Music series to feature Grammy nominee

Written by 

Bill LaBounty, Candi Carpenter, and Grammy and CMA Nominee Bobby Tomberlin will play at the Balsam Mountain Inn’s Songwriters-in-the-Round series at 6 p.m. on July 7.

Tomberlin co-wrote Diamond Rio’s number one hit “One More Day” and has also written songs for Faith Hill, Kenny Rogers, Josh Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others. Bobby is a cast member of the hit Country Music Television series “The Singing Bee.”

With more than 100 songs recorded by other artists, LaBounty has written hits for Brooks and Dunn (“Rock My World”), Michael Johnson (“This Night Won’t Last Forever” and “I Want To Be Loved Like That”), and others for the Judds, Alison Krauss, Alan Jackson and Tim McGraw.

Carpenter is a new star on the horizon. She has shared the stage with legends like Vince Gill and Loretta Lynn. She writes songs with Bill Anderson and Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers.

The Songwriters-in-the-Round series began in 1996 and brings some of the nation’s best lyricists and musicians to the inn for monthly performances in the Grand Dining Room. The musicians sit in a small circle in the dining room with the audience all around and swap tales and sing songs.

Balsam Mountain Inn is on Seven Springs Drive off the U.S. 74/23 in Balsam.
