Artists: Grammy Award Winner Don Henry, Anne E. DeChant, Craig Carothers, and hosted by songwriter Eric Gnezda. Artist Bio: Don Henry, by popular demand, is the first artist to make a return appearance to Songs at the Center. A Grammy award winning songwriter, Don has had songs recorded by Ray Charles, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, BJ Thomas, Patti Page, Conway Twitty, and many others. The wit and wisdom of Don's songs are widely celebrated. He is best known for his Grammy Award-winning song, "Where've You Been," recorded by Kathy Mattea, and co-written with Jon Vezner. The song also garnered Song of the Year honors from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, and Nashville Songwriters Association International. "Where've You Been" was the first song in country music history to be awarded all four honors in the same year. He sings "BFD" and "Singing Like A Byrd." Artist Bio: Anne E. DeChant is an award-winning Nashville recording artist originally from Cleveland, Ohio where she was a five-time singer-songwriter of the year. She has shared the stage with Stevie Nicks, Nora Jones, Joan Armatrading, Sheryl Crow and the Indigo Girls. She has played venues ranging from the White House to Nashville's Bluebird Cafe. Her song, "Girls and Airplanes," about women breaking down barriers, has been featured on the soundtrack of the Hollywood film, "The Hot Flashes," starring Brooke Shields, and in the critically acclaimed documentary film "The Vetters: All We Needed." She performs "Go Get Joe." Artist Bio: Craig Carothers, a native of Portland, Oregon, makes his home in Nashville, Tennessee. He has written songs for Trisha Yearwood, Kathy Mattea, and Peter, Paul & Mary, among others. In addition to being a top-level songwriter, "He has a voice that should be famous," says Patty Larkin. The Birmingham News writes that he performs "smart, memorable material put across with abundant personality," and Performing Songwriter Magazine says Craig has "the right mix of weary-eyed cynicism and helpless hearted romanticism." He sings, "For a Song."
