Country Artist Curtis Braly to Perform “America the Beautiful” at Chukkers for Charity 

Nashville, Tenn. (August 29, 2018) – Rising country artist Curtis Braly will perform “America the Beautiful” prior to the start of this year’s Chukkers for Charity event on Saturday, Sept. 8. 

Nissan’s Chukkers for Charity will have a different flavor when it returns its 22nd annual polo match and car show held in Franklin. This year’s theme, “Diamonds and Divots,” will celebrate an afternoon of polo featuring all female polo players for the first time. 

Chukkers for Charity raises funds annually for Rochelle Center and Saddle Up! and has raised $2.1 million over the last 21 years. Chukkers for Charity is the largest polo event in Middle Tennessee and features a vintage car show parade during halftime, a silent auction and cabana decorating competition. 

“I've always had a special place in my heart for children,” states Braly. “So, I was eager to jump at the opportunity to be a part of Chukkers for Charity.” 

The 22nd annual Chukkers for Charity polo match has announced this year’s all-female teams to play on Saturday, Sept. 8 at Riverview Farm. John and Crispin Menefee’s Ironhorse Farms and Eleanor Menefee Parkes’ Colonial Hill Farm are team sponsors, thus creating a bit of sibling rivalry, as the opposing farm owners John and Eleanor are brother and sister. 

The signature event returns with the theme “Diamonds and Divots” to raise funds for Rochelle Center and Saddle Up!, local organizations that support individuals with disabilities. Both teams will feature all-female players, with the Ironhorse Farms team including Martha Bennett, Virginia Ingram, Hope Arellano and Gillian Johnston. The Colonial Hill Farm team includes Gracie Brown, Lexie Armstrong, Dawn Jones (wife of actor Tommy Lee Jones) and Allie Henderson. 

The gates for Chukkers for Charity will open at 1 p.m. for tailgaters and 2 p.m. for patrons. The opening ceremony will be held at 2:45 p.m. and will include performers Curtis Braly and Sweet Tea Trio, with the polo match beginning around 3 p.m. Following the polo match, the Patrons’ Dinner will begin at 5:15 p.m. 

Fieldside Patron Tables and Standard Patron Tables are now sold out, but individual patron tickets are still available for $175. Tailgating cabanas are available for $300, which includes six wristbands and a cabana. Two additional wristbands per cabana are available for $50 each. This year, catering packages are available to cabana groups through The Daily Dish. To purchase tickets or learn more about catering, please visit https://chukkersforcharity.net. 

Chukkers for Charity is hosted by Lee Ann and Orrin Ingram at Riverview Farm at 1475 Moran Road in Franklin, Tenn.

About Curtis Braly 

Braly recently recorded his third album, produced by Kent Wells, titled You Matter. It provides a deep look into Braly’s childhood, where the Humble, Texas native experienced bullying throughout high school. “That was a difficult time in my life—mere words can leave lifetime scars,” mentions Braly. “But, it was an experience that made me stronger and I wouldn’t change it for anything.  It taught me how important it was to be kind.” The 10-song album features tracks such as “Love You Down,” “Hate Me,” and “Simple’s Not Easy” that touch on love, loneliness, fear, break-ups and of course, beer.  A “labor of love,” the compilation is a reflection of personal and artistic evolution and was created with purposeful intent to inspire.

REVIEW: Curtis Braly creates enjoyable contemporary country music in You Matter. 

Review of: 'You Matter' by Curtis Braly 
Reviewed by: Erin Huestis, The Celebrity Cafe

Curtis Braly released "You Matter" on Sept. 9.
With production by Kent Wells, this contemporary country album is entertaining and heartfelt.

 

Curtis Braly is a Texan whose investment in singing began at a young age.  After taking a somewhat roundabout path back into the spotlight, Braly made two albums. Entitled "You Matter", Kent Wells now produced the artist’s third record. Reflecting Braly’s desire to touch a wide array of people, this album draws on his own life experiences. Ranging from fun and lighthearted to heavy and emotional, You Matter covers a broad spectrum of humanity. 

You Matter opens with a track called “Song You Can Drink A Beer To.” Not surprisingly, the piece is everything the title suggests. An unpretentious tune, it applies to a large scope of moods. Punctuated by wailing guitars, this country song has enough rock elements to keep a wide audience smiling. 

Curtis Braly goes on to deliver entertaining pop-twinged tracks such as “Don’t You Wanna,” “Simples Not Easy” and “Storm Chaser.” Amidst these are a few enjoyable emotional peaks and valleys. “Secondhand High” is among these – a definitive highlight on You Matter. An old western sounding intro with deeper tonality acts as the backdrop to smooth vocals, which spark listener attention. With a classically rock progression, Braly keeps the momentum building. Additionally, appealingly rough edges on “Secondhand High” let audiences know that this artist’s work is not always shiny.


Realism in song
 

“Love You Down” was the first single released off You Matter. Enticing musicality permeates this strong love song. Though it depicts a complicated situation, Braly does not tend too far toward either emo or overly forceful – causing the song to feel honest. Immediately following, “Hate Me” draws attention to the murky waters of breakups. It rings true in complexity and simultaneous straightforwardness. “Hate Me” is likely to garner trust from audiences in its realism. 

You Matter continues with “Pour Me a Memory.” Another track grounded in unabashed humanity, it is both sorrowful and relatable. A percussion heavy and slower tune, “Pour Me a Memory” does not seem overworked or unduly polished. In the fine country tradition of singing about the ‘ordinary’ in a way that makes it engaging – encouraging listeners to smell the roses and sharing sympathy over bad days – this album closes with the casual “Best Seat in the House.” 

Curtis Braly creates enjoyable contemporary country music in You Matter.  A heartfelt honesty and openness seems to drive his music. Listeners will be entertained and touched by this album.
