West Webster Fire Department Tragedy Victims & Families
Award-winning country act Confederate Railroad will be performing a benefit concert at Main Street Armory in Rochester, NY on Friday, February 8th with 30% of all ticket sales benefiting the victims and their families of the West Webster Fire Department tragedy.
West Webster Firefighters will be in attendance and “passing the boot” and concert officials hope to raise thousands. Supporting the show will be one of Rochester’s best country bands, Closing Time (CDCTT Artist), Paul Cummings ( CDCTT Artist) and regional act Crows & Jays.
Confederate Railroad first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s with its unique style and sound. Headed by founder and front man Danny Shirley, the former backup band for both David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck got their big break by signing with Atlantic Records. The first single from their self-titled debut album was “She Took It Like A Man”. It went to No. 26, a preview of what was to come. The next two singles, “Jesus and Mama” and “Queen of Memphis” went to the top of the charts. Three more huge hits followed,
“Trashy Women”, “When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back”, and “She Never Cried”. “Trashy” would lead to a Grammy nomination and become their signature song. That album with six hits and nearly three million sales brought Confederate the Academy of Country Music’s Best New Group Award in 1993 as well as numerous nominations from the Country Music Association and the British Country Music Foundation. Their overall totals are 18 charted hits and five million albums sold.
