Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich Surprise Veteran With New Home

Campbell Entertainment Group

Co-headliners Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich are bringing ‘Xtreme Muzik The Tour’ to sold-out audiences across the country, but a recent stop at Nashville’s Fontanel truly gave concertgoers a bang for their buck.

Gretchen and Big & Rich decided to donate all proceeds from their September 2 show to Operation FINALLY Home, an organization that honors the widows of fallen soldiers and wounded veterans with new homes. The country stars surprised Air Force veteran Shaun Meadows, a member of the 22nd Special Tactics Squadron who lost both of his legs in battle, onstage with the news of his new home while the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ roared from stage amps below.

“This is a wonderful organization I’ve worked with for years. They have a very simple but very important cause,” Big Kenny reports. “Building a home is noble, but constructing a home tailored to the needs of a specific injury or disability is one of the things Operation FINALLY HOME really understands and has done well time and again.”

The Meadows’ family home will break ground in the Nashville area in November 2011.
