“Coming Soon: An All-Star Salute to Lee Greenwood”
The star-studded concert film will be a one-night-only attraction in theaters Nov. 12.
Lee Greenwood is ready for his close-up. And he’s happy to share the spotlight with a few good friends.
An All-Star Salute to Lee Greenwood is coming to a movie theater near you over Veterans Day weekend — specifically, Nov. 12 — with a star-studded lineup of country artists performing some of Greenwood’s biggest hits during a tribute concert at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Among the notables on the bill: Dustin Lynch, Lee Brice, Michael Ray, Michael W Smith and The Isaacs, The Oak Ridge Boys, Tracy Lawrence, Big & Rich, Jamey Johnson, Gavin DeGraw, Scott Stapp of Creed, Crystal Gayle, Sam Moore and T Graham Brown, Larry Gatlin and Debby Boone, Mark Wills, Home Free, The Frontmen, Ty Herndon, and Janie Fricke.
“I performed at the George Jones Farewell concert, which was supposed to be his last show, but turned into a tribute show — and they didn’t film it,” says Greenwood. “I reflect on that day as over 100 artists were all together for one reason, and that was to honor a friend. I wished they would have taped it so we could reminisce about that special day. So when they discussed doing this special tribute to my career, I only wanted to do it if they filmed it so anyone that can’t be there in person can celebrate with us at a later date.”
Tickets for An All-Star Salute to Lee Greenwood will go on sale on Friday, August 4, via Fathom Events. But wait, there’s more: Concerts 4 A Cause, a 501(c)(3) organization, has teamed up with Greenwood and Adoptavet.com to allow the public to sponsor a veteran and their guest/caregiver to enjoy the one-night-only event.
“On the night we filmed this special I was overwhelmed and overjoyed at the same time, says Greenwood. “I couldn’t believe so many great artists came to honor my music. On top of that, my entire family sat in the front row to witness this magical evening with me. I could not have been prouder.
“Now to share that special night with veterans, first responders, and country music fans with this premiere presentation in theaters is a perfect way to celebrate my forty-year career, which has included honoring so many of them.”
