Sherwood said, “I’m humbled that musicians, who are as independent as they are varied, are supporting my campaign. Music is the universal language – the language of peace. I can’t think of a better way to come together, learn more about one another, and join together to address the many challenges facing North Carolina. I am looking forward to it and hope lots of folks will turn out to hear these very-talented, home-grown songwriters.”

He concluded, “The Young Democrats of Caldwell County are making a real difference in our community. Their enthusiasm and determination to make Caldwell County a place that is welcoming and inclusive is impressive and inspiring. I encourage folks to come out to the concert to learn more about the Young Democrats.”
