“We have limited seating left and encourage everyone who wishes to attend to purchase tickets immediately,” said Linda Skelton of the Winston County Chamber of Commerce.

The event will have two shows with one at 4 pm and one at 7 pm. Tickets may be purchased at the Winston County Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to Jackson the show features award winning writers and performers Jerry Salley, Larry Cordle, Valerie Storey, Bradley Walker, Johnny Rawls, and comedian Lonnie Shorr.

The proceeds from the concert will help the continued renovation of his hometown theater (The Strand Theater) which now serves as the Community Arts Center.

For years, Music Row veteran songwriters /artists Carl Jackson, Larry Cordle, and Jerry Salley have been donating their talents to the Home for Christmas concert to benefit the restoration of the historic Strand Theatre in Louisville. This trio also recently came together for the Republican National Convention where they played to an enthusiastic crowd. Republican Congressman Gregg Harper had arranged the event.

The three have also released two albums together, Against The Grain and Lonesome Cafe along with their multiple solo projects available, as well.

Each is an acclaimed artist having won music awards from Grammies to Dove Awards.
