Wednesday night at the Gibson Guitar Showroom in South Austin, Grounded in Music’s 2012 Benefit Concert line-up brought us some big names in Country music. Jack Ingram headlining and co-headlining was Hayes Carll. Savannah Berry opened the show, which was then kicked off with a performance by Grounded in Music’s young students and beneficiaries. An inspiring night of music and a rare opportunity to see some of these performers in an intimate setting.
Jack and Hayes have a great rapport and shared some funny stories with us about growing up in the same suburb in north Houston.
Savannah Berry is just 17 years old and a native of Houston, Texas. A powerful and graceful performer, no doubt we will be hearing a lot more from her.
When I spoke with Savannah Berry about why she wanted to be a part of the Grounded in Music Benefit, she said “I wanted to do something good for kids and this benefit spoke to my heart”. “If she had not had music in her own life as a creative outlet, she wouldn’t have had the rich life experiences that come from this passion”. She believes “music brings a heart to heart connection to people and it is a great honor to be a part of this benefit”. Savannah Berry is a testament that music does shape lives.
