In true Nashville community fashion, friends, family, and fans came together last week to the Wild Horse Saloon to honor the memory of music industry veteran Debby Ballentine.
She was a friend and a personal assistant to Lorrie Morgan for 20 years. Sadly Ms Ballentine lost her battle with cancer this year on February 1st of this year. Her medical bills to fight this disease are astronomical. So this event was also a fund raiser to assist the family in paying the these expenses. Lorrie Morgan was the host and Nan Kelly of Great American Country served as Emcee. All of the bands and performers donated their time and talent to the show. Artists who took to the stage included: Lorrie Morgan, Jesse Keith Whitley, Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Tracy Lawrence, Exile, Jamey Johnson, Ballie and the Boys, George Ducas, Daryl Worley, T.G. Shepard and Kelly Lang, and Ashley Hewitt.
