Tyler Farr Salutes US Service Members at BOOTS ON THE BEACH
Coming off of National Military Appreciation month in May, Tyler Farr joined Sandals Resorts and fellow Sony Music Nashville artists to support U.S. service members at Boots on the Beach Vacation over Memorial Day weekend at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort in Jamaica. A country music celebration to benefit Boot Campaign, the event raised more than $10,000 toward promoting patriotism for America and the military community while providing assistance for the unique challenges service members and their families face during and post-service.
Hosted by Katie Cook of CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown, Tyler Farr – along with Chris Young and Jerrod Niemann – headlined the benefit that also featured appearances by Boot Campaign Ambassador Taya Kyle (widow of American Sniper Chris Kyle), Boot Campaign COO Joey Jones and additional performances by Sony Music Nashville artists Cam, Casey James, Josh Dorr and Logan Mize.
As part of the celebration, six deserving military couples were surprised with the vacation of a lifetime to attend Boots on the Beach Vacation courtesy of Funjet Vacations. In addition to the military couples, 20 sweepstakes winners were given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the Funjet Vacations Do Something You’ll Never Forget Meet and Greet VIP Experience, offering one-on-one time with all the artists.
In addition to the star-studded performances, the weekend featured exciting events with the country artists such as the Sandals Beach Olympics, VIP meet-and-greets and excursions for the military couples including an Island Routes catamaran cruise, and a visit to Villa Rio Chico with the Sandals Foundation and a tribute performance at the Jamaican home of country music legend Johnny Cash, where Sony Music honored his musical success at Sony with a plaque commemorating sales of more than 14 million records.
Boots on the Beach Vacation was produced in association with Sandals Resorts, Sony Music Nashville, Alliance Connection Productions, All Access Experience, Jamaica Tourist Board, Funjet Vacations and of course, Boot Campaign.
