JASON ALDEAN'S "CONCERT FOR THE CURE"
RETURNS TO NASHVILLE AS PART OF
THE OPRY'S EIGHTH ANNUAL "OPRY GOES
PINK" IN SUPPORT OF THE FIGHT
AGAINST BREAST CANCER ON OCT. 25
Aldean to “Flip The Switch” on Signature Barn, Benefiting Women Rock for the Cure and Susan G. Komen
NASHVILLE, TN - Aug. 24, 2016 – Since beginning his career, RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time Jason Aldean has continued to find new ways to raise awareness for breast cancer research, and for the first time in his career he partners with the Grand Ole Opry and incorporates his 11th annual “Concert for the Cure” as part of the eighth annual “Opry Goes Pink,” the annual special performance staged to fight breast cancer. In addition to the multi-platinum superstar flipping the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the Grand Ole Opry’s two shows on Tuesday, October 25, Aldean will take the stage to perform along with other favorites and raise awareness and funds for Women Rock for the Cure™ and Susan G. Komen®'s Nashville Chapter. A host of artists joining Aldean for the Opry shows will be announced soon.
“Finding a cure for breast cancer is something I'll continue to fight for the rest of my life," said Aldean. "Bringing the show back to Nashville this year as part of a special Opry performance where I will have so many friends and family in the crowd will be a good reminder of why we need to continue to fight this terrible disease.”
This year’s ACM Entertainer of the Year has been an avid supporter towards the fight against breast cancer since 2004, after losing a dear friend to the disease. Aldean continues to donate a portion of each ticket sale towards his longstanding partner, Susan G. Komen, while also honoring one breast cancer survivor and guest during his 2016 SIX STRING CIRCUS, with a VIP backstage meet-and-greet experience.
“Both Jason Aldean and the Opry have been working for several years now to fight breast cancer,” said Pete Fisher, Opry vice president and general manager. “We’re excited that the ACM’s Entertainer of the Year and the Opry are joining forces this year to make what we know will be a bigger impact than ever.”
Aldean will take the stage that night to present a check to the Susan G. Komen Foundation from monies raised on his tour throughout the year. Additionally, beginning today, when fans order tickets to the night’s shows, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure™. Tickets are available at (615) 871-OPRY and opry.com.
The Grand Ole Opry® is presented by Humana®. Opry performances are held every weekend of the year, and the Tuesday Night Opry continues through Dec. 13.

Charlie Daniels and Middle Tennessee State University’s lengthy association continue to make amazing strides

MTSU unveils plaque, logo recognizing Daniels-led vet center giftsMURFREESBORO, Tenn. (August 24, 2016) – Music legend Charlie Daniels and Middle Tennessee State University’s lengthy association continue to make amazing strides.
THEC awards $185K-plus grant for student success efforts
THEC awards $185K-plus grant for student success efforts
With the unveiling of a plaque and a new logo for MTSU’s Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center named for them, MTSU formally recognized the couple and The Journey Home Project he co-founded to assist veterans during a Tuesday (Aug. 23) celebration at the Miller Education Center on Bell Street.
Daniels and his wife, who have been married 52 years, were humbled and moved by MTSU’s recognition, which included a presentation of MTSU football jerseys from athletics director Chris Massaro and senior defensive end Steven Rhodes, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.
“It’s an extreme honor having my wife and myself named for the veterans center,” Daniels said. “I accept the honor on behalf of The Journey Home Project. We are just the tip of the iceberg. Thank you. I will carry this with me for the rest of my life.”
Daniels said the center “is where veterans can obtain so much support — health care, teleconferencing facilities, job placement, academics, government bureaucracy and a therapeutic place to sit and talk with others. Any problems they have they can get help at the center.”
In a related development, Mike Krause, the new Tennessee Higher Education Commission executive director and a U.S. Army veteran, announced to campus officials the awarding of a nearly $185,500 grant after THEC accepted the center’s proposal focusing on increasing veterans’ student success.
“MTSU has led the way in Tennessee regarding serving student veterans,” Krause said. “We are excited to continue working with Dr. (Sidney) McPhee and Gen. (Keith) Huber to ensure that after serving their country, veterans are able to earn a world-class degree and enter the workforce ready to succeed.”
Dr. Hilary Miller, the center director, said the grant will fund a full-time transition manager (assist with enrollment, prior learning assessment, supplemental academic counseling and coordination with the veterans' employing agent); a graduate assistant for communications; student travel to conferences and travel for transition manager/employing agent.
Hazel Daniels said the university’s acknowledgement of The Journey Home Project’s gifts “are such an honor — and it’s so close to home (from theirs in Mt. Juliet). We love the military. It’s a blessing having our names on the center.”
Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives, master of ceremonies for the event and retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, said Daniels and The Journey Home Project “provide genuine support, emotionally and financially, to establish an environment which provides the comprehensive answers to challenges facing transitioning veterans.”
“His support to the Veterans and Military Family Center establishes a space of trust and accountability similar to a military unit,” Huber added. “Nothing can replace or replicate the bonds forged in combat, but student veterans will reach out to fellow veterans who share the commonality of selfless service and sacrifice. We all as veterans dream of finally coming home and continuing to serve as leaders in our community. This is the journey as we enter this next phase of our lives.”
Invited by Huber because they serve on the Nashville Serving Veterans Community Board together, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry said “the work of the Veterans and Military Family Center changes many lives for the better, opening new opportunities up to veterans so they have every chance to reach their potential and continue serving their communities and their country in new ways.”
“Thank you to Charlie and Hazel Daniels for everything they’ve given to honor the sacrifices of America’s veterans,” added Barry. “The renaming of the center is a fitting tribute to Charlie, Hazel and their many contributions.”
McPhee said the Danielses “have given substantially to our center not once but twice and expected nothing in return.” When he informed them of his decision to name the center in their honor, “they were surprised and appeared stunned. They simply didn’t expect it. They were and are always humble, always gracious and always focusing on the needs of others, particularly our veterans.”
The president said he hopes the “tangible recognition of the two great citizens that will be displayed in the center will, hopefully, inspire others to follow their example.”
Journey Home Project board members David Corlew and Joe and Mercedez Longever joined Daniels at the event. Ed Hardy is the fifth board member.
The Daniels-MTSU relationship stretches 40 years and five decades.
Daniels’ second Volunteer Jam was held in MTSU’s Murphy Center. The university presented him with the Joe M. Rodgers Spirit of America Award in 2009. The Danielses and The Journey Home Project gave separate $50,000 (for computers and technology) and $70,000 gifts to the Veterans and Military Family Center in 2015 and ’16. MTSU renamed the facility the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center in April.
Daniels and U.S. Veterans Affairs deputy secretary Sloan Gibson joined other special guests as the center celebrated a Nov. 5 grand opening in Keathley University Center.
The 2,600-square-foot, $329,000 center is a one-stop-shop for MTSU’s approximately 1,000 student veterans and family members.
It is a place for student-veterans to study, to gather and to get help from fellow veterans, who will serve as peer advisers and sponsors.
Tutoring assistance, VetSuccess on Campus and more are part of the center’s offerings. The center staff features five full-time staff, including a mental health counselor and more than 12 part-time student-veterans. To learn more, visit mtsu.edu/military or call 615-904-8347.
