Country Stars Open Their Tour Buses To Help Christmas 4 Kids

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. - Hundreds of country music fans got an inside look at the tour buses used by their favorite artists, all while helping the Christmas 4 Kids organization.

This is the 25th year for the annual tour bus show. Once again this year it was held in the parking lot of the Hendersonville Walmart.

"I think it's one of the easiest thing I think celebrities can be asked to do for a good cause, It's right in our backyard, it's really just a few hours of your time to come out and help with a great cause," said country artist Gretchen Wilson.

Wilson was one of more than a dozen country artists who spent part of their Monday meeting fans and signing autographs.

The money raised by this event will partly fund a shopping trip for 400 area students.

"I got two little girls of my own and they're going to have a really good Christmas, but there's a lot of families out there that aren't as fortunate," said country artist Craig Campbell.

Monday's event and a previous Charlie Daniels concert at the Ryman Auditorium will provide each of those students with a new winter coat and $150 to spend at Walmart.

The students will arrive in style for the day of shopping. They will travel on the very buses country fans toured Monday night.

They will also enjoy lunch and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus at Hendersonville Expo Center.
