Tony Arata with Parker MacDonell & Keith Larsen

  • This event has passed.

Tony is best known for writing one of the most inspiring—and top-selling—country songs of all time, “The Dance,” recorded by Garth Brooks.

Garth Brooks, himself, says, “One of my favorite songwriters has to be Tony Arata.” Garth has recorded seven of Tony’s songs, and Tony also wrote No. 1 records for Patty Loveless, Lee Roy Parnell, and Clay Walker. Other artists who have recorded Tony’s songs include Reba McEntire, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Emmylou Harris, and Delbert McClinton.

Parker is a veteran of the LA club scene and college student unions across the US. He has shared the stage with Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Mary Travers and Christine Lavin. He’s a pioneer in the Columbus music scene, including a founder of Six String Concerts. His CD releases are Home to the Heart, and Looking for You.

Keith’s song, “Hold On,” won the People’s Choice Award in the Nashville Songwriters Association International/Country Music Television songwriting competition. He is a two-time selection to Songwriter Serenade, finishing as a finalist and semi-finalist. He has also appeared in two seasons of Songs at the Center.
