The Birthplace of Country Music (BCM) announces a concert series where, when it comes to ticket access, friends come first. The Friends of 1927 Concert Series features Karla Bonoff April 25, Paul Thorn June 20, and Jonathan Edwards August 8 in the Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. A fourth concert, slated for October, has yet to be announced.

"We compare them to house parties," said Leah Ross, executive director of Birthplace of Country Music. "They are very intimate performances where food and cocktails are served and fans get to interact with the artists. We reach out to all of our Friends of 1927 contributors first as a way of thanking them for their support."

About Paul Thorn
Back by popular demand, Paul Thorn returns for his third Friends of 1927 Concert event. The witty and charismatic boxer-turned-singer/songwriter brings his distinctly southern brand of blues rock back to Bristol with samplings from his latest release, Too Blessed to Be Stressed. "In the past I've told stories that were mostly inspired by my own life," said Thorn. "This time, I've written 10 songs that express more universal truths, and I've done it with a purpose: to make people feel good." www.paulthorn.com
