NASHVILLE, TENN. – Nov. 29, 2012 Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris and contemporary Christian music superstar Steven Curtis Chapman will join headliners Ricky Skaggs and The Whites for the 15th Annual Concert for Cumberland Heights on December 6 at 7:30 p.m.
at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The evening will be a
holiday-themed, variety-style show titled “A Skaggs Family Christmas,”
featuring both holiday classics and new Christmas music, bringing
together the love of family and friends with the beauty of song for a
great cause. This is the Ryman’s longest running benefit concert series,
and tickets are now on sale at ryman.com (http://www.ryman.com/event/detail/skaggsxmas12.html), the Ryman box office and all Ticketmaster outlets.
 
Since 1996, the annual Concert for Cumberland Heights (www.cumberlandheights.org)
has raised more than $1.8 million for the John Hiatt Fund for
Adolescent Treatment. Singer/songwriter John Hiatt will host the event,
sharing his own recovery from alcohol and drug abuse to inspire others.
 
“Ricky
Skaggs, The Whites, and now Emmylou Harris and Steven Curtis
Chapman…what an outstanding night of music this will be,” said
Cumberland Heights CEO Jim Moore. “We are thrilled to
have these legendary artists come together to celebrate the holidays and
raise funds for one of our most important programs at Cumberland
Heights.”
 
Cumberland
Heights’ Youth Program is designed to help adolescents ages 14 to 18
and their families find the most effective way to deal with the
challenges they face and commit to recovery. One of its most highly
praised programs, the Youth Program includes a residential program with
intensive outpatient treatment; an extended care program for adolescents
who have completed primary treatment; and outpatient services for those
in the early stages of chemical dependency. The Youth Program is
staffed with highly trained and licensed educators who operate River
Road Academy, a state-approved, private high school that provides a
drug-free environment for students in recovery. 
 
Expected
to be a sellout, the Concert for Cumberland Heights is a festive family
event in an intimate setting that highlights the need for compassionate
care for adolescents in crisis.
