Adkins has served 12 USO tours to date
Trace Adkins and SiriusXM host Eddie Trunk have been tapped to co-host “America Saltues You And Wall Street Rocks Presents: Guitar Legends for Heroes” on Wednesday, November 29th at Terminal 5 in New York City. Special performances include Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) and Orianthi, Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Nancy Wilson (Heart), Sam Moore (Sam and Dave), Lindsey Ell, Robert Randolph and Joe Don Rooney (Rascal Flatts). Portions of ticket proceeds will go to charities including include Headstrong, Psych Armor, The Elizabeth Dole Foundation, Hope For The Warriors and Warrior Canine Connection, and Operation Finally Home. The event aims to create national recognition and thanks to United States military, veterans and their loved ones, and will raise funds for the high impact charities that support them.
After 16 years of war, the number of veterans, including the National Guard and Reservists, with multiple tours of duty is the largest in modern American history. Today, many of those who have served are unemployed, homeless, uninsured and struggling to provide for their families.
Now more than ever, veterans and their families need our help.
Wall Street Rocks is dedicated to harnessing the power of music to raise money for America’s heroes. This year’s event is extra special, and the organizers aim to raise the bar in what they give back to these people who have put their lives on the line to ensure our freedom and security.
The show will be taped for an air date of December 23rd on Fox. Tickets are available at axs.com and start at $85. Door pricing is $200.
Adkins will return to the Today Show on Tuesday, November 28th to speak to Megyn Kelly about the all-star event and his continuing support for U.S. military and veterans, reflected in his current single, “Still A Soldier.”
