Here is the official press release sent out yesterday:
Six Market Blvd. is a name that has been getting a steady flow of attention over the last year with the release of their latest record SHAKE IT DOWN. Released independently in May of 2012 and re-released nationally in November of that same year, the record has spun a most powerful web that has captured debuting positions on the Billboard charts and the iTunes country chart, a Top 10 single on the Texas Music Chart and an entanglement of national acclaim in high profile outlets including the HuffingtonPost.com, Country Weekly Magazine, Texas Music Magazine and Billboard’s The 615 music blog. These Stephenville, Texas-based boys sure have come a long way in a short time and they continue their march into expanding territories donning their newly acquired combat boots in honor of The Boot Campaign, a national patriotic movement that has welcomed the band into the fray earlier this year. Clayton Landau, Josh Serrato, Ben Hussey, Dallas Neal and new member Red Shahan will clock the miles in their boots along a touring path that boasts 150 plus shows a year…and counting. In their efforts to help spread awareness Six Market Blvd. will engage in fundraising opportunities and social interactions as they rally their fans around the uprising. Keep tabs on their website for event information, promotions and tour dates.
The Boot Campaign is a national 501c3 non-profit based in Texas that is dedicated to showing tangible appreciation of our active military by encouraging Americans to “get their boots on”. By lacing up a pair of the Boot Campaign’s signature combat boots, Americans are showing appreciation for troops, cultivating awareness of the challenges they face upon return and raising funds for military programs meeting the physical and emotional needs of our heroes. Through the sale of its signature combat boots, general public donations, and corporate sponsorship, the Boot Campaign operates five distinct initiatives — Jobs, Housing, Family Support, Urgent Assistance and Wellness– that are caring for military personnel, past and present, healing from a variety of physical and emotional combat wounds, embodying the campaign motto that, “When They Come Back, We Give Back.” The special edition compilation CD of the same name featuring Jack Ingram, Cory Morrow, Robert Earl Keen, Micky and the Motorcars, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Eli Young Band, Aaron Watson and No Justice (just to name a few) can be purchased via the Boot Campaign store along with boots, apparel and other accessories.
The Boot Campaign is comprised of a strong and growing network of dedicated individuals and groups who volunteer countless hours of their time to ensure that the greatest impact is made in our military communities nationwide. With national coverage on The View, Fox & Friends and Glenn Beck the network has grown to include a slew of the “star-studded” including Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, the Detroit Red Wings, the Jacksonville Jaguars, NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, Texas Governor Rick Perry, James Carville (The Ragin’ Cajun), Dolly Parton, Gary Allen, George Jones, Kix Brooks, Randy Rogers Band, Reckless Kelly, Craig Morgan, Granger Smith, Gretchen Wilson and Charlie Daniels. Log on to their website and find out how you can get involved!
This is an organization that we are truly thrilled to be involved with, we want to encourage all of our friends and fans to get involved. It is as simple as ordering a pair or boots, or if boots aren’t your thing they have some pretty cool tee’s available as well. This is a great way to show appreciation to the men and women of our military and to help give back when they come back!
