Musicians Flock to Franklin's Benefit Jam for 11-Year-Old Girl

Billy Dawson headlines the performers who will play from noon until eight Saturday, in the 10th annual Franklin Benefit Jam on the courthouse lawn.

This year the money is helping defray the medical bills for Gracie Powell, who has dystonia, which can cause severe muscle spasms.

"The whole thing is set up so that people can see that we're putting on a big show," says host Tim Ferguson. "We want people to come in and enjoy it and then open your hearts and your purses, give back and especially to help this little girl. She's facing surgery on Monday morning and we want to help her family with a lot of medical costs and that's where everything goes to."

Portions of Dawson's concert may be filmed for his first music video.

There will also be a cornhole tournament at 2:00 p.m.
