Benefit Concert and Vigil Being Held for Holly Bobo, Whitney Duncan’s Missing Cousin, Tonight
Today, August 13, marks four months since the disappearance of Holly Bobo, cousin of country singer Whitney Duncan, who was dragged into the woods from her home in Decatur County, Tenn. by a camouflaged man back in April. Tonight, a vigil will be held in her honor. Additionally, an all-night benefit concert in Nashville will help raise funds for the Bobo family’s efforts.
Bobo was last seen by her brother around 7:30AM on April 13, just as she was leaving for school at the University of Tennessee Martin, where she is a Nursing student. Family and friends will come together at the Decatur County Fairgrounds Saturday night at 7PM for a candlelight vigil with respect to Bobo.
A few hundred miles away at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville, Tenn., a concert will kick off at 9:30 with performances from headliner Julia & DC, as well as Heather Cohen, Amanda Williams and more — including a special guest. That benefit show will run until 3AM, with Matt Snook, Steven Gallagher, Kellie Lynne closing out the evening.
The concert will be streamed live online by Dream Maker Nation, and donations can be made by those watching from their computer screens. All proceeds from the event will go to the Bobo family, and items will be auctioned off from country stars Buddy Jewel, Burns & Poe, Jim ‘The Moose’ Brown and Vince Gill.
Anyone who might have information concerning Holly Bobo’s disappearance is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
