Up & Coming Country Artist to Play Suicide Awareness Benefit In Magna Utah
The Fallen Brothers Benefit was started 8 years ago by Darren Lewis of Magna, UT with the death of a close friend, and unfortunately over the years the list of names has grown. Sadly in 2009 his own son Justin was added to this list of young kids who have lost the fight with either drug/alcohol abuse or suicide. The second leading cause of death in the State of Utah in youth is teen suicide.
The Fallen Brothers foundation is made up of parents and family members who have lost a child to Alcohol/Drug abuse or Suicide. Last year $16,802 was raised. They are hoping to raise $25,000 this year. .The Fallen Brothers Foundation has joined hands with the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention – Utah Chapter with an intention to educate people and increase awareness about the prevention of suicide and save lives.
This year, along with the annual Golf Tournament, The Fallen Brothers Foundation will be holding a Benefit Concert and BBQ at the Magna Baseball Field in Magna, UT on Saturday June 23rd starting at 6:00 P.M. Local Native and Up and Coming Country Artist Tay Humphrey will be performing his latest songs from his first official album set to be released later this year. Which includes original songs he wrote along with songs he cut written by other great Nashville artist including Lee Brice, who had Billboard's Top Country Song of 2010 with "Love Like Crazy", also winning the title of song of the year for the song he wrote for the Eli Young Band "Crazy Girl" at the 2012 ACM Awards. Tay also recorded songs by hit songwriter Jason Mathews who wrote "Country Man" for Luke Bryan and "Break Down Here" for Julie Roberts, and songwriter Kyle Jacobs who is Kellie Picklers husband.
Tay was born in Murray, Utah and raised in the Salt Lake City area. He moved to Nashville, TN in 2007 to pursue his dream of country music. His debut album was produced by Grammy Nominated Producer Charlie Kelley.
This is a family event. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the gate for only $10 per adult and $5 per child. Along with the concert and BBQ, there will be several other guest speakers and raffles.
