Country music legend John Anderson and Music Row Country Breakout Independent Artist of the Year Erica Nicole are headlining the 6th Annual Clayton Country Jam. Thousand Islands Winery® is hosting the three-day comedy and country music festival on September 9 -11, 2016. These dates are in conjunction with the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks and will honor, in a unique way, our nation’s first responders and service members.
As was done last year, one hour of the 9/11 Tribute concert will be broadcast live on the American Forces Network to an estimated 500,000 troops. The satellite feed is transmitted to 174 territories on U.S. Military installations located on U.S. Bases, U.S. Embassy and U.S. Consulate compounds overseas and more than 140 U.S. Naval Ships at sea operating outside U.S. territorial waters.
In addition, five more hours of the Clayton Country Jam will be streamed online. With the services of Livestream.com and the wizardry of Steve Weed Productions, 100% of all online donations generated from the viewers of the stream will go directly to the USO, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening America’s military by connecting them to their family, home and country, throughout their service.
