Buddy Cannon

As a producer of number one hits by artists like Kenny Chesney, John Michael Montgomery, Joe Nichols and Reba McEntire, Buddy Cannon’s talent in the studio continues to speak for itself.

His own impressive personal song catalog includes classic hits like Vern Gosdin’s “Set ‘Em Up Joe”, “Dream Of Me”, and “I’m Still Crazy,” Billy Ray Cyrus’ “She’s Not Cryin’ Anymore,” and George Strait’s “I’ve Come To Expect It From You,” and, most recently, Strait’s record-breaking 53rd number one song “Give It Away” which was named Song Of The Year at the 2007 Academy Of Country Music Awards.

He spent 6 years at Mercury/PolyGram Records where he was instrumental in signing Shania Twain, Sammy Kershaw, and Billy Ray Cyrus.  Cannon got his start in the business as a bass player for Bob Luman and Mel Tillis.

Marla Cannon-Goodman

Melonie Cannon

Melonie Cannon

Melonie Cannon is among our lineup of incredible songwriters to perform at this year’s Songwriter Shuffle!

She was just fourteen when she sang on her first recording session. And by the time she’d reached high school, studio dates filled her calendar. Sammy Kershaw, John Michael Montgomery, George Jones and Kenny Chesney were among the many who made use of her voice – its easy reach from whispered intimacy to exuberance, its way of wrapping around a melody and finding truth in a lyric even the first time through a tune – Melonie Cannon’s voice became a favorite of some of country music’s best.

“Melonie Cannon is one of the best singers I know…Her new bluegrass album is fantastic….I love her voice anyway, but singing with a great bluegrass band was a good idea…They blend well together…The fact that I got to sing with her on a song I wrote makes it even better…Go Melonie.” – Willie Nelson

“Melonie Cannon has a pure and soulful sound. She has a true and honest voice that savors every note. She’s the real deal.” – Shania Twain“She’s one of the best female voices I’ve ever had the pleasure to sing with.” – Vern Gosdin

“One of the most expressive singers in Nashville, and not merely in bluegrass circles, Cannon compels you to listen to these stories of everyday life, whether she’s consoling a new friend or stumbling into love after swearing it would never happen. She also submits a fine rendition of Set ‘Em Up Joe, the Vern Gosdin tune written by her dad, producer Buddy Cannon. Back to Earth, a duet with Willie Nelson, is a soothing highlight, too.” – Craig Shelborne, CMT.com

Josh Martin

Josh Martin

Josh Martin knows how to dance the fine line between radio country and his deep-holler Kentucky roots. It’s clear the songwriter/vocalist/guitarist is no stranger to longnecks and pick-up trucks – but he’s even closer to the bluegrass of his youth. His latest album, Nothing Holding Me, is a taut balancing act of accessibility and credibility, replete with honest songwriting and extraordinary musicianship. His songwriting is a testament to life in Kentucky, where he used to run up and down the holler roads – going anywhere he wanted, just because he could. That freedom, he says, rings out in every note he plays. You can hear traces of Guy Clark and Darrell Scott in his lyric, and the echo of John Mayer and Tony Rice in his guitar licks – and a hint of old-time spirituality in his voice. His songs are both smart and accessible, running wild and smiling back at Nashville from the open road. Martin is at the apex of his musical freedom, not afraid of joy or sorrow, just eager to share what he loves with the audience.

This fall, Craig will release his gripping new memoir — God, Family, Country — in partnership with Blackstone Publishing. He details all aspects from his inspiring life, revealing never-before-heard stories including how he worked alongside the CIA as a soldier in Panama, fought sex traffickers as an undercover agent in Thailand, forged his own path to country music stardom, and lives his life by the deepest values: God, family, country.

WHY SPONSOR?

These events support Tough Enough To Wear Pink and are critical to the funding of our programs in the Gunnison Valley.  Funding from sponsorships will be used directly for our many programs. Here are a few………

EARLY DETECTION & SUPPORT FOR LIFE-SAVING SCREENINGS

Provide life-saving cancer screenings for those who do not have insurance.

Help to raise awareness around the importance of early screening for breast cancer. Over the last few years, TETWP has ramped up our awareness campaign resulting in a 40% increase from 2017 to 2019 in the number of women getting their annual mammogram!

More and more women have been getting their annual mammogram at GVH. With this great success we have also experienced an increase in requests for financial assistance to help cover the cost of mammograms, ultrasounds, and/or biopsies for the uninsured or underinsured.

In 2021 our organization covered $50,152.31 in mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and breast MRIs.

Over the last year the Lucy’s House program has covered 145 Nights of Lodging for individuals with ALL types of cancer. Helping them to stay close to where they receive their treatments and ease some of the stress experienced by individuals and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

GUNNISON VALLEY HOSPITAL 

Provide state of the art equipment, physicians, and services to be the best small town cancer care hospital in the USA. 

TETWP has purchased top of the line equipment including a 3D Tomo Mammography machine, digital ultrasound, stereotactic biopsy equipment, and breast MRI coil so that women can get the necessary screenings for breast cancer here at GVH.

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY

TETWP coupons will be provided to cancer patients and their caregivers to use for integrative therapies such as reiki, massage, acupuncture, light therapy, nutrition, ortho bionomy, etc .  These therapies have been proven to help cancer patients stay strong mentally and physically while they are going through their surgeries and treatments. Research findings show that integrative therapies can help to boost the immune system, reduce pain and help patients stay strong.


These are just a few of the impactful programs that Tough Enough To Wear Pink provides to our community.  To learn more about all the TETWP Programs, please visit TETWP Programs.
