#WHOF2019 event adds a special moment to pay tribute to those in uniform, and take a moment of silence for our fallen heroes, featuring
In commemoration of the 9/11 tragedies, White House On Fire announces the overall importance of the entire day-long music fest taking place, Saturday Oct. 5 in White House, TN.
In addition to an action-packed day of great talent, White House On Fire producers have included a special tribute to those who serve us all. As a transition from day-time country music, into night time rock n roll, the highlight of the day will be a moment on stage where everyone in attendance has the opportunity to say thank you and salute those in both military and emergency response uniforms, during the #whof2019 Uniform Gratitude Ceremony.
“We have planned a very special ceremony to say thanks to those so very deserving of our appreciation,” says event founder, Brion Gamboa. “We have an amazing lineup of music talent on stage all day and all night but the reason we are all here is for our heroes in uniform, and want to take a moment to say thanks!”
Co-producer, Brian Bayley says, “Our military sleep in foxholes and on top of equipment every day they are in action, dodging bullets and bombs, so that we can sleep at night in the peace and comfort of our own beds. These guys are the real heroes of this awesome event, and we are excited to invite uniforms of all sorts; active and inactive military, fire, police, EMS, to join us as we take a moment to pay tribute and thank them for their service.
In addition to the WHOF Gratitude Ceremony, a full lineup of music fills the day. Toddzilla and his Rip-Roarin’ Big Top kicks off the daylong event with a bang! Pop music then follows with a couple beautiful and talented ladies, Shelly Leatherman and Samyra Lanae. Country Music then kicks off with Tim Pickett, followed by a full-on country show by Jamie Lee Thurston.
Following Thurston will be a special one-of-a-kind culmination to the White House On Fire country-music performances. The debut of the #WHOF2019 Country Music Allstar Jam includes Sean Fuller from Florida Georgia Line, Quinton Gibson from Darius Rucker’s band, Kevin Post from Blake Shelton’s band and Quinn Messer from Brett Eldredge.
The Country Allstar Jam wraps up daytime music, followed by our special ceremony to say thank you. Thereafter, the music changes over to the Rocktober celebration into the night, also featuring a variety of appearances. Guests include members from TESLA, Winger, Ted Nugent, Rod Stewart, Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, the Voice, and more.
The cancellation of this year’s Kid Rock Fish Fry also sparked the addition of Kid Kentucky to the bill; a Kid Rock tribute act, so that the Fish Fry fans still have live Kid Rock music to enjoy that same night they were already planning.
