Breelan Angel Teams with Boot Campaign to Support Troops

Breelan Angel

America, get YOUR boots on! Texas Country singer/songwriter Breelan Angel is pleased to announce she has joined Boot Campaign’s #BootsOn initiative to support the 1.38 million men and women serving in our military today and the 22 million veterans who have served in the past by debuting as a celebrity ambassador. A national non-profit that promotes patriotism, raises awareness of military issues, and provides vital assistance for our nation’s heroes and their families, Boot Campaign raises funds through the retail sale of combat boots and other merchandise to support the unique needs of troops during and post service. A photo of Angel, supporting our troops in signature combat boots, is scheduled to debut on the Boot Campaign social media platforms on Saturday, July 23, 2016.

“I truly believe in and support the men and women who sacrifice their lives for our freedom in this country,” said Angel. “They have given everything to protect us and our families and that is just one of the reasons I have chosen to stand with the Boot Campaign. This campaign brings awareness to those individuals and all that they have sacrificed and I think it is very important we as American citizens remember what it is our troops do and have done in the years before us. I am proud to be a supporter of this campaign and am honored they let me be a part of such an important message!”

Currently promoting her EP, DIAMOND IN A RHINESTONE WORLD, Angel has been a fixture on the country music scene since 2012. Having achieved two Top 20 singles on Texas Regional Radio Report (“Pocket Change” and “She Made Your Bed”), she is currently celebrating her first Top 15 as the title track reached #14, her highest chart position to date.

Upcoming tour dates include shows with Texas Country favorites JB& The Moonshine band and Jason Boland & The Stragglers as well as an appearance in France at the Equiblues Western Festival.

Toby Keith’s “A Few More Cowboys” Hot Shot Debut

Toby Keith

Singer, songwriter and entertainer Toby Keith is back with new music, and he’s bringing along some friends … a few more cowboys, to be precise. The Show Dog Nashville recording artist’s latest single, “A Few More Cowboys,” just landed at all digital retailers, including iTunes (http://umgn.us/MoreCowboys) and radio.  After the single was leaked to radio early, “A Few More Cowboys” landed as a hot shot debut on the Billboard Country Charts!

Co-written by Toby Keith, Bobby Pinson and Dean Dillon, the song calls for simplicity in these difficult times:

With a few more cowboys, there’d be a lot less outlaws
With a few more amens, be a lot less bad calls
And a few more yes ma’ams, be a lot less yes men
This world would be a better place to live in
With a few more cowboys

Pinson has written eight chart-toppers and has had songs cut by a diverse array of country hitmakers including Sugarland, Blake Shelton, Marty Stuart and, of course, Keith. A member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Dillon is one of the most accomplished songwriters of all time. His compositions include George Strait’s “The Chair” and George Jones’ “Tennessee Whiskey,” as well as 10 co-writes with Keith.

The new music comes as the Toby Keith Interstates & Tailgates Tour Presented by Ford F-Series continues its May to October run. On a recent stop in Brainerd, MN, Keith’s Friday night headlining show at the Lakes Jam Festival had a record high attendance number for the event. The Brainerd Dispatch, who reported an abundance of fans that noted Toby was their favorite, said, “fans filled the bowl area from front to back.”

His 13th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic recently raised $1.175 million for the cost-free home-away-from-home OK Kids Korral, which aids sick children and their families.
