Members of the military and their families in Oak Grove, Ky. were treated to a special, complimentary, live performance by award-winning Country music duo Montgomery Gentry last night, thanks to the Super 8® hotel chain and Premiere Networks.
Held at Valor Hall near the Fort Campbell U.S. Army Base, the event was hosted by CMT After MidNite personality Cody Alan and marked the first stop of the newly launched “Super 8 Military Appreciation Tour.” Through the efforts of Super 8 and Premiere Networks, the tour provides members of the military and their families with unique access to private, complimentary concerts by top name Country music stars.
“As one of the world’s largest and most recognizable hospitality brands, Super 8 is proud to support the members of our armed forces,” said Mike Mueller, brand senior vice president for Super 8. “These individuals and their families make sacrifices for all of us each and every day, and in knowing that, it’s important that we take time to not only recognize and honor their service but to also say thank you. In pulling together this event—the first of what we hope will be many—Montgomery Gentry, Cody Alan and our friends at Premiere Networks really stepped up, and I’m sincerely grateful to them for helping us give such a phenomenal experience to such a deserving group of individuals.”
Eddie Montgomery, Kentucky native and one-half of the hit duo Montgomery Gentry said, “We get to dream as big as we want to, be anything we want to be and enjoy the freedoms we all enjoy because of our military and we never, ever forget that. T and I support these men and women every chance we get and it was an honor to be with so many of them last night in Ft. Campbell.”
The Super 8 Military Appreciation Tour marks the continuation of an ongoing partnership between Premiere Networks and Super 8, which is a long-time sponsor of the network’s national Country music radio programs and events. A second tour stop with another Country artist is expected to be announced later this fall.
