MEETING OVER MUSIC

MEETING OVER MUSIC
 Country music star Lee Brice joined Chris Boucher and his mother, Tracy Boucher of Union City during a reception at Commercial Bank prior to Monday night’s popular Songwriters’ Night at the Capitol Theatre in downtown Union City. For Brice and fellow songwriters and performers Lance Miller and Rob Hatch, it was a return engagement centered around some good hunting at Reelfoot Lake and raising money for the local Boys & Girls Club. Ms. Boucher is program director for that organization. “They love coming to this area,” said Portis Tanner, who is chief volunteer officer of the club and is a friend of the trio. Tanner said early estimates are that the event raised about $17,000. “The guys had a great time performing and then being at Reelfoot Lake. It was a really successful hunt. Lee refers to this area as ‘Reunion City’ because we’ve been meeting up here to hunt for so many years and it’s always a great time. They’ve really enjoyed the songwriters’ nights, too, because they say the crowds are always so appreciative and get so involved in the show. They love the feedback. Sometimes in areas like Nashville, the audience is so used to live entertainment by even topnotch acts that they get sort of casual about the whole thing. Here, people are excited to be meeting them and getting involved in the music and finding out how certain songs came to be written and what those songs mean to the guys who wrote them and sing them.” Additional coverage of the songwriters’ visit to Obion County will be featured in next week’s Friends & Neighbors
