This April 23, 2010 in celebration of Roy Orbison’s 74th birthday, the Hard Rock Cafe Nashville will host a benefit bash for the wonderful charity Musicians On Call. Barbara Orbison will be joined by family, friends and fans as musicians including Harold Bradley & Mallary Hope, Rodney Crowell, Chris Rodriguez & Eden’s Edge, Jeffrey Steele, JD Souther, Sweethearts of the Rodeo, plus Surprise Guests perform songs spanning Roy’s 5 decade career. The acclaimed Texan was a pioneer of rock and roll and is one of the very few artists to have been accepted by the world in all forms of popular music. Roy is also one of the exceptional artists to have won Grammys in pop, rock and roll and country categories. His Hits, including Ooby Dooby, Oh Pretty Woman, Only The Lonely, Blue Bayou, Crying, It’s Over, In Dreams, You Got It and Handle with Care (as a Traveling Wilbury with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne) is woven into the fabric of our global psyche, forever living in our hearts and our minds and capturing the imagination of new fans daily. Funds raised through the event will create a dedicated “Roy Orbison” program at the Bordeaux Long Term Care Facility.
