Gretchen Wilson has canceled her Lebanon, Tennessee show on October 15th because of a scheduling conflict. The concert was scheduled to be at the Wilson Country Fairgrounds. Around 100 tickets have already been sold for the concert, which was to raise money for Bradley’s Barn Project. All tickets will be refunded, and Gretchen expects a new date in Spring 2012.
Event organizers believe a Spring date will be better for the fund-raising efforts, since they will be able to say what they are planning on building and where funds will go at that time. Proceeds were to go in the memory of the late producer Owen Bradley, and to re-create a barn where he recorded Brenda Lee, Roy Robinson, and Ernest Tubb. Organizers want to create a concert venue for musicians and a recording studio with money raised at the concert, and the Bradley family has agreed to donate the recording equipment originally used by Owen for the new venue.
