I don’t think there’s any country music fan who doesn’t know that Blake Shelton likes to shoot things. You can’t follow him on Twitter without knowing that he likes sitting in tree stands, holding his gun, and by his own admission (be it fact or not), drinking his beer.
Now, Blake and the National Rifle Association are joining forces to raise money for Nashville. This is the first NRA Country sporting day shoot, and the group hopes to make it a national event. The event will be held at the Tennessee Clay Target Complex in Nashville, and will benefit all of Middle Tennessee’s flood relief efforts through the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The event will be held June 10.
"I am honored that I get to be part of NRA Country’s inaugural clay shoot, and that the National Rifle Association has pledged all proceeds from the event to aid Middle Tennessee flood relief efforts," says Blake. "This is what is great about CMA Music Festival. We get to do something we love to do, with our fans, and help raise awareness for a worthy cause while having a great time."
Thanks to Blake, and the NRA, for joining the many people who have been working toward getting Nashville and other areas of Middle Tennessee affected by the flooding, back to the way things were.
