Billy Bob’s Presents a Virtual Concert for the FFA
The iconic Ft Worth honky-tonk has teamed up with Cavender’s to bring you a free, donation based virtual concert to benefit the Texas FFA Foundation.
The concert is billed as ‘You’re Still Farming & We’re Still Singing’ and will be streamed Sat, April 25 at 7 pm at www.facebook.com/BillyBobsTexas.
The full music performance lineup continues to grow and is being updated on Billy Bob’s Texas Instagram stories – @billybobstexas. All of the performers are proud to call Texas their home and several of them have a personal history and connection with the FFA.
Katherine Kolstad Laramore, Corporate Partnerships at Billy Bob’s Texas said "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”.
“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,” said 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.
Aaron Alejandro, Executive Director of the Texas FFA Foundation said “Texas is blessed with three vital and renewable resources: youth, agriculture, and leadership. “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.”
Look for those updates on the live music lineup and get ready for a great virtual show Saturday, April 25th.
