    JUSTIN MOORE AND SCOTT BORCHETTA JOINTLY NAMED HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR BY THE ARMED FORCES FOUNDATION

    April 11, 2014 0 Comments

    The Armed Forces Foundation (AFF) jointly named ACM New Artist of the Year Justin Moore and BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta the “Congressman Bill and Beverly Young Humanitarian of the Year” for their service and commitment to the morale and welfare of military families through the Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” contest and other endeavors. The pair were honored during the 10th annual Congressional Gala in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night (4/9).

    “The work that Patricia Driscoll and the Armed Forces Foundation is doing is extraordinary – and unfortunately – beyond necessary. She and the AFF have identified the real challenges that so many of our troops go through upon their reentry into society. This is the kind of organization that the Big Machine Label Group and I will always support,” said Borchetta.

    “Although extremely grateful, I feel a little uncomfortable being honored at an event where there are decorated war heroes present. I feel that my contributions are much less significant than theirs … they are the true American heroes,” stated Moore. “However, I’m thrilled to know that what I do with the AFF has helped, and that it is appreciated by all. Both of my grandpas served in our military and they, along with my parents, instilled in me what our servicemen and women mean to us. It was an honor to tell some of them face to face last night. God bless our troops and God bless America.”

    The special ceremony brought together more than 75 Members of Congress to help honor our nation’s service members, veterans, and their families – many recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Fort Belvoir’s Warrior Transition Brigade, and from other local installations. Throughout the event, AFF recognized Cessna and individuals for their commitment to the Foundation’s motto of “Serving those who Serve.” Celebrity supporters in attendance included NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, comedian Ron White, chef Anne Burrell, Republic Nashville recording artist Cassadee Pope, Washington Redskin Rob Jackson, among others. Once again, Fox & Friends’ Brian Kilmeade emceed the evening and Foundation President Patricia Driscoll urged those in the room to help those suffering from the invisible wounds.

    About the Armed Forces Foundation The Armed Forces Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, National Guardsmen, Reservists, military families, and veterans. The AFF returns 95 cents of every dollar raised to service members and their families through our programs. Since 2001, the AFF has provided more than $95 million in assistance by covering travel, hotel rooms, home mortgages, car payments and everyday bills for families to be able to stay at their loved ones’ sides during treatment and recovery from wounds suffered during war. With the launch of our Help Save Our Troops campaign, the AFF proactively educates Americans about the hidden wounds of war, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and advocates for those troops and veterans who have suffered these hidden wounds. The ultimate goal of Help Save Our Troops is to reduce military suicides. Through this campaign, the AFF provides counseling services for military families, including children, grants for therapy and addiction counseling, and runs a variety of recreation group therapy programs to boost morale amongst service members, veterans, and their families.

    THE MAVERICKS PERFORM AT HILLSBORO TO RAISE FUNDS FOR WE THE PEOPLE

    March 20, 2014 0 Comments

    On Thursday, March 27, The Mavericks will perform right in the Hillsboro High auditorium for a very special fundraiser for We The People. Tickets are $10 for this distinctive acoustic performance, and doors open at 6:00. There will be a few fabulous items available by silent auction in the lobby, as well as concessions.

    We The People is a civics and government program offered at Hillsboro that turns AP Government students into experts on specific constitutional issues. Under the leadership of AP Government teacher Seth Swihart, We The People team members present a four-minute opening statement in a simulated congressional hearing, followed by six minutes of questions from a panel of judges. The Hillsboro team has represented the state of Tennessee in six of the last 10 national competitions and will again represent Tennessee at the upcoming national competition in Washington, DC. Funds raised at this concert will help offset the approximately $1,500 per student cost of traveling to DC for the competition.

    The Mavericks are self described as a “country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer that emerged from Miami in 1989 with… equal parts innocence, intensity and vintage influences.” Reunited in 2012 after an eight-year pause, the Grammy Award winning band is back, to the delight of fans old and new.

My fans know I'm a straight shooter so I didn't leave anything out. I think there is something for everyone — from my party side to the gentler stuff. I can’t wait to share this new music with the BG Nation.”

    JUST AS I AM is the follow-up to Brantley’s 2012 HALFWAY TO HEAVEN, which has sold over 1 million copies and scored the Georgia native back-to-back #1 hits - PLATINUM “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” and GOLD “Country Must Be Country Wide.” The reigning ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year has also penned the #1 tunes “My Kinda Party” and “Dirt Road Anthem,” both recorded by Jason Aldean.
