Seniors & Songwriters | Episode 1 | Billy Dawson & Resident Mr. Perkins

We are thrilled to release the first video in the mini-series Seniors & Songwriters! In this episode, country artist and host Billy Dawson visits Chevy Chase House and meets with Mr. Perkins.

The goal of this series is to bring songwriters to different senior living communities across the country, where they play music and tell the stories behind their songs to appreciative senior citizens and the seniors get to share their life stories as well. The program does its best to interact with the community, offering friendship and more importantly, dignity. The first episode of the heartwarming series is being premiered by Sounds Like Nashville on Monday, February, 22 featuring Mr. Perkins, who is a 97-year-old American hero.
