By Jillian Riddle Aug 8, 2016
The third annual Country for Cancer concert is Friday, Oct. 7, 2016, at the Casper Events Center. Our featured artist is country music entertainer, TV host and military veteran, Craig Morgan, with local favorite, Whiskey Rebellion, opening.
Morgan recently released a new album, A Whole Lot More To Me, featuring his latest single, "I'll Be Home Soon.”
"As a country singer, we sometimes get stereotyped as nothing but trucks and tailgates, but that doesn't mean that's all there is to us," Morgan said on his website, www.craigmorgan.com. "I want people to hear this record and go, 'Wow, there is a whole lot more to these country folks.'"
Some of Morgan’s other hits include "That’s What I Love About Sunday," "International Harvester," "Bonfire," "This Ole Boy" and "Wake Up Lovin' You.”
Whiskey Rebellion is a popular southern rock tribute band based out of Casper.
Country for Cancer raises money for Wyoming Medical Center Foundation’s Angels Cancer Care Program. The Angels serve hundreds of cancer patients every year, in addition to relieving the tremendous burden experienced by caregivers. Since 1998, they have existed through the generosity of volunteers and donations. This program has a rich history of addressing the varied concerns of cancer patients, which include offering emotional support, financial assistance, transportation and medication retrieval.
The Angels are cancer survivors, friends, family members and neighbors who provide this array of services to cancer patients and their caregivers so patients can focus on getting better.
Jillian Riddle is the the Angels Cancer Care coordinator with the Wyoming Medical Center Foundation. She is a native of North Carolina with a love for the outdoors. The Angels Cancer Care Program supports Wyoming cancer patients with non-medical needs such as wigs, gas and groceries. The Angels are volunteers, many cancer survivors themselves, who drive patients to appointments, act as mentors, make and deliver meals, and give of themselves to make sure no patient is left to fight alone.
