Bluebird In The Boro Raises Money For Hospice

Posted at 10:05 PM, Mar 02, 2016

One of the most popular music venues in Nashville, The Bluebird Cafe, relocated for one night to Murfreesboro.

Hit songwriters like Tim James, who has written for stars such as Toby Keith and Lee Brice, performed at a "Bluebird in the Boro" event Wednesday night.

It was all to raise money for a new Alive Hospice Center in Murfreesboro. Leaders at Alive Hospice said they couldn't have been more grateful.

“Almost 400 people have come together in the Murfreesboro community in order to be able to support our fundraiser. It's just exciting. We've had a dozen songwriters that have been a part of this. I mean, it's really - it's a thrill,” said Alive Hospice President and CEO, Anna-Gene O’neal.

Alive Hospice has been providing home-based hospice care in Murfreesboro for many years, but with the funds raised Wednesday, they hoped to build a facility there just like the residence they have right here in Nashville.
