We Believe in the Importance of Giving Back
Here are some examples of our artists putting others first:
Sammy Kershaw and Sean Payton Benefit The Gulf
“I am truly humbled to be selected as this year’s Honorary Chair,” Sammy says. “Sean and I share the same passion for the people of Louisiana and we are willing to do whatever we can to see our state and its people recover from yet another devastating tragedy. I look forward to working together to raise money for those who have been hit the hardest by the oil spill in the Gulf. I remain committed to using every resource available to lend a helping hand to Louisiana’s people.”
Gord Bamford Foundation
The idea of creating a foundation to support Gord’s philanthropy work was born after Gord held his first annual charity golf tournament in 2008. As word spread of the event’s success, telephones began to ring. A large number of groups and organizations wanted Gord to help out in some fashion with their various fundraisers. While Gord found it very difficult not being able to reach out to these groups, he thought a Foundation might be the answer. As a result, the Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation was born.
Enation + Not For Sale
A global non-profit dedicated to ending the atrocity of human trafficking, child-trafficking, and the sex-slave industry. We must not be silent. I am not for sale. You are not for sale. No one should be for sale.
Josh Gracin: Golf & Guitars
Josh Gracin has teamed up with fellow country artists such as Jack Ingram, Justin Moore, Chris Young, Love and Theft, and many more, to participate in Golf & Guitars, which is a pro-am golf tournament and benefit concert raising money for different children’s charities throughout Sacramento, California. He has also supported the City of Hope foundation by playing in the celebrity softball challenge. The City of Hope raises money to help cure and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Taylor Hicks: Alabama Tornado Recovery
Members of country supergroup Alabama put together a show to help their tornado-ravaged home state, and they recruited quite a list of famous friends, including Alabama native Taylor Hicks to help them out.
John Berry: Georgia Storm Benefit
John Berry returned to his home state of Georgia to aid victims of the storms that ravaged the area on January 22, killing nearly 20 and destroying hundreds of homes and doing over $100 million in damages. On February 26, Berry joined Buddy Jewell, Ray Scott, Cyndi Thomson, and others for the “South Georgia Strong” tornado relief benefit concert at the UGA Conference Center in Tifton, Georgia.
