Charlie Worsham is ready for his close-up. The 31-year-old Mississippi native moved to Nashville 10 years ago after attending Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music. He's been a favorite of country music insiders ever since. Worsham released his first solo album, Rubber Band, in 2013; now, he's offering his second, Beginning Of Things, out April 21. Beginning Of Things is one of the most intelligent and skillfully crafted albums of the year so far. It's also pure fun; Worsham is as great with a joke as he is with a guitar or a banjo. Part of the new generation that's reviving the best elements of country music — its intense songcraft, great playing and generous heart — Worsham will be making major waves in 2017.

The Acorn Society of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee will host its first quarterly meeting featuring special guest speakers TBA on Tuesday, August 22. Attendees will learn about philanthropy, how to give back to the community and how to be engaged with making a difference in Middle Tennessee. The Acorn Society’s mission is to engage, educate and empower the next generation of philanthropist. It is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee dedicated to the idea that it does not take great wealth to meaningfully and beneficially impact its community. This member-based fund holds quarterly meetings that feature a social and educational component around certain issue areas of philanthropy. The goal is to allow members to guide their own philanthropy - based upon their interests - and give exposure to smaller, local nonprofits where members’ efforts can make the most impact. [less-]
