Musicians Clay Cook, Larry Jon Wilson, Jan Smith and Pat Terry are set to come together for a night of music to benefit the late Gainesville-born songwriter John Jarrard.

The music will begin at 7 p.m. Sunday at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. with The Connective Panel Series, which helps independent musicians learn the music business. The topic for the panel discussion will be "What you need to know to succeed in the music business."

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for the concert.

Jarrard, who died in 2001 of complications from diabetes, moved to Nashville in 1977.

He wrote 11 songs that went No. 1 on the country charts for artists such as Alabama, Tracy Lawrence and Diamond Rio.

Recently, Jarrard was nominated for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the panel discussion are $20 and $15 for ASCAP and GMIA members; tickets to the evening show are $20.

Both can be purchased for $35.

Eddie’s Attic is located at 515-B N. McDonough St. in Decatur.
