Country Stars Announced for Veterans Day Stars and Strings Concert
CBS Radio's acoustic Stars and Strings concert is set for Nov. 11 at the Chicago Theatre, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit Folds of Honor. Founded in 2007, the organization's mission is to provide educational support to the spouses and children of soldiers who have either been injured or killed in service to the United States.
Hunter Hayes, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Little Big Town and the Band Perry round out the bill for the event, presented by the United Association's Veterans in Piping program, which offers returning veterans a career in the union pipe trade.
"Our service men and women sacrifice every day to protect our country, and they deserve our appreciation and gratitude," says CBS Radio VP/Country Programming and WUSN/Chicago PD Jeff Kapugi in a press release. "Stars and Strings will salute and honor their efforts, as well as provide support and awareness to a very important and worthwhile cause."
“It’s really cool to be part of Stars and Strings at the Chicago Theatre honoring our veterans with a bunch of Nashville stars and friends of mine,” Bentley adds. “The tickets are going to benefit the Folds of Honor, a foundation that is really important to me, that helps the children of deceased and wounded veterans go to college. It’s going to be fun — a chance to play country music, honor our veterans and raise money for a great cause. That’s awesome for me, and I feel lucky to be a part of it.”
Pre-sale tickets for the event are available from Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 10AM CT through Thursday, Oct. 1 at 10PM CT, with Chase card members able to gain early access to tickets and a VIP sound check package. General ticket sales begin on Friday, Oct 2 at 10AM CT via Ticketmaster. A limited number of tickets will also be available to win by listening to CBS Radio country music and news/talk stations.
