About Countrified Rock for Research
A few years ago, Tamra was introduced to country music song-writer, Jeffrey Steele, by her friend Julie Shirley. When Jeffrey offered to perform at a charity concert for Tamra in support of her fundraising efforts for Parkinson’s research, she and Julie founded Countrified Rock for Research. The first event was hosted in 2003. Over the years, largely because of Jeffrey’s amazing talents as a producer, entertainer and prolific songwriter, this concert has become a tremendous event that has increased the team’s fundraising exponentially. In total, Team Cantore has raised and donated over $750,000 for Parkinson’s research. This year’s event will be our 13th year featuring headliner Jeffrey Steele.
