The USO is celebrating its 75th Anniversary September 9-11, with heartfelt performances from country music icon John Anderson and Reviver Entertainment Group recording artist Erica Nicole. The artists are teaming up during the 6th Annual Clayton Country Jam, which will also be streamed live via livestream.com and can be viewed HERE. All online proceeds from the event, which will be held at the Thousand Island Winery, will go directly to the USO.
In addition to John Anderson and Erica Nicole’s performances, other artists lending their voice through video messages in support of the USO, on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, will include Big & Rich, Sam Hunt, Lee Brice, Colt Ford and Trailer Choir (watch here).
The three-day comedy and country music festival takes place September 9-11. The dates are in conjunction with the 15th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks and will honor our nation’s first responders and service members. Don’t miss as Anderson performs his biggest hits, along with songs from his critically-acclaimed album Goldmine, which includes the infectious military tribute, “Freedom Isn’t Free.”
A portion of the Clayton Country Jam will be broadcast live on the American Forces Network to an estimated 500,000 troops. The satellite feed is transmitted to 174 territories on U.S. Military installations located on U.S. Embassy and U.S. Consulate compounds overseas and more than 140 U.S. Naval Ships at sea operating outside U.S. territorial waters.
In addition to the broadcast, the Clayton Country Jam will be streamed online through livestream.com and Steve Weed Productions, where 100% of all online donations generated from viewers will go directly to the USO, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening America’s military by connecting them to their family, home and country throughout their service.
