Country superstars Little Big Town have announced plans to host the 2012 Ride For a Cure on Sunday, June 10th with the proceeds benefitting the T.J. Martell Foundation. The event will mark the sixth consecutive year the group has hosted the ride.
The 2012 Ride For a Cure will feature a new starting location for registration and the pre-ride Jam Session that will be Mickey Roo’s (509 Hillsboro Road, Franklin, TN 37069) in the Kroger Independence Square parking lot on Hillsboro Pike (see below link and QR code for specific directions). Registration begins at 8am.
At this pre-ride location guests and riders can expect performances by Cali Rodi and others on the welcome stage and then will depart at 10:30am for the Harley-Davidson Columbia Superstore.
Post-ride festivities will begin at 12pm and include a lunch hosted by Applebee’s, an All-Star Jam Session with 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.
Critically acclaimed group Little Big Town — consisting of members Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook — first entered the music scene over 14 years ago with hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” and “Good As Gone.”
The group recently finished recording their fifth studio album with producer Jay Joyce and released the albums first single “Pontoon” to radio in April. Collectively, the group has earned over 25 award show nominations and has taken home the award for ACM Top New Vocal Group.
The foursome has played in front of over 4 million people and is currently on tour nationwide. In early 2011, Little Big Town created an online video series called “Scattered, Smothered & Covered” where they tackle the challenge to make any song country. Presently their videos have had over 2 million views.
