Wake Up and Dream: A Tribute to Benji Wilhoite
More than a dozen friends and colleagues of actor and musician Benji Wilhoite, a Cartersville native who died suddenly at the age of 41, will honor his memory by performing Wilhoite's original music at this free concert.
Wilhoite, who passed away March 14, 2011, while living in New York, may be best known for his performance of the song Rocky Top Tennessee in the movie Six Pack, but also had roles in several films and TV movies and series.
Wilhoite also was an "extraordinary musician who had an extensive catalog of brilliant songs that deserve to be heard by the masses," according to a group of his friends and fellow artists, which include Bartow County resident and actor Jim Adams and Cartersville musicians Donny Hammonds and Donovan Cox.
