      Pat Alger In Concert

      We’re thrilled to welcome Pat Alger to our stage. He is songwriting royalty. Pat has well over 20 Americana & Country hits to his credit, including eight # 1 songs. After touring the Southeast college-club circuit in his early days, he played with the Woodstock Mountains Revue. This loose-knit group also included, at one time or another, John Sebastian, Paul Butterfield, Maria Muldaur, and Eric Andersen. Pat arrived in Nashville in 1981, and his career skyrocketed. The Everly Brothers chose him as their opening act in 1984, and he toured with them for four years. But he really began to gain recognition as a songwriter with the release of Nanci Griffith's third album, “Once In A Very Blue Moon”, in 1985. Pat’s songs have been recorded by Nanci Griffith ("Once In A Very Blue Moon", "Lone Star State of Mind", & “Goin’ Gone”), Dolly Parton, Brenda Lee, The Everly Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Crystal Gayle, & Peter, Paul & Mary, among many others. He has written Top 10 country hits for Kathy Mattea ("Goin' Gone", "She Came From Fort Worth" & "A Few Good Things Remain"), Garth Brooks ("Unanswered Prayers", "What She's Doing Now", "The Thunder Rolls, & "That Summer"), Hal Ketchum ("Small Town Saturday Night"), Don Williams ("True Love") and Trisha Yearwood ("Like We Never Had A Broken Heart"). Awards In 1991, Pat was voted Songwriter of the Year by the Nashville Songwriter's Association International, and the same year he was voted Jukebox Songwriter of the Year by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, ASCAP. In 1992, he received the Country Songwriter of the Year award from ASCAP. Country Music Association gave him two Triple Play awards given to those who have three number one hits in a year. In 2010, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and he was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2013. Pat doesn't play many concerts these days. He is not touring at this time, but he agreed to come do a show for us, and a Songwriting Workshop the afternoon of the show (see Workshop Registration information further down). Can you imagine what it'll be like to hear his famous songs perfomed by him, and the stories he can share with us? As Nanci Griffith said, "No one sings or plays Pat Alger like Pat Alger himself." Pat has been featured on NPR’s "All Things Considered" and "Fresh Air" several times. His solo albums include “True Love and Other Short Stories”, “Seeds”, and “Notes and Grace Notes”, and feature backup by Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, Kathy Mattea, Mary Black, & Trisha Yearwood. Won’t you please join us for this very special evening with the legendary Pat Alger!
