Country Strong        Friday

SaskTel Centre

The Humboldt Broncos bus crash led to an outpouring of emotional and financial support from the whole country. Here in Saskatoon it’s hard to go through your day without coming across someone that wasn’t personally affected by the accident. It’s a small world and that’s why the Canadian country music community is banding together to do what it can to help out. The Country Thunder Music Festivals Foundation is partnering with musicians like Jess Moskaluke, Brett Kissel, Gord Bamford and Chad Brownlee to stage a benefit concert to support the 29 families who are dealing with the aftermath of the crash. There are still a few tickets available for the show and all the profits are going directly to the families. Tickets are all $65.
