Buddy Jewell Gives Back to our “Unstrung Heroes!”
Buddy Jewell burst onto the country music scene after winning the inaugural season of the hit television series “Nashville Star”, beating, most notably, a young Miranda Lambert, by over 2 million votes. After Buddy’s win, Columbia Records released his self-titled debut album “Buddy Jewell” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts as well as #13 on the Top 100 Pop Album Charts. The album was certified Gold later that same year, selling over ½ million copies. Buddy’s first two singles, “Sweet Southern Comfort” and “Help Pour Out the Rain (Lacey’s Song)” both landed in the top 5 on the singles chart. Jewell has since followed up with 6 more albums, including his new release “Reloaded“.
The year that followed his win on Nashville Star was truly a dream fulfilled for Buddy. He earned major award nominations from the ACM for Best New Artist, the CMA for the Horizon Award, their version of the Best New Artist of the Year and a Grammy nomination for his participation in Amazing Grace III, a special gospel project. He was also named “New Artist of the Year” by the prestigious ABC Radio Networks.
Jewell has also been a constant supporter of our men and women in uniform throughout his career. In December 2010, Buddy traveled with the Sergeant Major of the Army, Kenneth O. Preston to Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait on an extensive USO tour, visiting and performing for our troops in remote forward operating bases, “If they can put their lives on the line for me and my family on a daily basis, spending a couple weeks facing the same challenges and hostile environment as they do is the least I can do to show my appreciation.” “I believe in giving back”, asserts Jewell. “Everyone can make a positive difference. With a little time and a little effort, we can make this world a better place.”
Buddy’s new release “Reloaded“, with BAM and Pangea Records, echoes his support of our nation’s Power Linemen and blue collar workers. The backbone of our country. The men and women who serve without recognition and very little thanks. Many of whom have the most dangerous jobs in the U.S. With high accident and fatality rates, some pay the ultimate price. Buddy has chosen to support the families of these unsung and “Unstrung Heroes” by donating a generous portion of this records’ sales to our Organization! 100% of these proceeds will directly help injured Power Line-workers and their families, and the families of the Fallen. Thank you, Buddy Jewell.
