Charlie Daniels Plans Christmas for Kids

Great American Country: "July 20, 2007 — Charlie Daniels and friends Rodney Atkins and Taylor Swift will perform at the 11th Annual Christmas for Kids Benefit Concert Monday, November 19, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

The event raises money for the Christmas for Kids organization, which gives special children in the community the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season.

Christmas for Kids has been bringing the spirit of Christmas to hundreds of children throughout Middle Tennessee for more than 20 years. In addition to the concert, the Tour Bus Tour, which will take place on December 17, allows folks to visit the home-away-from-homes of more than 50 stars.

The money raised at both events is used to escort children from 25 different schools for a day-long holiday excursion. The day consists of a chauffeured trip from their school aboard a country music star's tour bus to a photo session with Santa and then to a local Wal-Mart for their own Christmas shopping spree.

All proceeds from the Charlie Daniels & Friends Benefit Concert and the Tour Bus Show go toward the children's Christmas shopping. More information is available at "
