I would venture to guess that when we listeners hear the next big hit from George, Reba or Willie, we rarely think of wrote the song. But rather we give all the glory to the entertainer. But it had to start somewhere. And from the depths of Allen Shamblin's brain came the creative song that won it all for Miranda Lambert, "The House That Built Me".

At an annual fundraiser for Covenant Children's Hospital held at the Cactus June 25, you can find out Shamblin's secrets to a hit song, because he's one of the guest artists performing. Also, want to know about the Kenny Chesney hit, "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem'? Co-writer of that song, Casey Beathard, will join Shamblin along with Mike Reid who has written hits for Wynonna Judd, Willie Nelson and Ronnie Milsap. It's the 10th Annual Storytellers benefit with this years proceeds buying bedded warmers for the NICU unit at Covenant. When you think of the children that will be affected by great event it makes you feel good that you were one of the millions who loved Miranda's hit. For more information on the event on to this website. Check out that fabulous song by Allen Shamblin.
