ARTICLE: Charlie Daniels "Nashville Get Your Boots On"

The Palm Restaurant in Nashville was the place to be on Monday September 13th as shoulders were rubbing in a jam-packed private event hosted by Charlie & Hazel Daniels.

A very unique evening with the proceeds from the signature “Surf & Turf” dinner, silent auction and one of a kind live auction items going towards the support of active duty service members and veterans through the selected charities, Stars for Stripes and The Boot Campaign for Lone Survivor Foundation.

Honorary Guest, Marcus Luttrell, Navy SEAL and American Patriot, Author of Bestseller Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing & The Lost Heroes of SEAL Team TEN, Founder of the Love Survivor Foundation, not only was the keynote speaker, but also was honored with his very own caricature painting on the famed wall at The Palm, which was revealed during the dinner.

Drake Dixon, the adorable 5 yr old who made his debut in the Randy Hauser video for “Boots On”, shared the spotlight by donning his own military boots and presented Luttrell with a very special medal for his dog “Rigby” who has been instrumental in Luttrell’s therapy and rehabilitation.

The Boot Campaign is a grassroots initiative started by five women from Texas known as the Boot Girls. In partnership with the USO, the Boot Campaign is a new way Americans can show their support for our active duty service members and veterans. This grassroots campaign has captured the attention of American celebrities and civilians — from professional athletes, politicians, country music stars and more — and is quickly gaining momentum. Money raised will support troops and veterans through the work of the USO and the Lone Survivor Foundation. The Boot Campaign provides Americans with a tangible way to give back to our troops by buying a pair of combat boots and proudly wearing or displaying them!

Stars For Stripes is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality entertainment to internationally deployed U.S. Military forces. Bringing together professionals from aviation, entertainment and the military, Stars For Stripes is improving the overseas tour experience for performers, sponsors, donors, and most importantly, for the dedicated men and women protecting our national interests.
