Morgan heads NRA fest
Friday, April 15, 2011
– Craig Morgan will headline the first annual NRA Country Jam on Friday, April 29 in Pittsburgh.
Sarah Darling and Due West will open the show.
A former service member and active supporter of the U.S. military, Morgan, together with NRA Country and Bushnell, designated a portion of the proceeds from the NRA Country Jam to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation. Founded by Iraq veteran Major Dan Rooney, Folds of Honor provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of U.S. military service members killed or disabled during service. Since its founding in 2007, the foundation has generated more than $9.8 million for post-secondary education scholarships.
"Not only are we going to give the fans a killer show at the first-ever NRA Country Jam," said Morgan, "it's also incredibly rewarding to be able to support Folds of Honor in honoring our service members and their families."
