Singer/songwriter and Nashville native Brandon Heath has organized a benefit show to help aid his neighbors in Macon County, and the city of Lafayette, Tenn., devastated by the deadly tornado on February 5. The storms left 14 people dead and 150 homes and businesses destroyed. The free concert is scheduled for Sunday, March 2 at 7pm Central at Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, Tenn., and will feature songwriters-in-the-round with fellow artists Bebo Norman and Christy Nockels, formerly part of husband/wife duo �Watermark,� with songwriter/producer Jason Ingram. A donation will be collected at the show and all of the funds will go directly to the Macon County victims. Heath was inspired to plan the benefit after personally visiting Lafayette this week to help in the clean-up efforts. For more, visit
