A  Meridian favorite, The Heart Behind the Music showcase returns. Singers and songwriters take turns presenting songs and stories, both funny and heartwarming. Richie McDonald is lead singer of the country group Lonestar ("My Front Porch Looking In," "Mr. Mom") and a solo artist. Oleta Adams ("Get Here") sings soul, jazz, and gospel and has performed with Tears for Fears and Phil Collins. Beth Nielsen Chapman has written many hits for others ("This Kiss," "Nothing I Can Do About It Now," "Five Minutes") and has a new album with Amy Sky and Olivia Newton-John, LIV ON. Ace guitarist Lee Roy Parnell ("Tender Moment," "Heart's Desire") has notched several blues-tinged country hits. All in all, another winning lineup.
