Pictured L-R are Joe Rogers - keys, Derek George - guitar, Travis Thibodeaux (co-writer of “The Who Dat Roll”) - drums, Dave Guidry - bass, Steve Williams – vocals, and Charlie Hutto on guitar.

burnsBurns & Poe were among the more than 30 artists who participated in the 27th Annual Christmas4Kids Tour Bus Show on  Dec. 15 at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Hendersonville, Tenn.

Gretchen Wilson, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Keith Anderson, and Anna Garrott were all on hand to show off over 70 custom tour buses. Welcoming more than 2,500 folks, the event raised more than $8,600 for needy children. The following day that money was used to treat more than 400 children to a Wal-Mart Christmas shopping spree and tour bus ride.
