Kix Brooks, Charlie Daniels, Amy Grant, Gretchen Wilson and emcee Larry Gatlin will perform tonight (3/23) at 7 PM at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena to raise awareness and funds for the college’s Yellow Ribbon Program which offers military veterans and their family members free or reduced tuition rates. David Corlew is acting as the show’s producer. A limited number of tickets for the evening event are on sale for $10 at the Lipscomb University box office and through Ticketmaster.
Prior to this evening’s concert, a daylong symposium will feature General Tommy Franks (Ret.), Major General Bob Dees (Ret.), General B.B. Bell (Ret.) and WebMD founder Jeff Arnold.
The Bluebird Café will be a part of this summer’s Country Throwdown Tour, with a namesake tent featuring songwriter/artist performances. On March 24 and April 21, Nashvillians will get a tour preview at the legendary cafe. Ashley Ray, Brad Tursi, Dave Pahanish, Jedd Hughes, Sarah Buxton, Walker Hayes, Troy Olsen and Heather Morgan are scheduled for both dates.
Then they kick-off the Country Throwdown Tour on May 14, with daytime sets on the Bluebird stage and nightly sets during the main stage set changes.
