SHOOTING FOR THE MOON

Country music artist, Rhett Akins, says he's extremely pleased with the outcome of the charity event and looks forward to helping it expand to other regions of the country. 
"Sam and I have been friends for a long time, and when we get together, we shoot for the moon," Akins says. "We knew the Country Goes Huntin' idea would work, but we had no idea that it would take off this quickly. We thought it would take many more years before the event would raise more than $100,000. I think we experienced more success this year than in years past because we started working on the event a little bit earlier. I called 15 stars and thought only a handful of them would actually participate, but we ended up having 12 major country musicians take part."

Partnership of Hope

After guiding several young disabled hunters following a Wheelin' Sportsmen banquet four years ago, Klement called up his childhood friend and fellow hunter, Country Music Star Rhett Akins, with an idea.
"Those disabled children touched my heart, and I wanted to do something for them," Klement says. "I told Rhett that we had the resources to put on an awesome fundraiser for the Wheelin' Sportsmen program. With his involvement in the country music scene and my involvement in the hunting scene, we could put together a fundraiser that combined the best of both worlds."

2007 country goes huntin a huge success-cghturkey
The 6th annual Country Goes Huntin' 2007 was a huge success! A packed crowd of over 3700 people came out and supported the efforts at the National Peanut Fairgrounds in Dothan Alabama on a Tuesday night!

There were a total of 19 artists that donated their time to perform at this year’s event ranging from Aaron Tippon to Cowboy Troy. The crowd went crazy when Larry the Cable Guy called in via satellite phone and gave a few CGH classic jokes. The highlight of the night was when Double Barrel Daryle Singletary and Rhett Akins teamed up and performed a double song set in memory of the Enterprise Al tornado victims. They sang "Amazing Grace" and "If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away” while video clips of the recent devastation to the town of Enterprise played on the big screen. This year there were over $200,000 in product and donations received during the event.
