Big & Rich, John Michael Headline American Legion Gulf Area Fundraiser

Big & Rich and John Michael Montgomery are scheduled to perform at a three-day country-music festival March 23-25 at South Mississippi's Harrison County Fairgrounds.

Dubbed the 2007 All Star Jamboree and hosted by the American Legion, "the event was organized to rebuild Legion posts on the Coast, and to replenish the National Legion Emergency Relief Fund, as well as to benefit Arms and Legs, prosthetics for veterans, and other Coast and national veteran's organizations and programs," said L.D. Carrico, an event spokesperson. Organizers will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. Tuesday at American Legion Post 119 in Gulfport to present details of the festival.

The festival will feature both major and minor country players, including the Bellamy Brothers, T Graham Brown, Eddy Raven, Moe Bandy, songwriter Bobby Boyd, Copper Rose and Scott Hisey.
