Musicians On Call & Wrangler Bring Award-Winning Recording Artists to Honor the Nation’s Veterans with Exclusive Virtual Concert
Musicians On Call (MOC) teamed up with Wrangler for a Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler, which featured renowned recording artists from country to pop and soul music sharing the healing power of music with Veterans across the country for Veterans Day. The exclusive concert featuring Jimmie Allen, Leon Bridges, Terri Clark, Sheryl Crow, Charles Esten, Chris Janson, Scotty McCreery, Brad Paisley, Jon Pardi, Michael Ray, Walker County and Alexis Wilkins was shared at the bedsides of Veterans in 144 VA facilities through MOC’s Virtual Bedside Performance Program. The artists offered songs of encouragement and messages of thanks to all Veterans for their service to our country.
“At Musicians On Call we make sure every day is Veterans Day by bringing hope and healing through music to Veterans year round. Because of the pandemic, we knew many of the men and women in our nation’s VA facilities would be isolated and without the support of their loved ones this Veterans Day. We wanted to share an extra special concert with them to let them know how much we appreciate them, even if we can’t be there in person,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin.
“Wrangler is honored to partner with Musicians On Call this year as a way to extend support and gratitude to our veterans,” said Holly Wheeler, vice president of global brand marketing at Wrangler. “We hold servicemen very close to our hearts, with a long history of supporting and funding fallen troops and their families through our Wrangler National Patriot program. Although we couldn’t hold our annual Wrangler National Patriot Tour this year due to the pandemic, we’re grateful that Musicians On Call has allowed us to give thanks in a different way to those who have sacrificed for our country.”
Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler was also sponsored by Southwest Airlines®, Cumulus Media, Hard Rock International, Grand Ole Opry, Gibson Gives, CMT, CAA, Onsite and Catherine Cate Sullivan.
