JERROD NIEMANN SALUTES TO OUR ARMED FORCES IN FISHER HOUSE SPECIAL

THE COUNTRY HITMAKER HOSTS TWO-HOUR RADIO SHOW, THE GIFT

GEARS UP FOR UPCOMING CMA FEST PERFORMANCES


Just in time for Memorial Day, JERROD NIEMANN is saluting our troops by hosting the eighth annual Fisher House radio special, THE GIFT, which is set to air across the nation on a multitude of stations throughout the holiday weekend.

Over the course of two hours, Niemann helps familiarize listeners with the Fisher House Foundation – an organization that has managed to help hundreds of thousands of military and veterans’ families by providing homes around the world where they can stay, free-of-charge, while their loved ones are in the hospital.

The special, which features hits by several Country superstars including Luke Bryan, Niemann, Keith Urban and more, also gives listeners a peek into just how much relief the foundation is able to provide, through conversation with its President and CEO, Ken Fisher, as well as an emotional testimony from a veteran and his wife, who experienced Fisher House’s blessings first-hand.

In addition to hearing the details of the incredible organization, listeners will also learn the story behind Niemann’s latest patriotic ballad, “Old Glory,” which was inspired by his multiple USO tours and the sacrifices our service members and their families make every single day.

Fans are encouraged to check their local listings to find out when and where they can tune into THE GIFT.

Niemann is currently out on his TALLBOYS AND SHORT STORIES TOUR and is also set to perform on Budweiser's Forever Country Stage during CMA Fest in Nashville, TN, on June 8.

During the initial planning of the benefit, Berry expressed his wishes to share the financial blessings and gift a portion of the donation money raised from the star studded country music concert and fundraising efforts. The funds raised will offset the medical expenses for treatments not covered by insurance for John Berry and benefit the endeavors of Music Health Alliance to assist others in the Nashville music community.

"As I said before. Thank you is not big enough, incredible is not incredible enough and amazing is not amazing enough. I am honored, humbled and grateful for the love shown to me and Robin. It is my hope that in the future as I continue to heal and get back to playing music, that I can pass on that huge amount of love I received to others. Whether it be for folks in the music community, family, friends or fans, I want to give back what has been shown to me,” shares John Berry. “I am so happy that Music Health Alliance is a recipient of all the love shown from the special night. MHA has been there for my family for several years, providing answers and assistance for all our health insurance needs."

“For most of our  lives John Berry’s music has touched our hearts,” stated CEO/Founder; Tatum Allsep.  “Now the generosity of John and Robin Berry will enable Music Health Alliance to heal the hearts of music makers as well. We are profoundly grateful.”
