Frizzell Family Welcomes New Baby Boy - Ryman Shafer Frizzell

Award winning, Nashville based Artist, Corey Frizzell (of the famed Country Music Frizzell family) and his wife Toni, have announced that they have welcomed a new son into the world with the perfect Country Music tribute name.

Frizzell took to his Facebook and announced, “Meet Ryman Shafer Frizzell, 7lbs 8oz and 20” long. Mama and baby are doing great!”

Ryman Shafer Frizzell entered the world in Nashville, TN on Dec 26th 2015 at 9:22pm, carrying the namesake of legendary singer/ songwriter, Sanger D. “Whitey” Shafer, whom was the best friend to the late Lefty Frizzell the last six years of his life and in a poetic twist has become very close to Corey forty years later. Whitey and Lefty penned timeless songs like, “That’s The Way Love Goes,” “I Never Go Around Mirrors” and “Bandy The Rodeo Clown” to name just a few. Baby Frizzell’s first name was chosen as a tribute to Corey’s musical heritage, taking it from Country Music’s “Mother Church,” the Ryman Auditorium, where many of the Frizzell family members have performed.

In Whitey fashion, the eighty one year old songsmith had this to say while holding baby Ryman, “I’m so excited. I’m holding the latest Frizzell. I’ve never had anyone name an offspring after me. Tracy and I love him already!”

Ryman’s mommy, Toni, is an aspiring song writer and full time award winning Real Estate Agent, partnered with Leigh Gillig, of the top selling team, The Gillig Group at Keller Williams based out of Spring Hill, TN. She’s garnered numerous accolades, including being named a “Super Agent” placing her in the top 3% in customer service.

Corey falls in the middle of the six children spanning four decades of Allen Frizzell, former Nashville recording artist and younger brother of the Legendary Lefty Frizzell and Country Star, David Frizzell. Corey is an in high demand, award winning, visual artist that has found a niche in the country music world. He’s come full circle to his music roots being named Nashville’s Artist to the Stars for his artistic collaboration with some of music's biggest names, including Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Emi Sunshine and Jerrod Niemann to name a few.

Frizzell Earns 4th Consecutive AMG Heritage Award Nomination for Visual Artist of the Year

Nashville's Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell, has been nominated for the 2015 Artists Music Guild Heritage Award for Visual Artist of the Year, marking the 4th consecutive year for this nomination. Frizzell is a 3 time Visual Artist of the Year Award recipient.

Unfortunately, I regret that I will not be able to attend the up-coming live Awards Show, hosted by American Idol Alum, Bucky Convington. My wife Toni and I are expecting the arrival of baby Ryman in early Jan. Our Dr. has advised us not to travel great distances and stay close to home. It's my understanding that nominees are not eligible to be awarded if not present at the live Awards Show. Under the current circumstances, I must relinquish my eligibility for the award, but would like to wish luck to all the other nominees and congratulations to whom ever will take home the 2015 Visual Artist of the Year Award. Thank you to the AMG's, The Academy of Music Arts and Sciences, Inc. and AMG President, David L Cook. I hope to be back next year! - Corey Frizzell

IT'S GONNA BE A BOY!

Nashville's Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell and wife Toni, are expecting a baby, due in Jan of 2016 and are proud to reveal the name and gender.

We chose name Ryman in honor of my musical heritage and Shafer after our dear friend Whitey Shafer. For those that don't know, the Ryman Auditorium is often called the "Mother Church of Country Music," housing the original Grand Ole Opry, where many of my family members stood and performed. Whitey Shafer was the best friend to Lefty Frizzell the last six years or so of his life and of course wrote many great songs with him, including "I Never Go Around Mirrors" and "That's The Way Love Goes," to name a couple. - Corey & Toni Frizzell

New March 18th Show Date for Whitey Shafer Tribute Show, Hosted by Moe Bandy

Whitey Shafer Tribute Show postponed to Wed March 18th due to weather! Nashville's Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell, has teamed with Country Music Star, Moe Bandy, to put on an up-coming tribute to Country Music Icon, Whitey Shafer.

"Whitey is a dear friend of mine and a direct connection to my own music heritage. I produced a Shafer Benefit in summer of 2014 with Jerrod Niemann which did great but I believe this show has the potential to be greater." states Corey.

Moe Bandy would humbly tell anyone that he would not have the career he’s had if it weren’t for Whitey Shafer.

Some of Moe’s noteworthy accomplishments are 10 Number One smashes, 40 Top Ten hits, 66 charted releases, 5 Gold albums, ACM/CMA Duet of the Year — and Moe is quick to share, “Whitey wrote my first 5 hit singles and over the course of my career, I have cut 33 Whitey Shafer songs. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if Whitey hadn’t come to Music Row.”

Whitey Shafer and childhood hero Lefty Frizzell were not only best friends, they became a co-writing duo to be reckoned with. Together, they penned the country standards “That’s the Way Love Goes,” “I Never Go Around Mirrors,” and Moe’s “Bandy The Rodeo Clown,” among many others.

Shafer went on to write some of the most momentous country songs of the last four decades, including “I Just Started Hatin’ Cheatin’ Songs Today” (Moe Bandy), “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” (George Strait), “All My Exes Live in Texas” (George Strait), “I Wonder Do You Think of Me” (Keith Whitley), and his tribute to his friend, “Lefty’s Gone” (George Strait). Of late, Shafer has suffered from a lung disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Moe Bandy proudly states, “I’ve had no problem pulling together an impressive lineup for this show.” The already impressive list includes Rhonda Vincent, Mark Wills, Tea Goans, Johnny Lee, Joe Stampley, Becky Hobbs, T. Graham Brown, Gene Watson, Jeannie Seely, David Frizzell, Dallas Frazier, Eddy Raven, John Conlee, Jimmy Fortune, James Carothers, newly signed WMN’s traditionalist William Michael Morgan, Moore & Moore, and the list continues to grow.

Please join us for an amazing evening, benefiting an amazing man. March 18, 2015 Doors at 6pm, show at 7pm Tickets are $20 at the door.
