for Wounded American Military Veterans
Nashville, TN – June 27, 2019 –Multi-hit singer/songwriter Easton Corbin, a long-time advocate and supporter the military men and women as well as organizations that support veterans, and just back from his 2nd annual free private concert tour on Air Force Bases for the Airmen and Air Force civilian employees and their families, has now chosen to partner with Companions for Heroes, an organization that saves, trains and provides companion animals from shelters to active duty military personnel, military veterans, first responders, military spouses and children, and Gold Star Families recovering from the psychological challenges they suffered during service to our country.
Corbin will donate $1 of every ticket sold on all of his concerts to go to Companions for Heroes. He will also provide tickets and take the opportunity for special meet & greets in various markets to meet with these veterans and military personnel.
“We’re thrilled and grateful that Easton is shining a light on Companions for Heroes and our work to save shelter dogs and train them to be companions for our wounded American military veterans, law enforcement officers and Gold Star Families,” said David Sharpe, Founder of Companion for Heroes. “I believe our mission to save wounded veterans and rescue dogs is one Easton’s devoted fans will really get behind, and I can’t wait to see how many more times we can say yes to our wounded veterans because of this tour.”
“I’m a strong believer in what David [Sharpe] and Companions for Heroes does,” said Easton Corbin. “It is so important to me and a real privilege to be in partnership with a charity that gives back like this and really not only rescues these dogs but it helps and in reality really rescues these service men and women too who need this companion. I’ve seen the difference in both the dogs and the vets as well as their families. It’s so inspiring.”
Corbin, an ardent supporter of military and veteran organizations, has worked tirelessly over the course of his career while on the road and through his partnerships with companies like Ram Nation and Kretschmarâ where Corbin has had the opportunity to work with, perform for and/or meet many active military and veterans through organizations like Operation Homefront and Vets Returning Home as well as his partnership with Air Force Entertainment for his last two years of playing 6-7 free Air Force Base Tours around the Independence Day holiday.
