2011 Crockettsville Charity Concert & Trail Ride Raises Over $80,000

Chad Warrix and David Tolliver, formerly of the country duo Halfway to Hazard along with Concerts 4 A Cause brought a revived demeanor to the small town of Crockettsville, KY this weekend after hosting the 2011 Crockettsville Charity Concert and Trail Ride to benefit children of adoption and foster care at Buckhorn Children and Family Services.

Along with artists Randy Houser, Keith Anderson, Christian Kane, Danielle Peck, Gabe Garcia, Craig Wayne Boyd, Larry Cordle and Lisa Torres they were able to raise over $80,000 — all of which goes straight to the kids.

The buzz of the event combined with the weekend’s pristine weather forecast recruited over 10,000 people to attend the concert on Saturday, August 27 at Abner Farm in Crockettsville, KY — nestled between Buckhorn and Jackson, KY where Chad Warrix grew up.

One of the event’s sponsors, Monster Energy Drinks, added a thrill of nail-biting excitement with a stunt show from all-star FreestyleMX riders and prepared event-goers for the next day’s 42-mile ATV trail ride through the dust and mud, which drew in over 500 celebrities and patrons this year.

“We couldn’t be happier with this year’s outcome,” said Chad Warrix. “The energy from all of the performers and audience was overwhelming and knowing that all of it was made possible by the volunteers from the local community who care so much about giving makes it that much more fulfilling.”

At the start of the trail ride on Sunday, August 28, the 500 participants formed a line and paraded past the Buckhorn Children & Family Services facility where hundreds of children and employees cheered on the riders with smiles and signs of appreciation.

“Being able to put a face on the cause reminds us why we’re all out here doing this,” said Warrix. “The smiles on those kids’ faces keep us all coming back year after year, and for as long as we have friends and fellow artists willing to participate, we’ll continue to do so for years to come.”

Performers and schedule for the 2012 Crockettsville Charity Concert & Trail Ride are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.  For more information on the event, visit www.crockettsville.com.

Christian Kane’s “Let Me Go” Blazes to No. 1 on CMT.com

Christian Kane raised the temperatures on the already-hot summer with the release of the video for his sophomore single “Let Me Go.” The steamy, angst-ridden song coupled with Kane’s first-rate acting skills brings the song to life, and fans are eating it up. The Roman White-directed love story debuted on Friday, August 5 at No. 2 and quickly rose to No. 1 on CMT.com and remained there throughout the weekend, beating out country video heavy hitters and their co-stars, including Brad Paisley (featuring Carrie Underwood); Jason Aldean; Kenny Chesney (featuring Grace Potter); and Miranda Lambert. “Have You Seen Christian Kane’s New Video? Fans can’t get enough of his sexy new video, ‘Let Me Go,'” advocates CMT’s feature block.

The country power ballad from Kane’s rowdy, debut album, “The House Rules,” tells a vivid and relatable story of the challenges and surprises that come with being in love. “I believe this ballad speaks to everyone,” says Kane. “Women are always smarter than us, but we never listen…they seem to always know what’s better for us than we do.”

Shot on location in the desert of East Lancaster, California, the video was directed by the legendary Roman White, whose credits include videos for Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire, Justin Bieber and Martina McBride, as well as the 2011 CMT Music Award for “Video of the Year” for Taylor Swift’s hit “Mine.” Passionate about storytelling, White has been nominated for 11 Emmy awards and has taken home three. White and Kane previously worked together on the 2007 Carrie Underwood video for “So Small.”

“[Let Me Go”] is one of my favorite powerful songs on the album,” says Kane. “I never sing about stuff I don’t know about. It’s just not me.” While Kane’s acting credentials are second to none, it is clear that his performance in the video goes beyond acting. “This one hits way close to home,” confirms Kane.

“Let Me Go” is holding strong on the fan-voted site, CMT.com, and Kane says he is grateful for the support of loyal Kaniacs and the dramatically increasing legion of fans who have voted for the video.
