AMERICA SALUTES YOU ‘GUITAR LEGENDS 4’ TO BROADCAST AND STREAM BENEFIT CONCERT ACROSS MULTIPLE PLATFORMS DURING WEEK OF VETERANS DAY

America Salutes You, its sponsors and charitable partners are pleased to announce that ‘Guitar Legends 4’ will be broadcasted and streamed on multiple networks the week of Veterans Day (November 11, 2020). All four major networks’ platforms are participating this year: Fox broadcast stations, ABC digital broadcast stations, Viacom’s cable channels, CMT, VH1 Classic, along with cable channels AXS, Circle TV, RFDTV, Armed Forces Network. The benefit concert will also be streamed on YouTube, Amazon, Fox Nation, Verizon, NBC’s Peacock, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.

This year’s star-studded event will feature returning host Billy Gibbons, and feature music greats Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Big and Rich, Tedeschi/Trucks, Mike Love, Kenny Loggins, Julio Iglesias Jr., Keb’ Mo’, The Bacon Brothers, Lindsey Ell, and Larkin Poe. These artists who are donating their time, taped their performances at various locations across the country from LA, to NY, to Nashville and Miami.

“As Americans, we need to spend more time openly talking about our mental health with our families, with our friends, and within our communities,” said Surgeon General VADM Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H. “We need to be there for each other, to offer support in a time of crisis. By raising our voices and working together, we can remove stigma and other barriers to care and counseling.”

Bob Okun, CEO of America Salutes You, said: “America Salutes You continues to assist our men and women in uniform, our veterans, our first responders and, of course, their families. It is an honor to partner, for the first time, with the US Department of Veterans Affairs to help deliver their messaging on veterans’ mental wellbeing and su***de prevention.”

Strategic partner and collaborator, Entertainment Industries Council (EIC), is the seminal organization that informs the entertainment industry about critically important health and social issues. "America Salutes You, US Dept. of Veterans Affairs and EIC are uniquely positioned to communicate life-saving information through the Guitar Legends 4 special", said Marie Gallo Dyak, EIC President and CEO.

The event will also raise awareness among a wide range of veteran-, military-, and first responder-serving non-profit organizations. This year’s event will highlight our heroic doctors and nurses on the front lines. All public donations will go to support the various non-profits and will be raised via text and online fundraising during broadcasts and streams. Returning sponsors include Walgreens, KLOVE Media, The Center for Discovery, Davis Elkins Foundation, Production Glue, along with new sponsors, Medstar Health, USO, Amazon, Verizon, Perfect Technician Academy, Jexan, and Vamboa.

This year’s charitable recipients include TAPS, Heart and Armor Foundation for Veterans Health, The McCain Institute Foundation, CreatiVets, Operation Stand Down of TN., Veterans Support Foundation, Patriotic Service Dog Foundation, and Bridging the Gap Foundation.

A great comic and good person , yakov helped with the EIC buckle up seat belt awareness program . Stay Mighty!

They say laughter is the best medicine and it’s cheaper than a healthcare plan. Look, I’m too old to lie to you. In times like this, you can either laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh and this is very appropriate right now. That recipe has always worked for me when my life hit hurdles. Going back to when we came to America. We finally got the call to leave Russia. We had to be on the Freedom train in two hours. We had our meager belongings in our suitcases. My dad invented a cement tester that we sold on the black market. We took all the money and glued it to the inside of our suitcases. When we got to the Freedom Train the KBG called us traitors and took all of the valuables. They didn’t see the money inside the suitcase. We got to Italy and we tried to spend our money. The Italians laughed and said it was worthless. My dad and I wanted to cry and my mom looked at us and said: “Look at the Brightside.”

“What brightside?” said my dad. “At least we have plenty of toilet paper.” said my mom.
The constant in our life was that we found the funny in all the situations. It helped us deal with the communal aparments, the immigration challengess and, even though, my parents are gone. It will help me deal with the oandemic. So keep laughing America, it boosts your immunity.And Look at the bright side of this pandemic like we don’t have to deal with close talkers anymore.
