Comedian Steve Smith, better known as Red Green, from the beloved Gemini Award-winning comedy series The Red Green Show, has announced the addition of several new dates for his ‘This Could Be It!’ fall tour throughout Canada, with more shows to be announced. Kicking off September 20 in Red Deer, Alberta, Red Green embarks on his final journey throughout his homeland, with a coast-to-coast trek that will culminate on October 29, in Halifax, N.S.
“I know it’s called ‘This Could Be It’ tour, but if I was a betting man, I’d put my money on ‘This Is Pretty Much Definitely It,’” said Smith.
Fans of all ages have flocked to the various performance halls and theaters to take part in the final ‘Lodge Meetings’ throughout the U.S. With the majority of these meetings selling out, the hapless handyman has once again instilled countless laughs upon the smiling faces of his loyal fans, as he bids his final farewell.
“The ticket sales have been great, but the biggest impact is the chance to say goodbye to my friends face-to-face, and to hear the heart-warming stories of how this silly little show has helped people’s lives,” Smith accounted. “That’s the part I’ll remember forever.”
The master of misadventure continues his latest one man road show throughout Canada this fall. It features some brand new handyman projects, advice to married guys and teenage boys, tips on getting old, and an apology to the world on behalf of all baby boomers. Special contributions from other cast members, talking animals, and a final wish from Red Green to all of his loyal fans, are also on the meeting agenda.
“I’d like to also thank my fans, the media, and anyone who has supported me along the way,” said Smith. “I couldn’t do any of this without you!”

About The Red Green Show:
The Red Green Show is a unique half-hour comedy series targeted at family audiences, with the purpose of entertaining and providing an escape from the pressures of urban living.
Set way up north at the infamous Possum Lodge, The Red Green Show is a hilarious insight into men, their dreams, and their obsessions. It’s a show for anyone who thinks God created man to give the rest of the world something to laugh at!
Steve Smith plays the acerbic, dry-witted Red Green, lodge leader and host of the show that takes special aim at the yet unexplored humorous side of the male ego and other inflatables. Pat McKenna plays Harold, Red’s techno-geek nephew, and Rick Green (no relation to Red) is the klutzy naturalist Bill. Each week they pass the time bonding, adventuring, entrepreneuring and basically keeping the eight-year-old in them alive and well.
