Reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Brothers Osborne, all-around entertainer Mac Davis and ACM and NSAI Song of the Year winner Natalie Hemby will take the stage at Nashville’s City Winery on February 28, 2018 to perform the very first and the very worst songs they ever wrote, in addition to their biggest hits, all in support of Music Health Alliance. “The First And The Worst,” now in its fourth year, is a one-of-a-kind event only Nashville can deliver as our greatest talents come together to showcase their silliest and most shameful songs, all while competing for the audience-voted “Crappy” trophy.

Two-time Grammy nominees Brothers Osborne (“Stay A Little Longer,” “It Ain’t My Fault”), actor, songwriter and ACM Entertainer of the Year winner Mac Davis (“In The Ghetto,” “A Little Less Conversation”) and award-winning songwriter and PUXICO singer Natalie Hemby (“Pontoon,” “Automatic”) will headline 2018’s “The First And The Worst.” Hosted by Grammy nominated producer/songwriter/music critic, Peter Cooper, this unique event allows the audience to peek inside the brilliant minds of hit songwriters long before they had ever written a chart-topper or had songs recorded by superstar artists, all for a worthy cause.
