Country Stars Support The Boot Campaign
Country music stars everywhere are slipping off their cowboy boots and trading them in for army boots as a way to give back and say thank you to our armed forces.
The Boot Campaign was inspired by retired US Navy SEAL and author of the book Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell.
Country music stars involved in the campaign include: legends like George Jones, Oak Ridge Boys, Jan Howard, Mel Tillis, Lee Greenwood and Charlie Daniels, along with hit-makers such as Josh Turner, Phil Vassar, Joe Nichols, Randy Houser, Joey & Rory, Jack Ingram and many more.
Choosing the Boot Campaign to be a part of his annual charity event at the Nashville Palm, Charlie Daniels declared, "I've never seen anything quite as unique as the Boot Campaign, and I've seen a lot!"
These celebrities along with the Boot Girls are doing what they can to spread the organization's motto: "When They Come Back, We Give Back!" The campaign encourages Americans to purchase a pair of army combot boots to wear in support of our nation's troop. To show your appreciation for the military, the Boot Girls are asking Americans to wear boots during the routine of daily life to "symbolically walk in the shoes of our military men and women, remembering their service and sacrifice."
You can purchase the campaign's signature boots online with proceeds benefiting organizations like The Lone Survivor Foundation.
