Songs about mama, pick-up trucks and wild nights on the town.
Those may just be your first references when someone mentions country music.
And yeah, there are plenty of those songs playing in regular rotation on local country stations WIL 92.3 and 93.7 The Bull.
But one other common denominator for country music artists – and musicians in general – is an overwhelming sense of responsibility to the community and the world.
Once again this year, country music artists – and artists from other genres too – are helping the St. Louis community by raising food and funds for families in need.
With the help of Live Nation St. Louis, the St. Louis Area Foodbank will be at each of the following concerts for a program called Rock Out to Knock Out Hunger.
At each concert, fans who donate to the St. Louis Area Foodbank will have the chance to win great prizes, including meet and greet passes with the artist, ticket upgrades and memorabilia.
For every $5 donation or donation of five canned goods, fans get one chance in the drawing for one of those awesome prizes.
