Country music lovers, here's your chance to celebrate your favorite genre and support a good cause. On Friday, Dec. 9, Nationwide Children's Hospital is teaming up with Songs for Sound for a Behind the Music event. Songs for Sound is a Nashville organization that strives to create awareness and raise funds for pediatric deafness and cochlear implants.

Behind the Music will take place at The Bluestone in downtown Columbus. Hosted by WCOL's popular morning DJ Woody Johnson, the evening will feature Nashville songwriters who have penned hits for country greats like Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney. There will also be live entertainment, auctions, food and cocktails. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the cochlear implant program at Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Tickets are $85 per person, or $150 a couple. Purchase them online at songsforsound.com.
