The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is proud to announce multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning singer, author and actress LeAnn Rimes as the headlining performer for their Songwriters Music Series Napa presented by William Hill Estate Wines and Raymond Weil. The event will take place on Thursday, September 20th from 6:30 – 10:00 PM at the storied William Hill Estate in Napa, California and follows the April 2012 kick-off with Award-winning soul singer-songwriter Robin Thicke this past April in Chicago, IL. Napa marks the second stop in the series, which is also set to return to New York City this October on Halloween night.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation’s Songwriters Music Series,” said LeAnn Rimes. “Music is such an important part of my life and I’m happy to help spread awareness about the incredible work VH1 Save The Music is doing to keep music education programs in our schools. I look forward to a great show!”
The renowned Songwriters Music Series, which originally featured performances by Rob Thomas, Jewel, The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo), Darius Rucker, BeBe Winans, Cyndi Lauper and more, re-launched in 2011. The newly designed Series offers a unique platform for energized and socially conscious professionals to network amidst great music, a sponsored bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. Each event features an up close and personal acoustic performance with chart-topping artists and up-and-coming musicians. Past performers for the revitalized Songwriters Music Series include: Glee star Matthew Morrison, ACM Award-winning sibling trio The Band Perry, Grammy® Award winning musician Colbie Caillat and Billboard Magazine’s “2011 Artist To Watch” Andy Grammer. Since the 2011 launch, the Songwriters Music Series has raised over $388,000, which continues to help restore 12 music education programs nationwide.
