Please join R.H. Boyd for the Legacy Ball on June 17, 2022, at the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown in celebration of our 125th anniversary. This momentous occasion will be marked by fellowship with family, friends, community partners, and more. It will be a fun-filled night of music, food, and dancing, as we honor those that have supported our company and community for generations. Additionally, recipients of the R.H. Boyd Humanitarian, Service, and Excellence Awards will be recognized. This affair will surely be a night to remember.

The Legacy Ball is the concept of Dr. LaDonna Boyd, fifth-generation President/CEO of the R.H. Boyd family of companies and proceeds from the event will benefit the Boyd Family Endowment Program through R.H. Boyd Company (a 501 (c)(3) organization), which provides scholarships and grants to university students and community organizations. The Ball will take place during our Vision Conference, which is a dynamic, family-friendly leadership training and education conference.

Announcements regarding entertainment, keynote speaker, and award recipients are forthcoming. Hotel accommodations are available at a discounted rate at the Sheraton Grand Nashville Downtown hotel. Please visit the links below for additional details.

Featured Entertainment



Louis York is the creation of multi-GRAMMY nominated songwriting and production duo Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony who left the City of Angels for Music City to open Weirdo Workshop, their company and label that produces music for other artists and musicians, including themselves, as well as all-female band The Shindellas. 

With a discography that covers multiple genres, including Pop, R&B, Gospel, and Country, Kelly and Harmony havecreated music for icons like Michael & Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion; Chart toppers Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Miley Cyrus; R&B Divas Fantasia, Ledisi, Jazmine Sullivan and K. Michelle; along with Christina Aguilera, Ne-Yo, Mary J Blige, John Legend, Pit Bull, Jason Derulo and many more. 

It doesn’t matter how long, how many transitions or how many genres they have experienced, Kelly and Harmony found themselves searching for one thing, and one thing alone - GREAT ART. As self-proclaimed “Weirdos” (an affectionate name they and their followers call themselves), Louis York has pushed the envelope with their music to include themes of love, acceptance and social awareness that culminated into an EP trilogy called Masterpiece Theater: Act I, Act II, Act III. Their first song “Clair Huxtable,” an ode to black women quickly became a fan favorite along with other releases “Things I Should Have Said,” “Slow Motion,” “Don’t Play,” and many others. And now, they are working on a new project, set to be announced in late 2019. 

With the release of their debut album American Griots, Louis York challenges what two black men making music in today’s musical climate are capable of achieving. Their Weirdo Workshop umbrella, which is making waves in Nashville and diversifying Music City, is developing signees The Shindellas, all while bringing their vision as Louis York to the masses. 

Performing as Louis York, they have played across the U.S. in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta, D.C., just to name a few packing venues and leaving attendees hungry for more and in amazement over the group’s creativity, energy and stage presence. 

They are also highly sought after by local and national organizations as speakers and panelists for hosted events for GRAMMY-U, the National Museum of African American Music, Leadership Music and Leadership Nashville, and many others. Through their own Weirdo Workshop programs, Deep Fried Veggies, the two are intently focused on speaking to high school and college students about music, business and life; and Tiny Book Club develops and engages discussion that broadens perspectives, creates cultural awareness and provides human connections and interaction around impactful pieces of literature.
