Country music superstar Martina McBride was announced today as the headliner for the August 21st 3rd Annual Hymns Hams & Jams benefiting the Shalom Foundation. Proceeds from the event held at Nashville’s Loveless Barn will go directly towards The Shalom Foundation’s medical program in Guatemala. The concert will also feature a live auction with legendary songwriter Bob DiPiero. GAC and Sirius/XM personality Storme Warren will emcee the event.
Auction items will include tickets to the 2012 World Series, Garth Brooks and Sugarland autographed guitars, a private bus party, concert tickets, backstage VIP experiences and much more! Tickets for the concert are available now and can be purchased through The Shalom Foundation by calling (615) 595-5811 or by e-mailing the Executive Director, Allison Bender, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Shalom Foundation recently brought 14 year-old Angelica Morales to Vanderbilt’s Monroe Carrell Jr’s Children’s Hospital to complete surgery on a complicated vascular malformation which required more resources than were currently available at its Moore Pediatric Surgery Center in Guatemala City.
Tim McGraw‘s charity shoot is bringing in all sorts of firepower. For the first time in the organization’s history, a “Tug McGraw Foundation Celebrity Clay Shoot” will be held on Tuesday, June 5th at the Nashville Gun Club. Proceeds from the event will go directly to the foundation to assist military service members who have been affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Each team will makes its way through an award-winning 15-station sporting clay shoot at the Nashville Gun Club. Unlike trap or skeet shoots, clay shoots don’t have repeatable targets and are often unpredictable with live-quarry shooting. This shoot will feature 15 teams made up of 4 shooters, a professional, and a celebrity.
Warren recently served as the emcee of the 2nd Annual NRA Country/ACM Celebrity Shoot in Las Vegas. His participation in that event and his love of the great outdoors make him a natural fit with NRA Country Artist of the Month promotion.
“There is nothing better than soaking up the great outdoors. I spend most of my free time either by a river with my fly rod or hiking the trails with my kids and mutts,” says Warren.
As part of the April promotion, fans can register to win an autographed Headline Country shirt. Visit the NRA Country website from now through the end of April to register to win.
The superstar singer manged to be here, there and everywhere while being in very few places herself. Everything focused around the release of her highly-anticipated single, “Good Girl,” which was followed by a flurry of activity – either directly involving Carrie or caused by her.
Along with releasing the single, the American Idol winner finally got involved with an online activity, saw the song soar up the charts and even found time for fashion.
Here now a review of her wild (and wildly successful) week:
2/23 “Good Girl” is released to radio and Carrie debuts the song with a live performance at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. Thanks to one of our eagle-eyed readers who found the below video of her performance at the event. It’s pretty special as it’s the very first time she sang the song for the public:
