    Posted by Kim Brixton

    WIN 98-5's Bobby Guy, Peter Tanz, Dennis Martin 'won' Minnie during Vegas Night at the seminar in Memphis--January 2009.  The Country Cares For Kids Artists signed their autographs all over Minnie so we could give her away during our radiothon.  She almost needed her own plane ticket to come back to Michigan.  Thank goodness for the U.S. Postal Service.


  • Country Beats Cancer

    Artists Lonestar, Houser and Shelton discuss St. Jude in ACM Lifting Lives' 'Country Beats Cancer' theme for September


    Country music artists Randy Houser, Lonestar and Blake Shelton are asking fans to support their favorite charity--St. Jude Children's Research Hospital--as part of the Academy of Country Music's (ACM) "My Cause" Web feature for September.

    Throughout September, "My Cause: Country Beats Cancer" will highlight causes that advance the fight against cancer and give visitors an opportunity to hear artists talk about their favorite charity.

    Launched in August 2010 by ACM Lifting Lives®, the philanthropic arm of ACM, the "My Cause" feature is used to drive awareness of artist-supported charitable organizations and support the fundraising efforts for those philanthropies.

    Visitors of the "My Cause" Web feature on ACMLiftingLives.org can watch videos of a number of country artists discussing their favorite charities and why support is needed. The videos were filmed during the April ACM Awards. During the event, ACM Lifting Lives took the artist gift lounge and transformed it into an area where artists could give back to an organization of their choice. Artists were encouraged to stop by and make direct-to-camera video messages to be used in the for the "My Cause: Country Beats Cancer."

    Visit ACMLiftingLives.org to watch and hear what Houser, Lonestar and Shelton have to say about St. Jude.
