Vince Gill, David Nail, Raelynn & MORE to Play City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game

city of hope game

Some of Nashville’s hottest stars are coming out for the 26th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, presented by Staples, a fan favorite event and longstanding tradition of the CMA Music Festival. Playing to strike out cancer on the Grand Ole Opry and iHeartCountry teams will be Charles Esten, Vince Gill, Chris Lane, Scotty McCreery, Bret Michaels, David Nail, RaeLynn and Jamie Lynn Spears. These stars will step up to the plate on Tuesday June 7th at 3 p.m. from the expansive new field at First Tennessee Park in Nashville, Tennessee, along with more names to be announced in the coming weeks.

Support from the Nashville community and its country music artists directly benefit City of Hope’s mission to find cures for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. A highlight of this year’s game will be when 8-year-old Aaron Yniquez a City of Hope patient from Redlands, California, will finally meet his donor Yolanda Nava, a Southwest Airlines® employee from Arlington, Texas. During his treatment for acute myeloid leukemia, Yniquez received a lifesaving donation of genetically matched stem cells from Nava, and the pair will meet for the first time at the 26th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game in Nashville.

Bone marrow transplants offer a second chance for people with life-threatening blood cancers and other hematologic malignancies. Since 1976, more than 13,000 patients from virtually every state and dozens of countries have undergone bone marrow, cord blood or stem cell transplants at City of Hope.

Each year, the Celebrity Softball Game regularly features some of country music’s biggest and hottest stars, and this year will be honoring music industry veteran Bruce Hinton as the founder of the event and for his significant contributions to the game over its 25-year history. As the game embarks on its next 25 years, it is befitting to honor the man who conceived the event and made it a Nashville tradition. Over the years, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Scotty McCreery, Vince Gill and many more have taken to the field in support of City of Hope’s lifesaving mission.

Tickets for the game can be purchased through Ticketmaster. Those not able to attend the game can still support the cause. A variety of unique merchandise and experiences, including meet-and-greets with the hottest artists, will be available for bid at charitybuzz.com. The proceeds will benefit City of Hope’s mission to eradicate cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Scotty McCreery Releases First Book and Launches 14-City Book Signing Tour

scotty mccreery book

Singer, songwriter, and now, author Scotty McCreery will release his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, and launch his book signing tour on Tuesday, May 3.  During the first two weeks of May, the ACM and CMT Award winner will hold book signings at bookstores and venues in 14 cities. The book signing tour will begin in Ridgewood, New Jersey on release day and end in his hometown of Garner, North Carolina on May 14. See the bottom of this release for dates, locations and times.

McCreery envisions the book as a travelogue and takes the reader on a journey through his life, sharing stories such as his life-altering discovery of Elvis Presley at age five, auditioning for and ultimately winning “American Idol” season 10, and embarking on the country music career he had always dreamed about. He also reveals how he had to grow up quickly when he was thrust into the adult world at age 17, the way he balanced his senior year of high school and college experience with his active recording and touring career, and how he put life into perspective after being robbed at gunpoint. Throughout the book, he writes of how his faith, family and friends have kept him grounded and normal in the midst of a life in the entertainment business.

On May 3, McCreery will perform live on NBC’s “Today” during the 10-11:00 AM hour. The next day, May 4, the country music sensation will be interviewed live on “FOX & Friends” on the FOX News Channel. That same day, New York City-area viewers can also watch him being interviewed on WNYW-TV’s “Good Day New York.”

Before the book signing tour begins, McCreery will be featured on the cover of American Profile this weekend. The national weekly magazine will circulate within community newspapers nationwide between April 29-May 3. In addition, the man recently named “Country Music’s Hottest Bachelor” will be a presenter on FOX’s “American Country Countdown Awards” on Sunday, May 1.

McCreery’s book signings are listed below:
