Photos & Video: Luke Bryan Headlined BrightStone’s Annual Dinner and Concert

On Tuesday evening, BrightStone hosted their annual songwriter event where four-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan was the featured artist at its Music That Touches the Heart event presented by STAR Physical Therapy at the Factory in Franklin. A record-breaking $225,000 was raised.

It was a one-man show for Bryan – just him and his guitar on stage. He shared some of his biggest hits like ‘Huntin’ Fishin’ Lovin’ Every Day,’ ‘Play it Again’ and ending with the Brightstone students joining him on ‘Most People are Good.’

Other performers donating their time and talent to help raise money for BrightStone this year are Grammy Award Winning Songwriter Gordon Kennedy and the newly formed duo Seals and Crofts 2. The duo consists of Grammy Nominated Songwriter/ASCAP Triple Play Award winner and former 6-year member, keyboardist and co-lead vocalist of the multi-platinum group Little Texas, Brady Seals and the soulful vocals of Lua Crofts, daughter of Dash Crofts.

BrightStone’s Music That Touches the Heart, an annual event now in its 17th year, is known for hosting outstanding performers in an intimate setting for the purpose of raising money to support adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in Middle Tennessee.

The nonprofit recently purchased property and will begin the process of developing it to provide housing for adults with special needs. During the event, they paid the remaining balance owed on the property so that construction can begin on the site for the next phase of development.
