Nationally-syndicated radio personality Shawn Parr is bringing a couple of his close friends, country music star Scotty McCreery and singer and former Nashville star Charles Esten, to the Tour’s Nashville Golf Open in May. One lucky person will be able to join this star-studded group.

“I’ve lived in Williamson County for more than five years and have been looking for a great event that I could become a part of,” said Parr, host of Cumulus Media’s NASH Nights Live. “Working with the Nashville Golf Open combines a couple of my passions: golf and raising money for the T.J. Martel Foundation.”

Parr, who serves on the Nashville board of directors for T.J. Martel Foundation, has partnered with the golf tournament on three fundraisers.
