It's quite easy to forget the raw, unfettered female talent in Nashville. Radio is deceiving that way. But snatch up a dozen or so of the brightest, most promising singer-songwriters and plop them down in an intimate setting, and they'll recharge your optimism for the future of country music.

Proceeds benefited the non-profit Safe Haven, an effort to combat homelessness.
