Critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Sunny Sweeney will headline the Air National Guard (ANG) Stage during the Country Throwdown Tour (CTD), Fired up by Kingsford, which kicks off today (5/18), in Gulfport, MS. Throughout the 20-city summer trek, she will lend her voice and time to ANG’s presence on the tour.
“I am so honored to perform on the Air National Guard Stage. Being married to a police officer, I’m very aware of what our service people sacrifice on a daily basis. I can’t wait to meet with members of the ANG and fans this summer,” said Sweeney.
In each city, Sweeney will sign autographs at the ANG booth. There will be some surprises along the way, including a private, acoustic set and Meet & Greet on Sweeney’s bus during a couple of stops.
Sweeney also will join other artists on the tour for the ANG Grateful States Campaign, which recognizes the ANG airmen and families through photos and videos posted online by citizens across the United States. Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore, Josh Thompson, Eric Paslay and more are slated for the CTD tour.
