Following the recent release ofÂ Â their Patriotic song, I Will Stand, popular trio Allegiance is proud to announce the I Will Stand Tour. This special tour finds them teaming up with SGMA Hall of Fame member, Nick Bruno, Country Music Legend, T Graham Brown, Patriotic organization Helping a Hero and Ben Graham Productions of the I Will Stand film. On most occasions, this tour will be a twoÂ day event featuring a concert on the first day and showing of the I Will Stand film the second. Proceeds will benefit Helping a Hero to build specialty homes for wounded Veterans.
Songwriter Jake Sammons says “My family is full of men and women who served our country. Patriotism is a strong cord that binds our hearts together as Americans. I see that cord beginning to unravel in this day and age and wanted to encourage other Christians to cling tightly to the rights and choices that we are granted in this, the Greatest Country on Earth. This song is an encouraging word to all Americans to hold fast to the foundation that our forefathers left for us.”
Regarding the tour, Kasey Kemp of Allegiance comments , “After Jake wrote the song, we began seeking opportunities to honor our American heroes with the music and beyond. We were blessed to meet Helping a Hero through Lee Greenwood (singer/songwriter of God Bless the USA) and connect with their mission. At the same time, God allowed our paths to cross with T Graham Brown who shares our vision to honor American heroes. Adding to the mix our producer, music legend Nick Bruno, and the blessing of being in the I Will Stand film, this tour began to take shape.
Allegiance is honored to have Nick Bruno joining the tour on piano. Concerning honoring our American heroes, Nick recalls, “My dad was a WWII veteran. He died last year and was buried with military honors. When they handed me the folded American Flag I was overcome with emotion. Whenever I see and hear our Heroes being honored I swell up with pride. I am blessed and honored to be a part of the “I Will Stand” tour. We should never forget!”
This special, limited, Patriotic tour is scheduled in eight cities with capacity crowds expected at each event. T Graham Brown enthusiastically adds, “It’s gonna be a great time honoring our American heroes and praising God. Come on out to hear the music, see the movie and help a hero.”
