Bethany to Present Nashville Showcase Featuring Jimmy Charles

On May 20-22, the Town of Bethany Beach will host Songwriter Showcase: The Nashville Connection, at 7:30 p.m. on the bandstand. The event will feature three nights of original music written and performed by musicians in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia whose connections to Nashville have helped to boost their careers.

The event has been in the making for three years but has been shelved due to COVID-19.

“The concept came about in 2016 after a trip to Nashville,” said Julie Malewski, events director for the Town. “I came back and started researching area artists with ties to Nashville that I could present in Bethany.”

Each artist on the roster has a different style. Friday night features Jimmy Charles, who has toured the country with original material, opening for Lady A, Montgomery Gentry, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves, Travis Tritt, Josh Turner, Merle Haggard, Joe Nichols and more. The Ocean City, Md., native headed to Nashville in 2010. He tried out for Nashville Star, along with 40,000 other people, and made it to the Top 50.

Charles would go on to earn a unanimous vote ticket to Hollywood as a Season 9 “American Idol” contestant. While the singer/songwriter found early success in 2014 with his first single, “Whatever It Takes,” picked up nationwide by iHeart radio, it’s “Superman” that solidified his place in the spotlight.

Written for ZERO the End of Prostate Cancer to promote awareness with bandmate Goose Gossett and cancer survivor/mentor Phil Shulka, the song’s companion video premiered on CMT, trending in the No. 1 spot for over a week, with more than 5,000 shares its first day on the site. The clip also aired on GAC, ZUUS (now known as The Country Network) and Heartland.
