posted Sep 7, 2011, 7:13 AM by Crissy Nolen
Christ United Methodist Church, 3300 Austin Parkway, Sugar Land, will host Nash3 in concert from 7 to 8:30 on the evening of the tenth anniversary of September 11th. This concert will be presented in honor of all fire fighters, police officers, EMTʼs, first responders, search and rescue team members, hospital emergency room personnel, active military service personnel, and veterans. A special time of recognition will be held in between sets. There will be a display area for concert-goers to leave notes, prayers, or flowers and light a candle in memory of those who lost their lives that day and have since in defending our country from further terrorist acts.

Nash3 is a dynamic singing-songwriting trio. Over the past years they have blended their collective talents into a truly unique, harmony-driven, one-of-a-kind sound. Bill and Kim Nash and their youngest son, Jimmy, make up the trio. In 2004, Billʼs and Kimʼs “In God We Still Trust” became the number one best-selling independent record. Their latest project is an album of songs entitled “Heaven Is Real”. Other songs theyʼve written include, “Up Where We Belong”, “Let It Be You”, “They Asked About You”, and “Seven New Stars”, written in memory of the lost Challenger astronauts. Theyʼve performed in numerous television appearances, with such artists as Reba McIntire, Johnny Cash, and Marty Robbins, written theme songs for Ford, Dodge, the U.S.O. and other civic groups, and sponsor a relief effort called “Building Bridges of Hope”, a humanitarian charity that supports “Champions Kids Camp”, “Forgotten Angels”, and “Escape Family Resource Center”.

The concert is free; however, a love offering will be received. Childcare will be provided and a light reception will be held afterward.
