Country On The River, a multi-day music festival taking place in Iowa on June 20 – 21 and Wisconsin on August 7 – 9, has named Operation Troop Aid as the official charity.

The Iowa festival will feature performances by Gary Allan, Bret Michaels, Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Thompson Square, Tracy Lawrence, Lonestar and Joe Diffie. The Wisconsin festival will feature performances by Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Tracy Lawrence, Kix Brooks, Thompson Square, Sawyer Brown, Dustin Lynch, Parmalee and Trick Pony.

“We are very honored to have Operation Troop Aid with us at Country On The River. The support they bring to our troops is invaluable. Country On The River is committed to the Troop Aid cause and we fully support their efforts. We look forward to having Operation Troop Aid in both Iowa and Wisconsin,” says festival organizer Scott Sheckler.

Since its inception, Operation Troop Aid has garnered the support of music celebrities across multiple genres, from KISS to Toby Keith and Cheap Trick to Charlie Daniels. Operation Troop Aid’s mission is to make a positive difference and inspire deployed U.S. service members by letting them know America stands with them. Operation Troop Aid provides care packages and bill assistance with revenue generated through professional concert promotions, entertainment initiatives and public financial generosity.

In addition, Operation Teddy Bear, which started in 2012 as an initiative of Harris Jewelry, continues in support of our military, both at home and abroad through the sale of uniformed teddy bears. Teddy Bears representing all branches of the military can be purchased for $15.00 at www.operationtroopaid.org or www.mybuddybears.com. To date, Operation Teddy Bear has raised over $100,000 to help Operation Troop Aid, a 501(c)3 organization, send care packages to deployed personnel and sponsor events for military families and communities.

Gretchen Wilson Performs at SeaWorld Amid Blackfish Backlash

Gretchen Wilson

Gretchen Wilson took to the stage at SeaWorld this past weekend for their BBQ Festival. However, it wasn’t without controversy stirred-up by the CNN documentary, Blackfish. She took to Twitter to briefly respond before giving up all together.

 

Gretchen was added to the festival after Trace Adkins, Willie Nelson and Martina McBride pulled-out of the festival citing their disagreement with the park’s handling of their prize Killer Whales as the reasoning. Justin Moore and Scotty McCreery are still on the roster to perform on upcoming dates.

Gretchen Wilson raised eyebrows across Sin City last week, when the cover of Las Vegas Magazine showed the Grammy Award-winning superstar in a seemingly topless photograph holding a guitar to cover key body parts. The magazine is distributed in virtually every hotel room in Las Vegas, and the feature promoted her performances at the Golden Nugget last weekend.

Gretchen co-hosted the Christmas edition of GAC’s “Great American Playlist,” and it will begin airing tomorrow, Friday, December 13, at noon Eastern. In the episode, Gretchen chatted with Suzanne Alexander about Christmas traditions, family, her new album, Christmas In My Heart and her favorite holiday music videos.
