Charlie Daniels, Jason Aldean, Lee Greenwood, Chris Young, The Grascals, Keni Thomas, Bleach and Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Sparky Matejka all made appearances during a free concert on Tuesday (March 5) as part of the Charlie Daniels’ Scholarship for Heroes Event at Lipscomb University. The event is part of the university’s Yellow Ribbon Enhancement program.

“The motto for the USO is ‘until they all come home.’ Last night’s event at Lipscomb addressed the fact that many did not come home,” explained Greenwood. “I’m proud to have been a part of this event and congratulate my friend Charlie Daniels for being a leader in our Nashville community.”

Daniels, a staunch supporter of the military, was pleased with the event and the support by the community. Corporate sponsors and donors included iostudio, Humana, Waltrip Brothers’ Charity Championship, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Twice Daily, Bridgestone, Chase, Operation Homefront, Clear Channel, Dollywood, Shofner Vision Center, Trauger & Tuke, Glover Group Entertainment, SunTrust and DSI.

“We have so many heroes whose needs fly below our radar,” said Daniels. “This shouldn’t be happening and this event is helping to make sure it doesn’t.”
