Craig Campbell, Chuck Wicks, and Jana Kramer Join Forces to Raise Money for Charity

buds

The 17th annual Buds ‘N’ Suds benefit for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America was held in Nashville, and included performances from up-and-coming talent as well as established artists, and a silent auction featuring autographed items from legends like Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney.

Hosted by Blair Garner of America’s Morning Show, the show began with acoustic performances by Kaleigh Bullard (Miss Nashville), the Mann Sisters, and Emi Sunshine, a dynamite young girl with a personality as big as her vocals.

Craig Campbell kicked off the full band portion of the show with a cover of the Brooks & Dunn hit “Play Something Country.” His 40-minute set was a high-energy honkytonk experience that included his hits “Family Man” and “Keep Those Kisses Comin,” as well as a surprise cover of “Royals” by Lorde. He is currently working on finalizing the details of a new record deal, and is excited about the direction of his future.

“Upward! I haven’t had a number one yet, so that’s first and foremost for me,” said Campbell, when talking about his goals for working with a new team.

Chuck Wicks continued to keep the crowd on their feet with his hits “All I Ever Wanted” and his brand new single, “Saturday Afternoon.”

“I wrote it with two guys that are on fire, Chris Tompkins and Rodney Clawson. I wrote this song from a fun place, and when I would sing it live, the immediate reaction from it sparked ‘maybe people are going to react to this pretty positively’ and hopefully at the radio level it does the same thing,” said Wicks.

The ladies in the crowd swooned over Wicks as he sang sultry songs like “Hold That Thought,” which was voted as one of the top 20 hottest music videos by CMT. Wicks is currently in the studio wrapping up a new album and hopes to release it in the coming months.

Jana Kramer ended the night with a fun set of her music, including new songs that will be on an upcoming album.

“A lot of the songs on this new album are songs that I’ve written and co-written a lot more than the first album. I’ve definitely stepped up and let my life shine through these songs.”

Her current single, “Love,” represents a multitude of emotions, not just romantic love.

“The song is about love in general, the love that’s out there, not just relationships; for me, that’s in paying it forward and giving back,” said Kramer.

While none of the performers have been directly impacted by Crohn’s disease or colitis, they all agreed that it’s a cause worth supporting, and that their purpose as entertainers is not only to perform, but to give back to the community at any chance they get.

“This is what we were put here to do. We get out and play music and sing for fun, but when it comes down to it, the only reason we have our celebrity status is to do things like this,” said Craig Campbell.

3rd Annual Tug McGraw Foundation Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am Brings Out Big Names

Tug McGraw

The Tug McGraw Foundation held its 3rd Annual “Celebrity Sporting Clay Pro-Am” on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at the Nashville Gun Club in Nashville, Tennessee. Sponsored by Tarver Land Development, the event raised over $153,000 to improve the lives of military service members who have been affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

The Sonic Labor/Finder Team with celebrity Rhett Akins and professional Jerry Conway took first place in the competition, followed by the Tarver Land Team 1 with Tim McGraw and Josh Richmond, the Gamalier Shooting Supply Team with Storme Warren and Charlie Lowery and the Mike Fisher Team with Mike Fisher and Bobby Brooks.

A highlight of the event was attendance by 90-year old WWII veteran Henry Shaw who had just received his combat medals thanks from the help of Stand Down Nashville. Special dignitaries attending included members of the Tennessee National Guard led by Lt Col Jim Reed and veterans Shaun Meadows, Luke Van Dorston, and Allen Hill.

Other country music celebrities and song writers included Faith Hill, Brantley Gilbert, The Warren Brothers, Craig Campbell, Deano Brown, Ira Dean, Keith Anderson, Lance Miller, Kristy Lee Cook, Daryle Singletary, Matt Bailie, and the LoCash Cowboys, plus ESPN analyst John Kruk.

Professional contingent for the event included Maximum Archery’s Andy Ross, Aaron and Steve Gould of the Gould Brothers Exhibition Shooting, and Mark Weeks from the United States Army Exhibition Team.

The 23 teams consisting of four amateurs, one professional, and a music celebrity took turns at multiple target presentations simulating the unpredictability of live-quarry, each offering a variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.
