LeeAnn Rimes, Keith Urban, Dolly Parton, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood, and other entertainers, have all donated personal items to an online auction. The proceeds form the auction will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In addition to one of Keith’s old T-shirts, bidders will get to make offers on autographed shirts, their favorite artists’ memorabilia, and even a pair of boots worn by Dwight Yoakam.
St. Jude is a charity that is very near and dear to my heart,” Keith said. “Our fans have always graciously offered their support in past fund raisers we have done for St. Jude, so I think this auction will be a great success”.
To find the online auction, go to www.keithurbanauction.com and while you’re there, just about any of those items would make a great Christmas present … for me, perhaps. *smiling*
Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum did a few concerts together early this spring, including one in Bristol, TN, which I went to and it was great! They are now teaming up again to be part of “CMT On Tour.” The tour will begin at Western North Carolina University on Oct. 8, and finish up on Nov. 22 in Bangor, Maine.
And, Eric Durrance, who opened for Lady A in Bristol, will be opening for them again on the CMT Tour. The tour is scheduled to hit 20 different college towns (Hey! We’re a college town!)… For a complete tour schedule, go to cmttour.com. If these guys get anywhere near you , You will definitely want to go see them!
We’re still waiting for to hear Eric Durrance on the radio, but anyone who has seen him in concert knows it provably won’t be long until we do. He put was a great opening act for Lady Antebellum back in May, and it seems the Country Music Television people think so, too.
Our country favorites all seem to be doing their part in rising money for their favorite charity. Dierks Bently is again hosting Miles & Music for Kids, a celebrity motorcycle ride and concert in Nashville this October.
The event has raised more than $250,000 in the past two years, with all the proceeds going to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. The hour-long ride through Nashville begins at 2 p.m. at the Harley Davidson of Cool Springs, and ends at Riverfront Park. Following the ride, a concert is held at the park featuring Dierks, Tim McGraw, John Rich, and many other performers.
Concert tickets are $20, and the donation to participate in the ride is $50 – which not only gets you into the ride, and the concert, but also gets you a commemorative T-shirt.
