Skaggs, Turner and Others Push for Voter Participation

Ricky Skaggs and Josh Turner are among the artists involved in a non-partisan campaign billed as Your Country Your Vote. The artists share common ground by contributing tracks to the compilation CD, America Will Always Stand. Released in June, the CD features original songs inspired by the Civil War. The campaign for voter participation was officially announced Tuesday (Aug. 17) during a media event at Skaggs’ recording studio near Nashville. Skaggs, Billy Dean and Marty Raybon attended the event. The CD also features performances by Randy Travis, Darryl Worley, Lee Ann Womack, Blake Shelton, Collin Raye and others.
