Tim Atwood Joins Jeannie Seely, Nicole C. Mullen, Charlie McCoy, Julie Roberts, Candy Christmas, Paul Allen Coons & More for Sixth Annual 'Nashville Senior Christmas ShinnDig'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Country music star and Grand Ole Opry veteran Tim Atwood recently reunited onstage with fifty-two year Grand Ole Opry member, and country music icon, Jeannie Seely. Atwood & Seely - who've accompanied each other many times over the years on the Grand Ole Opry stage - performed “Old Friends” at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena for the Fifth Annual 'Nashville Senior Christmas ShinnDig.' Atwood also performed a fast paced rendition of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” on piano.

The special event was established to honor Nashville senior citizens by George Shinn and The George Shinn Foundation as a promise to his mother to always remember our seniors. Approximately 800 seniors from the greater Nashville area were served at the free luncheon, highlighted by holiday entertainment, special door prizes, and a car which was given away to a needy individual.

“This is my third year to perform on the ShinnDig, and it is such an honor!” says Atwood. “I admire how Mr. Shinn, years ago, made a promise to his mother to remember our seniors, and he kept that promise. I took care of my own mother when her health began to fail, and I made a similar promise. I love the way George Shinn and the George Shinn Foundation reminds us that, in what often feels like a youth obsessed society, our “seniors” are still our most valuable asset. I can attest that life doesn’t end when you reach a certain age; with the right frame of mind and perseverance, it just keeps getting better.”

Other performers at the event included Charlie McCoy, Nicole C. Mullen, Julie Roberts, Paul Allen Coons, and Candy Christmas, with Hope Hines joining as the event’s emcee. Also in attendance were special guests Scott Hamilton and Darrell Waltrip.
