Halfway to Hazard’s 2nd Annual ATV / UTV Charity Trail Ride

Halfway to Hazard's 2nd Annual ATV / UTV Charity Trail RideCountry duo Halfway to Hazard has announced the musical line-up and activities for the 2nd Annual Halfway to Hazard Charity Trail Ride, a weekend of music and over 1,000 ATV’s happening August 22-23, set in the beautiful hills of Eastern Kentucky. A special guest performance will be made by Halfway to Hazards self-proclaimed “biggest fan,” country superstar Tim McGraw. Dierks Bentley, Danielle Peck, Gabe Garcia, Bomshell, and Whiskey Falls, are among the other popular names in country music who will perform to help raise money to benefit Buckhorn Children’s and Family Center in Crockettsville, Kentucky. Special appearances will be made by NASCAR legend Kyle Petty, Motorcross great Ricky Carmichael, and music artists Randy Houser, James Otto, Keith Anderson, and Jeremy Popoff, who will be just of the names participating in the ATV ride.

Last year’s inaugural event drew over 7,500 people and raised over $110,000 for Buckhorn Children’s Center, an organization committed to caring for suffering children in the area.

WHO: As Halfway to Hazard’s self-proclaimed biggest fan, country superstar Tim McGraw gave the band an opening slot on his and wife Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour (the highest-grossing tour of 2007) followed by an opening slot for McGraw and Jason Aldean in 2008. Their hook-driven music and crowd pleasing high-energy live shows earned them an Academy of Country Music “Best New Duo” Award nomination in 2008.

Halfway to Hazard’s Chad Warrix, a native of Breathitt County and one-half of the duo along with Knott County native David Tolliver, comments, “Growing up in Eastern Kentucky, riding these trails was a way of life and, along with playing music, our main source of entertainment. Coupling a ride with a concert where we grew up while being able to give back to our community is a dream come true. Being able to promote our beautiful native region and its amazing people is a huge bonus for us.”

Halfway to Hazard is currently on a radio tour promoting their new single, “I Know Where Heaven Is,” an uptempo song which evokes strong images of family, life, love, and country living. The single began impacting Country radio on July 20 and will appear on the duo’s yet-to-be named sophomore album (StyleSonic/Picnic Hill Records/Bigger Picture) due out in the third quarter of 2009. www.halfwaytohazard.com
