Benefit for T.J. Martell Foundation Scheduled for October 5-8, 2013 at the Reach Resort
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (March 5, 2013) – For the fifth year in a row, country music will come together on the scenic beaches of Key West, Fla. to benefit the music industry’s largest foundation that funds leukemia, cancer and AIDS research: the T.J. Martell Foundation. Long-time friends and songwriting buddies Lee Brice, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann will triple headline the final night of Country On The Beach, as super duo Montgomery Gentry hosts and GAC’s Headline Country’s Storme Warren emcees. Country music fans are invited to attend and get an up-close-and-personal experience with their favorite country stars as they let loose in one of Florida’s most popular vacation spots.
“We call the growing gang of fans who attend our annual tropical reunions ‘the world’s largest dysfunctional family,’” Warren states lightheartedly. “Now that we’re adding Lee, Randy and Jerrod in to the mix, that family just got a whole lot more dysfunctional. The hits will be flying from the stage. I can’t wait!”
Tickets are available by visiting www.countryonthebeach.com and proceeds from the weekend’s auctions and special excursions will benefit the foundation. Meet-and-greets with the artists will be available, and fans can expect a laid-back environment where a few ‘surprise’ off-the-cuff acoustic performances are never out of the ordinary.
To-date, the T.J. Martell Foundation has raised more than $250 million for research with the help of hundreds of volunteers and music industry professionals, which has been successfully leveraged into several billion dollars in order to support innovative medical research focused on finding cures and supporting early-stage research projects aimed at developing effective treatment.
