Stars Shine For Charlie Daniels Benefit Concert at Lipscomb


Charlie Daniels and Luke Bryan

Luke Bryan and Lee Greenwood were the surprise guests Tuesday night (March 25) at Nashville’s Lipscomb University for the Copperweld Charlie Daniels’ Scholarship for Heroes event. Additional performers included the Charlie Daniels Band, Kellie Pickler, The Grascals, the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters, and the American Hitmen, who were on the bill to celebrate military veterans and to raise funds for the national Veterans Yellow Ribbon education program.

Greenwood performed early during the event with a rendition of his anthem, “God Bless the USA.”

“The sacrifices these veterans and their families have made help keep our country free,” stated Bryan. “We should take care of them in whatever ways that we can, and that includes a good college education.”

Proceeds from the event benefited Lipscomb University’s Charlie Daniels Scholarship for Heroes Fund.

The event, sponsored by Copperweld, Humana, Grand Avenue, Twice Daily, Clear Channel, Shofner Vision Center, Lipscomb, Glover Group Entertainment, and produced by David Corlew & Associates, was streamed live worldwide by Blue Scout Media and will also be broadcast to all US military bases in coming weeks by the Pentagon Channel and Armed Forces TV.
