Paris, Tenn.—The Sonny Melton Benefit Songwriters Round and Silent Auction will be held at 6 p.m. October 13 at the Krider Performing Arts Center in Paris.

Some of Nashville’s biggest songwriters, Clint Lagerberg, Matt Warren, and John Pierce, will share songs, spin stories and keep the audience wishing for more.

A silent auction will also take place with donated products and services from local businesses, signed guitars and memorabilia from country artists and special items from sports teams like the Tennessee Titans.
