Tay Humphrey

spotlight show • Tay Humphrey, an up-and-coming country singer — and Jordan High School graduate — will perform at The Fallen Brothers Foundation Benefit Concert. The foundation was started by Darren Lewis, who lost a friend to suicide more than eight years ago. Then, in 2009, his teenage son Justin committed suicide. The organization raises money to bring awareness and information on alcohol abuse and bullying. All of the Fallen Brothers are alumni of Cyprus High School, and it is in their memory that scholarships are given each year to Cyprus students. Humphrey, who has lived in Nashville since 2007, was inspired by the foundation to co-write the song "Change Your Mind," about suicide. "I wanted to write a song that says that before you stick a needle in your arm or grab a gun, God is watching you," he said during a recent interview. "There's always something you can speak to." Humphrey, who grew up on a steady diet of Waylon Jennings, Steve Earle and Garth Brooks, is planning to release his debut EP later this year. The album, he said, features Grammy-nominated producer Charlie Kelley. The first single, "Like I Don't Love You," was written by Bryan Simpson and Ashley Gorley — who co-wrote several big hits such as "Good Girl" by Carrie Underwood, "Start a Band" by Keith Urban & Brad Paisley, and "Running Out of Moonlight," Randy Houser's recent single. Opening for Humphrey will be local band Monrovia.
