BILLY BOB’S TEXAS & CAVENDER’S COLLABORATE FOR THE GOOD OF THE LONE STAR STATE
Free, Donation-Based Virtual Concert Benefits Texas FFA Foundation
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (April 14, 2020) – Two TEXAS icons come together with some incredible TEXAS musicians to support the future of TEXAS agriculture.
You’re Still Farming & We’re Still Singing
A Virtual Concert presented by Billy Bob’s Texas & Cavender’s
Benefitting the Texas FFA Foundation
Saturday, April 25 | 7 PM CST
Streaming at www.facebook.com/BillyBobsTexas.
The full lineup will be announced throughout the week, beginning today, Tuesday, April 14 at 10 AM on Billy Bob’s Texas Instagram stories – @billybobstexas. All of the performers are proud to call the great state of Texas their home and several of them have a personal history and connection with the FFA.
The virtual benefit concert will be the second for Billy Bob’s Texas. The club celebrated 39 years on April 1, but instead of a concert at the 100,000 square foot honky tonk, the concert was streamed online in order to uphold the Tarrant County stay-at-home declaration intended to limit the spread of COVD-19.
“This opportunity to continue to involve our yearlong Billy Bob’s Partners in a virtual concert for an organization that is benefitting kids in this western and agricultural industry is wonderful. It is such a creative way for this tight-knit group to all stay connected and supportive as a community during this time apart”, said Katherine Kolstad Laramore, Corporate Partnerships at Billy Bob’s Texas.
“The agriculture industry is as important as ever as it continues to fuel and feed America. The FFA is shaping the leaders of tomorrow and we at Cavender’s have pledged to lift them up. We have a 55-year history of supporting the communities where we have stores and this is a unique opportunity to support the future leaders of the great state of Texas,” says Jennifer Green, Public Relations and Special Events at Cavender’s. “We are very excited to be part of this Event. We love to support Texas country music and the FFA. There really couldn’t be a better combination for Cavender’s,” said Clay Cavender.
The concert is free to enjoy, but donations will be accepted to help provide scholarships and leadership development opportunities for students and agricultural science teachers.
“Texas is blessed with three vital and renewable resources: youth, agriculture, and leadership,” said Aaron Alejandro, Executive Director, Texas FFA Foundation. “Our program empowers the dreams of our members today, ensuring they are dynamic influencers in the future. Together we will help our students be resilient today, so they will be stronger leaders tomorrow. Your support is helping make Texas a better place to live, work, and raise our families.”
