“On the night we filmed this special, I was overwhelmed and overjoyed at the same time,” said Greenwood in a statement. “I couldn’t believe so many great artists came to honor my music. On top of that, my entire family sat in the front row to witness this magical evening with me. I could not have been prouder.

“Now, to share that special night with veterans, first responders, and country music fans with this premiere presentation in theaters is a perfect way to celebrate my 40-year career, which has included honoring so many of them,” Greenwood continued.

In an effort to acknowledge veterans, Greenwood has teamed up with Concerts 4 A Cause to allow the public to sponsor a veteran and their guest/caregiver so that they can enjoy the live concert event. General ticket information can be found, HERE. If you want to donate money to sponsor a veteran, you can find that information, HERE.
