CROMWELL Active Rocker WBUZ (102.9 THE BUZZ)/NASHVILLE has repackaged its ANNUAL FREE BEER & HOT WINGS HOOTENANNY concert in order to benefit THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE to benefit the victims of the NASHVILLE flood. Featuring performances by THREE DAYS GRACE, APOCALYPTICA and HALESTORM; the benefit event has added NASHVILLE residents and multi-platinum artists THREE DOORS DOWN along with their spin off buddies 7 DAY BINGE.
The now relabeled “FREE BEER AND HOT WINGS HOOTENANNY FOR FLOOD RELIEF” is also looking to add more of NASHVILLE's music luminaries to make special appearances throughout the evening.
THREE DOORS DOWN singer BRAD ARNOLD commented, "This is our home and like many others in NASHVILLE, everyone in THREE DOORS DOWN has either been directly affected or knows someone who has been affected by the disaster. I'm not sure anyone outside of NASHVILLE really understands what we're going through here so of course we want put a spotlight on it and help any way we can."
THE BUZZ OM TROY HANSON adds “"It is both an honor and a privilege to be able to give service to our community in this time of need. It is our hope that we can offer a night away from the painful realities this flood has put in front of us, and raise some money for our neighbors who have lost much of what they have spent their lives building."
