The Music City Futurity, a cutting-horse competition to be held Oct. 12, will benefit Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.

The show was the idea of Barbara Brooks, wife of country superstar Kix Brooks. Barbara, an accomplished equestrian, serves on the board of directors for the Ronald McDonald House. Tickets, available at the door, are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Competition begins at 7 p.m. Brooks and Dunn merchandise will also be sold during the event, with proceeds from the sale also benefiting the two institutions.

The show will be held at the Williamson County Agriculture Exposition Center, at the Peytonsville exit on I-65 in Franklin.
