NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – This Sunday, some of country music’s biggest song writers are getting together at the Ryman to fill the venue for High Hopes, an all-inclusive preschool in Franklin.

News 2 first told you about High Hopes this summer.

It’s where Rory Feek found hope for his 2-year-old daughter with special needs after the death of his wife Joey.

The development center is a nonprofit so they have to raise money to keep the doors open.

Songwriter Tim Nichols, who co-wrote “Live Like You Were Dying”, has been singing his hit songs at the fundraiser for 19 years.

We asked him what has kept him coming back and he says all you have to do is take a walk around the place.

“I’ve heard parents say we really didn’t feel like we had much hope until we found High Hopes and now we have hope,” said Nichols. “And we see our child doing things that doctors told us may never happen.”

This year features several hot songwriters as well as a few members of the band “Old Dominion”.

The show is Sunday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range from $30 to $50.
