Country Stars Rocking Ronnie’s Barn

Ronnie Dunn’s barn will be burning Thursday night (Oct. 18). Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, Sara Evans and others will perform at “Rocking the Barn,” a sold-out show in a barn on Dunn’s property in Nashville. The event benefits the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers’ (ASCAP) Legislative Fund for the Arts. The goal is to help the performance rights organization raise money to fly songwriters to Washington, D.C., where they would lobby lawmakers on issues affecting the protection of their copyrights. U.S. senators Orrin Hatch, Fred Thompson and Bill Frist will be at Dunn’s barn to lend their support. 10/18/01
