The 3rd Annual Rock N' Jock Celebrity Softball Game - taking place during this year's CMA Music Fest - has announced their two teams and their captains. In the first base dugout is Team Jelly Roll, led by the "Need A Favor" singer himself, and in the third base dugout is Team Riley Green, led by the rising country star. Both teams take the field to have fun, engage with fans and raise money for Folds Of Honor Tennessee, a charity organization which awards scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen or disabled military. And while it may be all in fun and for a great cause, Jelly Roll is bringing his "A" game; on the Instagram post that listed both team's rosters, JR said, "My team deserved it’s own post - I love Riley - I really do - he’s one of my closest friends - but I’m coming to smack a** next week," he wrote. "This is war.. and WE ARE SPARTA." Check out the rosters for both teams below:
Team Riley Green: Riley Green, Will Compton, Brantley Gilbert, Brian Littrell, Jameson Rodgers, Chris Lane, Shawn Booth, Michael Collazo, Julia Cole, Chuck Wicks, Missy Franklin, Jerry Stackhouse, Courtney Harvey, Warren Zeiders, Scuba Steve, and Jason Crabb will compete on Team Green.
Team Jelly Roll: Jelly Roll, Michael Chandler, Eric Cattaneo, Taylor Lewan, Morgan #2, HARDY, Lunchbox, Cortland Finnegan, RaeLynn, Charles Esten, Struggle Jennings, John Crist, ERNEST, Zachary Plese, Mitchell Tenpenny, Andrew East, Danae Hayes, and Shawn Johnson.
Luke Bryan's annual farm tours are a cool alternative to parking garages and city skylines, arena shows and nosebleed seats. Instead, every year Luke does a short series of concerts in more rural settings, in towns and cities not ordinarily found on an artists schedule. The farm tour has been a yearly event on Luke's schedule since 2009, and not only does it bring country music to areas that usually don't see shows of this size, but the annual event awards college scholarships to students from local farm families in each of the markets where the tour plays, as well as raising funds and providing resources in those underserved communities. Luke's 2023 Farm Tour has been announced - dates, locales, and tour openers. Coming along for the ride are Kameron Marlowe, Chayce Beckham, the Peach Pickers and DJ Rock, and the five shows will take place over a week and a half - the last few days of summer.
