GARY ALLAN: BAKERSFIELD BALLADEER

280x210

Atlantic City WeeklyThe traditional side of country music is hard to find these days. Country radio and country music charts are dominated by what I call the “backward baseball cap brigade,” a bunch of sound-alike male singers whose love of rock and pop have flooded the country radio airwaves and made it a lot harder for traditional country to find a place at modern country radio stations.

MCA Nashville’s Gary Allan has teamed with the Bethesda, MD based Yellow Ribbon Fund and a group of students from Clarksville Academy by sponsoring the Little Heroes Ball in Clarksville, TN this weekend.  The event is designed to replace a bad memory with a great memory while providing wounded warriors and their families with a special evening to remember.

The idea of the Little Heroes Ball resonated with Allan who said, “I’ve met a lot of Wounded Warriors over the years,” says Allan, “but I don’t think people think enough of the impact their injuries have on the whole family, especially their children. I saw an article on this event and it brought that into focus and made me want to help these kids have a night where they could put all the worry behind them.”

The ball is being held at the Clarksville Country Club this Friday.

Those wishing to make donations of money or giveaway items can contact Jessica Allen by email at jessica@yellowribbonfund.org or call 240-223-1180.
