Nashville’s Silver Dollar Saloon (110 Second Avenue North, Nashville) will host a very special celebration on Wednesday, September 11. Though an unlikely paring, some of Nashville’s greatest “Outlaws” will come together in honor of our military heroes and first responders with an evening of great music, specials for active military and veterans and public servants (police, firefighters, etc.), and lots of surprises.
The event will feature a special tribute show to Billy Don Burns. Burns’ 45+year career has yielded cuts with such notables as Willie Nelson, Connie Smith, Mel Tillis, Johnny Paycheck and Sammy Kershaw, just to name a few. With a large cult following, Burns is best-known as one of the few surviving unsung members of Country Music’s original “Outlaw Movement.” Diehard fans (and those discovering the “Outlaws” for the first time through its recent resurgence) rank Billy Don Burns as one of the most overlooked artists of his generation.

Roots rocker Shooter Jennings will be among the notable “friends” that are stopping by to join in the celebration. The event is FREE and open to the public to come shake the hand of a hero and enjoy a spectacular Americana/Country show. What’s more American than that?! Doors open at 6 p.m. For more information on The Silver Dollar Saloon, please visit www.silverdollarsaloon.com.
“September 11 is a watershed date in American (and world) history,” says RKW Global Entertainment Group’s Robert Wolf, organizer of the event. “We wanted to take this day to thank the heroes who continue to answer when our nation calls—no politics, no sorrow…just a big show of appreciation, Nashville-style!”
