Montgomery Gentry To Perform Free Concert After Braves-Rangers Game
June 16, 2011 at 12:17 PM (PT)
AVERAGE JOE’s ENTERTAINMENT duo MONTGOMERY GENTRY will perform a free postgame concert at TURNER FIELD in ATLANTA, on SUNDAY, JUNE 19th, for MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL’S FATHER’S DAY celebration. The annual event raises awareness for prostate cancer advocacy, awareness and research.
After the ATLANTA BRAVES take on the TEXAS RANGERS, fans with tickets to the game are invited to stay for live music. Prostate cancer survivors will receive a free game ticket, t-shirt and the opportunity to participate in a ceremony before the game.
Both EDDIE MONTGOMERY and TROY GENTRY are passionate about the cause, especially after MONTGOMERY was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2010.
"I just want to make sure that every guy out there goes and gets checked," said MONTGOMERY. "Do it for your kids, do it for you, just go. The reason I had such a great outcome was because they caught it early. I just urge all the men out there to not put off a check-up."
GENTRY added, "Being a father is truly 'something to be proud of. I love my girls so much and I plan to be around for a long time to see them grow up. Right after EDDIE was diagnosed, I went to the doctor. I was putting it off, but not anymore. Men everywhere need to make sure they stay healthy for their kids."
Tickets for the game can be purchased at www.braves.com/pcawareness.
