Logan County is playing host to the Nashville Hitmakers this weekend.
The Hitmakers are in town to do a show to benefit the Holland Theatre and the Indian Lake Watershed Project.
Sandy Helgeson speaks about the show.
Kris Swisher explains the impact on the Holland.
Indian Lake graduate Even Stevens will be the headliner for the Saturday night show. It will be his first time performing in Logan County. Stevens says he is a little nervous about the show, but is excited to be performing in the Holland.
Stevens discusses how he feels to be performing in Logan County.
Stevens is joined by six other songwriters. All seven are award winners.
Mike Reid was a Cincinnati Bengals All-Pro defensive lineman before his songwriting career started. One of his well-known songs is Stranger in My House recorded by Ronnie Milsap.
Scotty Emerick is best known for his work with Toby Keith writing songs like I Love This Bar and Beer for My Horses.
Leslie Satcher is a native Texan and wrote the George Strait hit, Troubadour. (Satcher pictured above talking with show supporters at a reception Friday night at Longview Cove).
Satcher comments about her career and what it's like to do a show.
Mike Loudermilk is the son of country songwriter John Loudermilk. He began his career when Chet Atkins recorded one of his instrumental songs.
Rebecca Lynn Howard performed Softly and Tenderly for the soundtrack to the Robert Duvall film, The Apostle.
Richard Leigh is the writer of Crystal Gayle's song, Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.
The seven performers will do the show in a "songwriter-in-the-round" format, meaning they will explain where they got the inspiration to write their songs.
The artists complimented the Holland Theatre for its beauty and excellent sound system.
The award-winning talent is expected to bring in a large crowd for the 7 pm show.
A meet and greet will be held at Chattan Loch after the show for attendees who purchased $100 tickets to the show.
Music for the meet and greet will be performed by former Bellefontaine residents, The Kent Burnside Trio. The band features Kent, father; Mina, daughter; and Bennett, son. The family moved to Nashville seven years ago.
