I won’t lie — I am a die-hard country music fan. True, sometimes it’s hard for the vegan in me to justify Tim Mcgraw’s “barbecue stain on his white t-shirt”, but I just assume he and his buddies were simply enjoying a little Sunday afternoon barbecue tempeh. No?
Meat grilling aside, it’s always exciting for me to see some of my favorite country music bumpkins twanging away for the sake of charity. It’s recently been confirmed that Faith Hill and Collin Raye will be among the many celebrity performers at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night XIV, April 4th & 5th, at the J.W. Marriott Desert Resort in Phoenix, AZ.
Celebrity Fight Night is a highly regarded, nationally recognized charity event where celebrities and athletes come together to participate in live musical performances by some of today’s hottest stars. The money raised at the event will benefit the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at Barrow Neurological Institute, as well as many other noble charities.
Other performers include John Mellencamp, Dionne Wrwick, Jordin Sparks, Fantasia, and Sinbad. (I frigin love Sinbad. Where did he go?) The event will also honor Kevin Costner, Clive Davis, Reba McEntire,and LaDainian Tomlinson.
Got about two grand to spare? Well then get your non-leather boots, hemp cowboy hat, and electric pick up truck and four wheel it on down to Celebrity Fight Night and tell us how it was!
