AVERAGE JOE’S ENTERTAINMENT artist COLT FORD will honor two police officers who were involved in a tragic shooting in his hometown, with the benefit concert “COLT FORD AND FRIENDS.” The event will be held at the GEORGIA THEATER, on TUESDAY, AUGUST 16th in ATHENS, GA.
The show will honor Police Officer ELMER “BUDDY” CHRISTIAN who passed away in the shooting, and Police Officer TONY HOWARD, who was seriously injured. The lineup includes JASON ALDEAN, RHETT AKINS, DALLAS DAVIDSON, MIKE DEKEL, EDWIN McCAIN, JAMES OTTO, and more. The benefit will also include a silent auction.
FORD said, “I’ve known TONY for over 25 years, and both he and BUDDY are and were pillars in this community, and I can’t stand by and not do something for their families during this difficult time due to such a brutal offense. I want to raise as much money as we can through the auction, performances, and donation links, so I can’t thank my friends enough for joining together with me for this great cause.”
Tickets will go on sale FRIDAY, JULY 22nd at 10a (ET), and can be purchased by clicking here.
