Craig Morgan to Headline First Annual NRA Country Jam
Presented by Bushnell and Folds of Honor. Sarah Darling and Due West to open the show at Pittsburgh's Stage AE
Nashville, Tenn. –-(Ammoland.com)- Country Music superstar and celebrated TV host Craig Morgan has been tapped to headline the first annual NRA Country Jam, presented by Bushnell and Folds of Honor.
The concert event will take place Friday, April 29 at Pittsburgh's Stage AE with singers Sarah Darling and Due West set to open what promises to be an energetic, high-octane show.
A former service member and active supporter of our U.S. military, Morgan, together with NRA Country and Bushnell, have 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,” shares Morgan, “it's also incredibly rewarding to be able to support Folds of Honor in honoring our service members and their families.”
In addition to presenting the inaugural NRA Country Jam, Bushnell also partners with the celebrated entertainer on his top-rated Outdoor Channel show, Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors. With the second season set to debut this summer, you can bet the cameras will be rolling on April 29 to capture all the energy and excitement of the first-ever NRA Country Jam.
