Matraca Berg Native Nashvillian and NSAI Hall of Fame member Berg’s songs have been sung by
Randy Travis, Faith Hill, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Linda Ronstadt,
Tanya Tucker, Pam Tillis, Keith Urban, Loretta Lynn and dozens of others. “The Last One to Know,” “I’m That Kind of Girl,” “Wild Angels” and “You And Tequila”
are among the more than 200 recordings of her songs – making Matraca
one of the most recorded composers in Music City.  In 1997, her Gary
Harrison co-write “Strawberry Wine” was named Song of the Year
by both the Country Music Association and the NSAI.  The two-time
Grammy nominee has earned a dozen BMI songwriter awards, is a gifted
performer in her own right, and was one of Hank’s favorite songwriters.


Erin Enderlin
– Erin has had songs recorded by artists Alan Jackson, Lee Ann Womack,
Luke Bryan, Joey + Rory, and Tyler Farr, including the award-winning
singles “Monday Morning Church” and “Last Call.”  A featured artist on the Willie Nelson Country Throwdown Tour in 2011, the Arkansas native has opened shows for Marty Stuart, Kip Moore, and Diamond Rio, and performed at the Grand Ole Opry, the famed Ryman Auditorium and Billy Bob’s Texas.


Kalisa Ewing –
A native Tennessean, Kalisa’s songs have been recorded by Kelly
Clarkson and Kellie Pickler, and been showcased on and included in the
Season 2 soundtrack of the popular television show, NASHVILLE.  She recently performed on the
Grand Ole Opry At The Ryman,
and shared the stage with Loretta Lynn in May.  Her sweet Country voice
and hauntingly beautiful lyrics drove her to follow in the footsteps of
her late grandfather, who moved to Music City in 1972 to pursue his


Marla Cannon-GoodmanMarla
grew up surrounded by some of the greatest songwriters in the business,
including her father, songwriter/producer Buddy Cannon.  Her first cut,
“The Fool,” recorded by LeeAnn Womack, hit #1 on the Country
charts, jump-starting a career that features recordings by Blake
Shelton, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Sammy Kershaw, Billy Currington,
Eric Church, and many others.  She has reached #1 with two more songs: “Ten Rounds of Jose Cuervo” by Tracy Byrd and “Cleaning This Gun” by Rodney Atkins. 
In addition to these singer/songwriters, several “special guests” will be on hand. 
Created in honor of NSAI Hall of Fame and Grammy award-winner Hank Cochran, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2010, the Fund
raised over $11,000 with its first benefit in July.  This show promises
to match the excitement of that inaugural event – and supporters hope
that the reasonable ticket price will pack the house.  “These are among
the premiere songwriters in Nashville,” notes Booth Calder Cochran,
co-founder of TPF.
  “That they all happen to be women – and great entertainers – would delight Hank!”
death rate for pancreatic cancer is an astonishing 93%; treatment can
bankrupt families and worries over financial matters create their own
problems.  “The goal of the Fund is to lend direct assistance to
songwriters who are affected by this cancer,” states Booth.  “We would
love to help further research and see early diagnostic testing
implemented, but right now our main focus has to be on those who have
already been stricken with this deadly disease.”
