(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Show Dog Nashvilles Carters Chord are hosting "Carters Chord -- A Family Affair" on Monday, June 16 at Nashvilles Douglas Corner Cafe. The event is a benefit for Safe Haven, a local non-profit shelter for homeless families -- one of the few that isnt government supported and helps entire families find stable employment and housing.

In addition to Carters Chord, the dynamic new sibling trio of Becky, Emily and Joanna Robertson, performers will include Randy Houser, Steve Jones, The Moffatts, Bobby Pinson and the Waymore Blues Band. The latters participation stands to reason, considering Waylon Jennings backing band figures prominently in Carters Chords backstory. Their parents, Barny and Carter Robertson, toured with Waylon until the birth of their oldest daughter, Becky.

Carters Chord will digitally release their self-titled debut Show Dog Nashville album the next day (June 17). The sisters have writer credits on five of the albums 10 songs, and their mother Carter Robertson wrote and sang backing vocals on the song "Summer Early 60s." The album also features the bands new single "Different Breed."  Of course, Becky, Emily and Joanna made their major label debut as children singing on Waylon Jennings country album for kids, Cowboys, Sisters, Rascals & Dirt.  Carters Chord can be seen on CMT Pure in their music video for "Different Breed" which features behind-the-scenes footage of the group with hanging out with Jennings, in the studio with Toby Keith and on the road.  They are currently preparing to go on tour with Keith, and will celebrate the eve of their album release in support of a worthy effort.

Beyond scheduled performances, surprise guests are also expected to appear at the benefit. Donations will be accepted at the door. To find out more about Safe Haven, go to
