Cavender’s and Billy Bob’s Texas are teaming up to help the Texas FFA Foundation on @billybobstexas‘ Instagram Story!
The concert is called You’re Still Farming & We’re Still Singing, reflecting that farmers do not get days off in the current pandemic.
Since April 14th, Billy Bob’s has been announcing artists that will perform at the concert. Already announced are Casey Donahew, Jack Ingram, Koe Wetzel, Mike Ryan, Neal McCoy, Parker McCollum, Randy Rogers, Tracy Byrd, Wade Bowen, and William Clark Green. More names will be announced daily as the concert approaches.
“This opportunity to continue to involve our yearlong Billy Bob’s Partners in a virtual concert for an organization that is benefitting kids in this western and agricultural industry is wonderful,” said Katherine Kolstad Laramore, Corporate Partnerships at Billy Bob’s Texas. “It is such a creative way for this tight-knit group to all stay connected and supportive as a community during this time apart.”
“The agriculture industry is as important as ever as it continues to fuel and feed America. The FFA is shaping the leaders of tomorrow and we at Cavender’s have pledged to lift them up. We have a 55-year history of supporting the communities where we have stores and this is a unique opportunity to support the future leaders of the great state of Texas,” said Jennifer Green, Public Relations and Special Events at Cavender’s.
“We are very excited to be part of this Event. We love to support Texas country music and the FFA. There really couldn’t be a better combination for Cavender’s,” said Clay Cavender.
“Texas is blessed with three vital and renewable resources: youth, agriculture, and leadership,” said Aaron Alejandro, Executive Director, Texas FFA Foundation. “Our program empowers the dreams of our members today, ensuring they are dynamic influencers in the future. Together we will help our students be resilient today, so they will be stronger leaders tomorrow. Your support is helping make Texas a better place to live, work, and raise our families.”
Though the stories are free to watch, donations to the Texas FFA Foundation will be accepted. Funds donated will be used for scholarships and leadership development opportunities in the Texas FFA.
