Desert Okie Strong For Chad Trout: Shelly Fairchild

by Missy Wolf / 2400 days ago / Comments

When it comes to the music community in Nashville, the bond between artists is undeniably strong. Should someone find themselves in need, the entire music community joins forces to help out. Thankfully for Desert Okie Chad Trout, artists like Shelly Fairchild stepped up to lend their talents on stage in an effort to help raise funds for crucial cancer treatments.

Knowing that cancer can affect anyone, Fairchild was beyond happy to contribute her talent to this noteworthy cause. As we sat in the green room before her round was due to take the stage, Fairchild and I discussed what being a part of this benefit show meant to her. 

Fairchild was quick to point out that being a musician is not all glamorous, despite what fans might think. As an artist, you are faced with many challenges that most do not realize. When you add having cancer to the mix, those challenges can instantly become burdens that would be dreadful to face alone. As part of the Nashville music community, Fairchild knows the importance that music has on the mind, body, and soul. Watch our conversation now to learn more about this wonderful night of music helping one of Nashville's very own.

Music truly is healing. Music brings people together. Music allows the mind to free itself from the stresses of everyday life. Music connects the artist to the fan and vice versa. Music speaks when your voice has been silenced. Without music, there would be far less beauty and magic in the world. Be a voice today. Visit and support Trout by purchasing a cd today. Christmas will be here soon, so now is the perfect time to grab one for a friend too. Not only will you be giving the gift of great music to someone you love, you will also be giving the gift of a lifetime to Trout and his family with your support.

Be sure to follow Fairchild on social media and visit her website to stay up to date with her latest updates and performance schedule. It is just a matter of time before we see her at the Opry once again. ~Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist & Vice President of the American Country Music Association

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
