Joining Travis, one of the Top 10 selling solo country artists of all time, will be country singer Collin Raye, who himself has produced 5 platinum albums and 15 #1 hits, according to a press release form Terri's Foundation.

The release notes, "But perhaps the closest to Collin's heart is his granddaughter, Haley, who is afflicted with a rare degenerative brain disorder. Collin has worked tirelessly to help find a cure for Haley and has helped other families who are faced with similar situations."

Funds raised through ticket sales and sponsorships for this event will allow Terri's Foundation to honor her legacy in many ways. Most importantly, it will allow the foundation to continue protecting the lives of vulnerable persons who are in jeopardy of having their lives hastened.

how she changed our world!

Praise God! That is awesome. Thank you for posting, Jill. I'll put the word out to my group here in Indianapolis! When musicians, artists, and pop-cultures speak out against these injustices, we're making strides. Let's run!

God gave life. He is in control of all. Whosoever takes life away, is committing murder.
Thou Shalt Not Kill.
