Craig Morgan Charity Ride & Concert Scheduled for August
Craig Morgan rides again. The singer-songwriter will be joined by Motorcross stars and fellow country singers for his 6th annual Charity Ride and Concert, set for August 11-12 in his hometown of Dickson, Tenn. The event benefits the Craig Morgan Charity Fund, a component of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
Festivities will include performances by Craig, Darryl Worley and HLN "Morning Express" host Robin Meade, with GAC's Nan Kelley serving as emcee. Additionally, Bucky Covington will partake in a dirtbike exhibition and trail ride from Vanleer, Tenn. He'll be joined by Motorcross stars Destry Abbot, Fred Andrews, Cowboy Kenny Bartram, Trey Canard, Randy Hawkins and Kevin Windham.
There's no telling what kind of surprises the Ride and Concert will lead to. Last year, the "This Ole Boy" singer went home with a buzz cut, courtesy of former NFL player Robb Nelson. The new do earned $1,200 for the charity event, which also brought in $12,500 from the auction of a custom dirt bike.
Proceeds from the two-day extravaganza will also go to Billy's Place, which assists foster children throughout Middle Tennessee. Tickets for individual events or the entire weekend may be purchased here or at any Tri Star bank.
