Country in the Rockies gets set to hit the slopes

Country in the Rockies, the annual T.J. Martell Foundation fundraising event that benefits research at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, is gearing up for another year of country music and fun in the snow from Jan. 26-30 in Steamboat Springs, Colo.

The event has a new location this year at the Steamboat Grande Resort, where participants will enjoy skiing and entertainment by some of country music's best. The lineup includes Little Big Town, Blue County, Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx, and many other artists.

Country in the Rockies was founded by Frances Williams Preston, former president and CEO of BMI and current president of the T.J. Martell Foundation board of directors. In 1993, The Frances Williams Preston Laboratories were established at Vanderbilt-Ingram in her honor. Money raised at Country in the Rockies goes toward research at the Frances Williams Preston Laboratories.
