WASHINGTON — Singer and songwriter Damien Horne will perform at ASAE’s Summit Awards Dinner, October 3, at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC to honor six outstanding associations in the community.

Horne writes and performs R&B, pop, hip-hop, soul, rock and country. In the Spring of 2010, he joined the country music trio, THE FARM, with fellow band members Nick Hoffman and Krista Marie. THE FARM has a combination of vocal harmonies rooted in country music and a mix of other influences. Their debut single “Home Sweet Home” from their debut self-titled album recently cracked the Top 20 on Billboard.

Entertainment at the Summit Awards is provided by Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau and Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, who are longtime supporters of the association community.

“We have worked with Nashville for 11 years in providing musical talent for the Summit Dinner, so we can honor the great work associations are doing in our community,” said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, CAE. “The Summit Award winners illustrate the outstanding effort and leadership associations play in society. They are fulfilling a need in their communities and making a real difference, and we want to raise awareness about their impact at the national level, so policymakers, organizations, and business and industry understand the influence they have on a global level.”

“It has been our pleasure to host the entertainment for the Summit Dinner each year. Not only is it an opportunity for us to showcase the immense talent coming out of Music City, but it is also our way of honoring the associations who are being celebrated for their spirit of generosity,” said Butch Spyridon, president of the Nashville CVB. “This year we have the talented Damien Horne, who is an artist, musician and songwriter. His musical style crosses several genres and he is the lead singer in THE FARM.”

ASAE will have 1,000 association and nonprofit professionals, and supporters of the association sector at this year’s Summit Awards Dinner, an event to recognize the excellent work in the association community to improve the quality of life through exemplary community-based programs. The six being honored for their work are: American Camp Association, American Society of Civil Engineers, Military Officers Association of America, American Chemical Society, Cook County Farm Bureau, and IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
