Tim Montana Wraps Inaugural ‘American Thread’ Benefit
Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group artist Tim Montana held his sold-out inaugural “American Thread” benefit concert on Oct. 2 at Nashville’s City Winery. The special concert event and the following day’s clays shoot raised over $334,000 for people in uniform, benefiting Special Ops Xcursions, a nonprofit that supports U.S. special operations forces and their families.
Special surprise guest performers included Colbie Caillat, Collective Soul, Darryl Worley, Elvie Shane, Michael Ray and Tyler Farr. The event also featured guest speaker Sgt. Omar “Crispy” Avila, a war hero and U.S. Army veteran. Action sports legend Travis Pastrana and his sidekick, Street Bike Tommy, were also in attendance. After this week’s events – four years since the clays shoot’s inception – Montana has officially raised over 1.1 million dollars for Special Ops Xcursions.
