Country news, music and lifestyle website Digitalrodeo.com will sponsor Nashville’s first-ever Andy Griggs Celebrity Poker Tournament, to be held Thursday, June 11 at Cadillac Ranch. The winnings from the tournament will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and other charities. Celebrity players from country music, sports, film and television, as well as professional poker players, are scheduled to participate. Confirmed attendees will be posted online at www.DigitalRodeo.com and www.AndyGriggs.com. Country artist and World Series of Poker participant, Andy Griggs, will host the event, beginning at 2 p.m. on Thursday (6/11). The event will also include an in-the-round jam session and a silent auction and door prizes. Griggs is the first country artist to receive sponsorship into the main event at the World Series of Poker. He outlasted every non-poker celebrity in the tournament, including his sponsor, WSOP champion Doyle Brunson. Griggs went on to register an impressive finish in the top 12 percent of the 2008 competition. Leading up to the tournament, DigitalRodeo.com will feature a weekly poker tip from Griggs on his profile page at www.DigitalRodeo.com/AndyGriggs.
