AN EVENING WITH SCOTT HAMILTON & FRIENDS Bring A Spectacular Show Of Music And Figure Skating To Nashville This Sunday

This Sunday, November 19th, Olympic Gold Medalist and philanthropist, Scott Hamilton, brings us what is sure to be a spectacular production as he is hosting the 2nd annual AN EVENING WITH SCOTT HAMILTON & FRIENDS in Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena beginning at 5pm.

Ticket prices start at only 30.95 and go up in price from there.  You can purchase tickets and find out more by clicking HERE to be taken direct to the TicketMaster page or if would prefer, just go to www.ticketmaster.com and search for Scott Hamilton.

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, Sheryl Crow has announced her return to headline the musical stage for An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends benefitting the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation.  Co-hosted by special guest and Olympian, Peggy Fleming, this event will feature live music partnered with ice skating from Olympic, World, and National Champions Katia Gordeeva, Meryl Davis, Kurt Browning, Jeremy Abbott, Jeffrey Buttle, Kimmie Meissner, Michael Weiss, Alissa Czisny, Ryan Bradley, Steven Cousins, Sinead Kerr-Marshall & John Kerr, Kiira Korpi, and Kimberly Navarro & Brent Bommentre.

Sheryl Crow, who is a cancer survivor, will be joined on the music stage by GRAMMY Award winner Darius Rucker, legendary guitarist and songwriter Steve Cropper, singer, songwriter and actor Charles Esten (“Nashville”), lead singer of GRAMMY-nominated and American Music Award-wining band MercyMe Bart Millard, 2017 ACM and GRAMMY nominee Cassadee Pope and GRAMMY-nominated artist and Opry inductee Chris Young.

I was lucky enough to speak with Scott Hamilton a 2nd year in a row about his upcoming event. The first thing I notice about Hamilton is his unbreakable, positive spirit.  Even though it was only over the phone both times, I can literally HEAR his smile coming through the receiver.  He speaks with such excitement, optimism, and an overall zest for laugh. It is absolutely contagious as his laugh is even infectious.  He is so inspiring to me in every way and a true hero in my eyes.  Hamilton is a bright light in what can be a dim world.

Not only did he train for years and years in figure skating to win an Olympic gold medal, which is an incredible feat in itself, but he has continued with the sport years later.  He has done everything from touring with other Olympians doing exhibitions around the country and world, being a commentator for U.S. Figure Skating Championships, commentating Winter Olympic games giving commentary for figure skating, training people to figure skate, a philanthropist with his own foundation, and supporting other charity events by the MS Society and more.  He is now living in Nashville.  Several years now, and contributes so much to helping our community.

He is a positive force of nature to be reckoned with, and he is doing all of this as he battles a brain tumor over the course of the past year. This is his 2nd time to face a brain tumor.  You will not hear him complain, though.  He is nothing but positive and uplifting.  He is a very special person.

He spoke of his excitement about this event.  Figure skating is truly his passion and why he gives so much of himself to it.  It is the heart of who he is.  It is that unbreakable spirit in him that will amaze you, though.  He refuses to feel sorry for himself or utter a negative word.

What he does talk about is how precious life is and it should be enjoyed every day at the fullest.  None of us know what the future might bring. You don’t waste your life worrying about petty stuff. You appreciate life in the present. Every single day.

His advice for those facing their own health challenges? Eat right, exercise, and keep a positive attitude.  Do everything you can personally to control from your side what you can and keep pushing through.  Don’t give up and keep your faith.

Come out this Sunday to Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville to support this incredibly-inspiring man and his friends. You are in for something truly special!

Prayers & good thoughts for his healing.  If anyone can beat a brain tumor, he can.  He’s done it before and he can do it again.
