Charlie Daniels To Perform At Lipscomb University

Charlie Daniels will perform for military families as part of the inaugural stop on the 2012 Charlie Daniels’ Scholarships for Heroes Tour to support David Lipscomb University’s Yellow Ribbon Enhancement Program. The free show takes place Tues., March 6 at Lipscomb’s Allen Arena.

The 2012 tour, which includes Chris Young, Darryl Worley, The Grascals and actor Gary Sinise, is designed to create awareness of the Veterans Yellow Ribbon education program. Lipscomb offers Post 9/11 GI Bill veterans and their family a tuition-free, or greatly-reduced tuition rate for graduate or undergraduate degrees.

Tickets are available at all Middle Tennessee Daily’s locations and the Lipscomb University box office. Since its inception in fall 2009, Lipscomb’s Yellow Ribbon Program has grown from 20 original participants to more than 150 veterans enrolled this spring.

“Our veterans know that freedom isn’t free, but we think their education should be,” said Jim Humphrey, Assistant Dean of Campus Life/Director of Veterans Services at Lipscomb.
