Artists Score TV Slots: Adkins, Flatts, More

Last Friday (9/25), Capitol recording artist, Trace Adkins performed an acoustic concert at a local fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization devoted to helping wounded warriors by raising public awareness and offering programs to rehabilitate and reintegrate injured service members from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Earlier this year, Adkins donated proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project from his 2009 ACM Performance of "Til The Last Shot's Fired" with the West Point Glee Club made available on iTunes after the show's broadcast. More than $100,000 has been raised for the WWP.
