Pick of the Day: Lyrics for Lyric at Pick's Bar

Lyrics for Lyric Benefit
Where: Pick's Bar, Best Western, 1407 Division St.
When: 7 p.m. Wed., May 25

Two-year-old Lyric Frizzell — great-niece of honky-tonk crooner Lefty Frizzell — is battling a rare form of leukemia, and a formidable lineup of country and bluegrass singers and songwriters has stepped up to help in the way that Nashville musicians often do: with a benefit show.

This one’s in an in-the-round format, and it features a number of notable singers, including Josh Shilling (who brings blue-eyed soul-pop to Mountain Heart), folk-leaning contemporary bluegrass veteran Claire Lynch, and stone-country ex-Shenandoah frontman Marty Raybon. Paired with them in various combinations are others equally known for their songs and their picking, like Cia Cherryholmes (of the just-disbanded Cherryholmes), onetime Glen Campbell banjo player and present-day jack of all trades Carl Jackson, bassist and prolific bluegrass composer (and Scene contributor) Jon Weisberger, and jazzy, band-leading bassist Missy Raines.
