Champion of Children

Champion of Children returned to The Rustic on October 27 with an outdoor dinner and concert featuring Texas country musician Cory Morrow. The event raised funds for Dallas CASA. All proceeds support the volunteer advocates who serve children who have experienced abuse or neglect and are living in the protective care of the state.

The evening’s featured performer, was singer-songwriter Cory Morrow, he is part of the “Texas Country” or “Red Dirt” music scene, which differentiates itself from Nashville-based country music. Morrow’s most well-known songs include “Lonesome,” “21 Days” and “Lead Me On.” He sings about his own life and experiences and has performed in some of Texas’ most legendary venues, including Luckenbach and Gruene Hall.
