STEPHEN COCHRAN Returns to Michigan For Hometown Show!

Nashville, TN (March 26, 2010) – STEPHEN COCHRAN returns to his hometown for a show! This Saturday, March 27, Stephen is scheduled to take the stage starting at 8 PM, at The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, Michigan! Sharing the stage with Stephen are Michigan-based acts, Julianne, Austin Scott Trio, Annabelle Road, plus special guest Buffy Lawson.

Stephen will be available for media interviews prior to his show. Tickets are $10 in advance ($12 at the door) and are available for purchase by calling 248.858.9333 OR visiting the following website: Stephen Cochran at The Crofoot Ballroom. Veterans receive a special discount into the show.

This is the first time Stephen heads home for a show since last year’s Detroit Hoedown.

Last weekend, Stephen traveled to Georgia to participate in the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach and 2nd Annual Georgia Freedom Ride benefit events. Fifteen hours later after stopping to recharge in Nashville, he was back on the road to St. Louis, Missouri, for a Veteran Affairs-related event. Tomorrow night, Stephen will play The Neon Armadillo in Fort Wayne, Indiana, before heading to Michigan!

Stephen recently accepted the invitation to be the United States Department of Veteran Affairs Research Week 2010 speaker and will be traveling to Washington, D.C. in April to kick off his work with the V.A.!He will speak and give a special performance to veterans. A new video project which aims to inform veterans on the types of research being done on post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and to offer hope through those research efforts will be revealed. The new video features Stephen and his band alongside many veteran volunteers from the Nashville V.A, The Veteran War Memorial, and the Nashville V.A. Hospital. For additional information about the United States Department of Veteran Affairs (V.A.), visit http://www.research.va.gov.

After fighting for our country in Afghanistan and Iraq, an injury left Stephen’s back broken in six places and, subsequently, paralyzed from the waist down. Repercussions from his experiences also caused Stephen to also suffer from PTSD. Were it not for the V.A. and their research efforts, Stephen would not have made a full recovery after enduring a kyphoplasty operation, eventually enabling him to walk again. Music aside, helping others cope with PTSD is not simple a priority for Stephen; it is his personal lifelong mission.
