Craig Morgan To Host Benefit For Billy’s Place

Craig Morgan To Host 6th Annual Charity Weekend Benefiting Billy’s Place.

Craig Morgan recently announced that he is set to host his 6th annual Charity Weekend August 11 and 12 in his hometown of Dickson, Tenn. Proceeds from the two-day event, which includes a Celebrity Motocross Ride, Concert and Sporting Clay Shoot, will benefit Billy’s Place, an organization benefiting foster children in Dickson County and throughout middle Tennessee.

The family-friendly event will kick-off Saturday, August 11 in Dickson, Tenn. The morning will start with a motocross exhibition followed by a group trail ride and lunch. Previous celebrity motocross participants have included Kevin Windham, Cowboy Kenny Bartram, Fred Andrews and Barry Hawk.

Later that night, Craig and several of his country music friends will take the stage for an intimate acoustic concert at Dickson Middle School. A live and silent auction will also take place where attendees can bid on everything from autographed memorabilia to the chance to give the singer a high-and-tight haircut on stage during the event.

Last year’s new addition, the hugely popular Sporting Clay Shoot, will return again the morning of August 12 from Nashville Gun Club. Teams of shooters will face off and display their finest shooting skills as they attempt to dethrone Morgan, who was celebrity co-captain of this year’s winning team at the NRA Country/ACM Sporting Clay Shoot.

All three events are open to the public. Individual event and bundled tickets will go on sale in June. Celebrity participants for all three events will be announced at a later date!
