Country singer-songwriter Easton Corbin and longtime advocate for the United States Armed Forces has announced his brand new partnership with Companions For Heroes. The organization focuses on saving, training and providing companion animals from shelters to active duty military personnel, military veterans, first responders, military spouses and children, and Gold Star Families recovering from the psychological challenges they suffered during service to our country.
With this project, Corbin will donate $1 of every ticket sold on all of his concerts to go to Companions for Heroes. He will also provide tickets and take the opportunity for special meet & greets in various markets to meet with these veterans and military personnel.
Fresh off the heels of his 2nd annual free private concert tour on Air Forces Bases for the Airmen and Air Force civilian employees and their families, Corbin shared why this partnership means a lot to him.
“I’m a strong believer in what David [Sharpe] and Companions for Heroes does,” said the 37-year-old. “It is so important to me and a real privilege to be in partnership with a charity that gives back like this and really not only rescues these dogs but it helps and in reality really rescues these service men and women too who need this companion. I’ve seen the difference in both the dogs and the vets as well as their families. It’s so inspiring.”
Echoing the same eagerness about the collaboration, Davis Sharpe, Founder of Companions for Heroes shared, “We’re thrilled and grateful that Easton is shining a light on Companions for Heroes and our work to save shelter dogs and train them to be companions for our wounded American military veterans, law enforcement officers and Gold Star Families. I believe our mission to save wounded veterans and rescue dogs is one Easton’s devoted fans will really get behind, and I can’t wait to see how many more times we can say yes to our wounded veterans because of this tour.”
Across his entire career, the country singer has worked tirelessly to support both current servicemen and women and veterans, with past collaborations with Ram Nation and Kretschmar where Corbin has had the opportunity to work, perform for and/or meet many active military and veterans through organisations like Operation Homefront and Vets Returning Home, including his partnership with Air Force Entertainment for his last two years of playing 6-7 free Air Force Base Tours around the Independence Day holiday.
