Colt Ford Benefit Raises $85,000 for Police Officers

Colt Ford.

Colt Ford recently held a benefit concert honoring the memories of two police officers who had been shot in Athens, Georgia. The “Colt Ford And Friends” benefit show raised over $85,000. The event also included a silent auction, private reception and performances by some of his famous friends in support of the policing community. Officer Tony Howard was seriously injured in the shooting, and Officer Elmer “Buddy” Christian fell in the line of duty.

James Otto, Dallas Davidson, Jason Aldean, Rhett Atkins, Edwin McCain, and Brantley Gilbert were some of the special guests who were part of the charity concert.

“I want to say thank you to all of my friends who helped us have such a special night in my hometown. To all the artists who joined in to perform or who donated items to help raise money, y’all are amazing, and I am thankful to call you all friends. This could not have happened without y’all.”

Pictures from the evening will be posted on Coltford.com.

Looks like Australia is going to have one heck of a party next year. Hot on heels of the announcement of Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s first performance together outside of North America, CMC Rocks the Hunter released part one of their lineup for the 2012 festival. Dierks Bentley, Eli Young Band, Craig Campbell and Colt Ford have all been added to the all-star lineup with more performers to be announced at a later day. Wish we could go!

CMC Rocks the Hunter 2012 will take place March 16th to the 18th at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley. It’s an annual country music festival in Australia, which has included superstars Alan Jackson, Taylor Swift, Sugarland, Joe Nichols, Gary Allan and Jack Ingram in past years.

Tickets can be purchased now, and they even have a payment plan to pay off the tickets in monthly payments. There will be a camping site set up for fans, and the entire festival will take place on three stages over three days. Faith and Tim will close out the whole festival on Sunday evening.
