About the Andrew Marshall Dorff Memorial Fund:
Father Steve, brother Stephen, and sisters Callie and Kaitlyn established the Andrew Marshall Dorff Memorial Fund to honor the memory of their son/brother Andrew, a talented Nashville songwriter known for writing songs for country stars such as Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Old Dominion, Hunter Hayes, and more. Andrew died unexpectedly in 2016. His songwriting was recognized and respected, but he had many other gifts that were admired and loved by his family and a wide circle of friends. Through this fund, Andrew’s family makes contributions to support nonprofit organizations that celebrate Andrew’s life and talents and to honor his memory.
