Preview: US 101 ‘Concert for a Cause’ combines music, philanthropy

By Langston Carter, Chattanooga, Tenn., — Josh Turner will be performing at Concert for a Cause Tuesday, Jan. 27 at Track 29. The concert is a part of a series that US 101 started to help benefit various charities.

The doors open at 6 p.m. and the concert starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and concert attendees under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian that is 21 or older.

For the past seven years the concerts were a part of a series known as High Noon Saloon, said US 101 Promotion Director, Ashley Wiemer.

The High Noon Saloon concerts were not for a cause, only for entertainment. This concert will be the first in the Concert for a Cause series.

Proceeds from the Jan. 27 concert will benefit Steps 2 Hope. Steps 2 Hope was started by Mark Wilson when his son was severely injured after a tornado blew through his campus at Union University in Jackson, Tenn. According to Wilson, the charity’s mission is to help young adults who have lost mobility due to a traumatic event.

Steps 2 Hope will use the proceeds to help Sergeant Jason Smith of Ringgold, Ga., in his recovery. Smith lost both of his legs when he was hit by an IED in Afghanistan.

If you love country music and want to help out a good cause, don’t miss Concert for a Cause.
