CAPITOL NASHVILLE act LITTLE BIG TOWN are hopping off their “Pontoon” for a couple of minutes to climb on their motorcycles for their annual RIDE FOR A CURE benefit ride and concert on Sunday, June 10th in Nashville, with proceeds benefiting the T.J. MARTELL FOUNDATION. This will be the group’s 6th consecutive year hosting the ride.
The ride will start at MICKEY ROO’S in the KROGER INDEPENDENCE SQUARE parking lot on Hillsboro Pike in Franklin, Tennessee (located south of Nashville). Registration begins at 8a (CT). Post-ride festivities will begin at 12p (CT) and includes performances by LAUREN ALAINA, DEAN ALEXANDER, LOVE AND THEFT and LITTLE BIG TOWN as well as a live auction for all attendees.
To date over $260,000 has been raised for the T.J. Martell Foundation since the beginning of Ride For a Cure. There have been over 2,500 motorcycle riders to participate in the ride, and an additional 2,000 people have joined us over the last three years at the Harley-Davidson Columbia Superstore for the post-ride All Star Jam concert. Past performers and supporters include Martina McBride, Jamey Johnson, The Band Perry and Luke Bryan among others.
Little Big Town is currently scaling the country charts with their latest single, “Pontoon,” the perfect summertime song! The single will be available on iTunes beginning May 22nd.
