The Charlie Worsham Follow Your Heart Scholarship Gala - Grenada, MS

I have been planning events for nearly 6 years, and this event definitely made me realize why I love what I do! The event was held at the Regions Center in Grenada, MS. Guests entered on a red carpet for the ultimate VIP experience, then explored the live auction items during cocktail hour. Each place setting was set with a sprig of rosemary and centerpieces were lit with white candles. King Cut Prime Rib was served along with rosemary roasted potatoes and lemon infused sautéed asparagus prepared by High Cotton Catering Company.The décor was fabulous, and the event was a success, but you are probably wondering what is The Follow Your Heart Scholarship?

When Charlie Worsham was younger, he received wonderful advice from Marty Stuart through an autograph that said "Follow Your Heart." Needless to say, he took this advice very seriously, so seriously that he had it tattooed on his arm.

Charlie is living proof that anything is possible when a young person uses their heart as a compass for their dreams. He started his own journey in Grenada, MS learning how to play several different instruments and is now an artist in Nashville, TN for Warner Music Group, an American global record company known as one of the "big three" recording companies and the third largest in the global music industry. 

He established the Follow Your Heart Scholarship as a mission to extend the same opportunities he had growing up to the young men and women of Grenada, Mississippi.
