On Nov. 6, the Frank Brown Songwriters’ Festival will pay tribute to Nashville’s legendary producer Larry Butler with a special concert at the University of West Florida Mainstage Theater. The benefit show is promoted as “Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Show” featuring five members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Tickets are $20 and available through the UWF Box Office.
The proceeds will go to the UWF Larry Butler Memorial Music Scholarship, a fund his wife Peggy established earlier this year to help fund UWF Music Department student expenses and trips. If you can’t attend the show, please consider a donation to the fund.
On Monday, I had on “Pensacola Speaks” songwriter Dave Goodenough, who helped Larry write his autobiography —“Just for the Record.” Dave tells the famous Johnny Cash-Butler brick tale.
