Veterans outreach event to include Charlie Daniels: "'It's going to be a day full of military pageantry, and a great show by The Charlie Daniels Band to end the evening,' said Steve Thurman, president of the Nashville concert promotion company Nordell Co., which works for Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe. 'Our goal is to pack that stadium with 4,000 people that day. I hope we pack it and raise a lot of money for the Slate Belt Veterans Association.'
Thurman said he invited Daniels, an award-winning musician with hits such as 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' and 'Long Haired Country Boy,' because he is 'an American icon' and an 'outspoken supporter' of U.S. troops. "
Charlie likes veterans.
