Kent Blazy speaks about his experience with Alive Hospice

Published on January 25, 2018


Rarely have I read a more moving and meaningful description of the work we do than Jessica Bliss’s story that appeared in the Tennessean. She tells of Garth Brooks and Kent Blazy co-writing the megahit If Tomorrow Never Comeswhen they were both starting out years ago. And she recounts their plan to sing it again at the February 1 “Alive at the Bluebird” show, as a love song to Kent’s wife Sharon, who died of a brain tumor several years ago. They will be joined that night by Pat Alger, Victoria Shaw, and Tony Arata.

Kent’s words leave me overwhelmed with both gratitude and renewed determination – gratitude for organizations like the Bluebird and people like you who make our mission possible; and determination to continue to make the highest quality hospice care, grief support and end-of-life education available to everyone who needs it.

Please take a moment to read Jessica’s piece. And please know how much your support – and the support of the Bluebird and our city’s gifted and giving songwriters – means to us.


Alive Hospice, President/CEO
