Camille Rae to Bring Album Songwriters Together to Support the Global Non-Profit March of Dimes
Country recording artist Camille Rae will bring together esteemed songwriters Fred Wilhelm and Keith Dozier, featured on her sophomore album Come Find Me, in support of the international non-profit organization March of Dimes at The Country (110 28th Ave N) on Monday, December 4th at 6 p.m.
The show will open with an acoustic round featuring Fred Wilhelm (Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Lori McKenna) who co-wrote Rae’s “Chills” as well as the winner of the 2013 NSAI/CMT’s Song Contest, Keith Dozier (Montgomery Gentry), the sole writer of Rae’s “Who Broke My Heart”. Rae will join the two for performances before kicking off the full band portion of the night.
A personal supporter of March of Dimes’ mission, “a fighting chance for every baby,” Rae encourages all attendees of the show to wear purple and bring their holiday spirit in order to raise awareness and funds for the number one life threatening occurrence, premature birth.
“March of Dimes is an unbelievably dedicated organization that is near and dear to my heart,” said Rae. “It is because of their love and commitment to each and every baby and their families, that lives are lived to the fullest and these sweet babies get a chance to bless this world with all they’re meant to be and accomplish.”
Rae became involved with March of Dimes through The Tate Family of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Their daughter, Madelyn, was born at 24 weeks and is thriving today because of March of Dimes’ charitable efforts.
The Country will also welcome March of Dimes ambassadors, who will be onsite to share information and personal experience as well as accept donations for the holiday season. For more information on March of Dimes, please visit www.marchofdimes.org.
