The Surprice of Trace Adkins


Country music star Trace Adkins surprises guests at Nashville-area Country Inns & Suites by CARLSON hotel

During his Hometown Tour Stop in Nashville, Adkins Greeted Guests Behind the Front Desk, Gave an Impromptu Holiday Performance and Joined the Carlson Family Foundation in Presenting a Donation to Wounded Warrior Project

NASHVILLE (December 11, 2014) - Today Grammy award-winning country music legend, Trace Adkins made an unexpected visit to a Country Inns & Suites By Carlson hotel in Cool Springs, Tenn. near Nashville for a surprise appearance and holiday performance for guests, hotel staff and veterans.
While in town for The Christmas Show 2014 tour stop in Nashville, Country Inns & Suites "hired" Adkins to help hotel staff during the busy holiday season, where he worked behind the front desk and gave a special holiday performance in the lobby.
Following Adkins' holiday performance to hotel guests, he joined the Carlson Family Foundation, in presenting a $50,000 donation to Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) to help fund the organization's Economic Empowerment pillar that helps families of veterans achieve long-term financial stability through training, education and employment services.
"It feels great to be back home in Nashville today working with Country Inns & Suites staff, guests and Wounded Warrior Project," said Trace Adkins. "Being able to perform a short holiday show and help the Carlson Family Foundation present a donation to Wounded Warrior Project makes my time here even more special!"
"Wounded Warrior Project and programs within its Economic Empowerment pillar perfectly align with the foundation's dedication to training and workforce development," said David Nelson, executive director of Carlson Family Foundation. "The Carlson Family Foundation supports organizations like Wound Warrior Project who are committed to giving individuals the tools and training they need to be successful in today's workforce."
"This generous donation from the Carlson Family Foundation will help make a significant impact on the lives of the many veterans and their families," said Teresa Nichols, Manager of Major Gifts at Wounded Warrior Project, who accepted the donation today on behalf of the organization. "Last fiscal year we placed more than 1,900 injured service members in meaningful careers through our Warriors to Work program and this donation should help us meet our goal of placing 2,500 more warriors this year."
Additionally, as part of Country Inns & Suites' commitment to making guests feel at home and serving them with a kind and caring spirit, the Carlson Family Foundation is sponsoring Trace Adkins' on-stage Christmas tree giveaway throughout his current The Christmas Show 2014 tour. At each of his 26 tour performances, Adkins will donate the large Christmas tree from his stage set to a local charity.

KRISTIAN BUSH AND GOODWILL INDUSTRIES OF HOUSTON CONNECTED DONORS AND GOODWILL® PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS WITH CONCERT AND DONATION EVENT


‘Give It Away’ Message from Multi-Platinum Recording Artist’s Top 30-and-Climbing Single “Trailer Hitch” Comes to Life Through Partnership with Goodwill and Encourages Donations

NASHVILLE, TN (Dec. 12, 2014) – Multi-platinum Streamsound recording artist Kristian Bush and Goodwill Industries of Houston connected donors and Goodwill job connection program participants with a benefit concert and donation event held in Houston, TX last night (12/11). Through a national partnership between Bush and Goodwill Industries International, fans were encouraged to provide an item or financial donation for free entry into Bush’s live concert, meet some of Goodwill’s job connection center program participants in person, and see how their donations directly impact lives and help create jobs.

The event brought to life the meaning of Bush’s Top 30-and-climbing single “Trailer Hitch,” which reminds us that we collect so many things that we don’t need and we can’t take it with us when we go… so why not “give it away?”

Goodwill Industries of Houston President and CEO Steve Lufburrow attended the event, hosted by KKBQ “The New 93Q,” to talk about the initiative and help kick off the live concert with Bush.

“Thank you to everyone who came out to last night’s event. It was an honor to help Houstonians make the connection between the everyday items they donate to Goodwill and the members of their community who have received jobs or are going through training for future careers because of those donations. Goodwill’s message is ‘Donate Stuff. Create Jobs.’ And last night, we got to see the magic of that message in person,” said Bush.

"We are honored that the Houston community was chosen as the kick-off for Kristian's partnership with our Goodwill agencies across North America," said Steve Lufburrow, president and CEO of Goodwill Houston. "Kristian's concert last evening drew hundreds of Houston area residents who brought used clothing, household goods and monetary donations. The revenue from the sale of these donations empowers community residents to meet their goals and fulfill their futures through job training programs and support services. We are grateful for Kristian's support of Goodwill, and encourage others to donate what they no longer need."

Earlier this week, Bush performed an exclusive concert preview for Houston media in a news conference at Goodwill Houston headquarters. He visited with staff, toured the job connection center and talked about the importance of the partnership and the #GiveItAway campaign.

“Trailer Hitch” is the lead single from his forthcoming debut solo album, SOUTHERN GRAVITY (Streamsound Records), executive produced by Byron Gallimore.

Fans are encouraged to continue donating to Goodwill year round. For more information on the #GiveItAway campaign, click here: http://www.goodwill.org/trailerhitch/.
