Special Surprise Performers at SOLD OUT Concert Included Colbie Caillat, Collective Soul, Darryl Worley, Elvie Shane, Michael Ray and Tyler Farr
To Date, Montana’s ‘American Thread’ Events Have
Raised Over 1.1 Million Dollars
Music Knox Records/BBR Music Group recording artist Tim Montana‘s inaugural American Thread benefit concert, held October 2 at Nashville‘s City Winery, can be stamped as ‘Mission Accomplished.’ The SOLD OUT special concert event (and the following day’s clays shoot), benefiting Special Ops Xcursions, a nonprofit that supports U.S. special operations forces and their families, raised over $334,000 for men and women in uniform. Special surprise guest performers were Colbie Caillat, Collective Soul, Darryl Worley, Elvie Shane, Michael Ray and Tyler Farr.
The event also featured guest speaker Sgt. Omar “Crispy” Avila, a war hero and U.S. Army vet. Action sports legend Travis Pastrana and his sidekick, Street Bike Tommy (both of Nitro Circus fame), were also in attendance.
For the past three years, Montana has headed up the American Thread Sporting Clays Shoot in Nashville, drawing celebs who lent their time to help our nation’s military heroes. This year, Montana continued that tradition with the fourth annual Tim Montana & Friends American Thread Sporting Clays Shoot, held the day following the concert at the Nashville Gun Club. After this week’s events – four years since the clays shoot’s inception – Montana has officially raised over 1.1 million dollars for Special Ops Xcursions.
“This year’s event was our biggest yet,” says Montana. “From the artists that volunteered their time and talents, to the sponsors that made this possible, I’m so incredibly proud of what we’re doing for the veteran and active duty military community. Thank you Trevor Pardue, Scott Graves and all of our board members for your tireless work. Breaking a million dollars in just four years is no easy feat and we’re just getting started.”
Montana plans to continue his American Thread events for years to come.
