CHRIS YOUNG NAMES USAA AN OFFICIAL SPONSOR
OF 2019 HEADLINE TOUR
Multi-platinum entertainer Chris Young today announced USAA as an Official Sponsor of the “Raised On Country Tour 2019.” USAA, a leading provider of insurance, banking and other financial services to members of the U.S. military and their families, will team with Chris Young to create memorable experiences for military, veterans and their families throughout the coast-to-coast headlining tour. Chris Young’s “Raised On Country Tour 2019” kicks off May 16 in Alpharetta, Georgia with over 25 shows through September.
With the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville, USAA, Official NFL Salute to Service Partner, kicked-off celebrations by hosting a special NFL Draft USAA Salute to Service event for invited military members stationed at Fort Campbell. The event, which took place earlier today at The Steps at WME, featured an acoustic performance by Chris Young and a Q&A session featuring NFL Legend Joe Thomas. Following the on-stage portions of the event, both Chris Young and Joe Thomas met with military members, signing autographs and posing for pictures.
“From performing for our service members at military installations around the world to my sister and brother-in-law’s own service in the U.S. Marines, I’ve seen firsthand the many sacrifices our military and their families make every day in service to our country,” said Chris Young. “I’m excited to have USAA on board for my 2019 tour and I’m looking forward to meeting our service members at all the shows.”
“Creating unique and memorable experiences for today’s service members is one way USAA shows our appreciation. We are excited to bring together Chris Young, a noted military supporter, and the NFL for a once-in-a-lifetime event at the start of a special year honoring and appreciating our true heroes,” said Army veteran and USAA Bank President Chad Borton. “Whether a memorable summer on tour with Chris Young, or personal interactions with NFL players and legends, or simply being there when our members need us, USAA continues its mission of serving our military, veterans and their families.”
Memorable experiences that USAA will work with Chris Young to create for military at all 2019 tour dates include access to premium tickets, meet & greets, and other VIP experiences to be announced.
