Huge thanks to Monarch Publicity for sharing this terrific photo at Facebook today; Bucky Covington, Kidde President Jim Ward, Mickey Milam of Help the Good Guys and Kidde's Chris Rovenstine kicked off the "Be A Hero, Save A Hero" fire-safety campaign this morning at Nashville Fire Department Station #9. The goal is to raise $20,000 for injured firefighters and their families via HTGG and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, and to raise awareness of home fire-safety precautions. If you'd like to help, it's as easy as visiting the AlarmPledge.com website and taking the pledge...
Bucky's red-carpet ride to tonight's CMA Awards was also a highlight--who needs a limo when you can arrive in a beautiful vintage fire truck? Check out another shot here, and stay tuned to Bucky's Facebook and the Help the Good Guys timeline as the night rolls on. It's safe to guess that lots more CMA Awards shots are on their way!
More photos from the campaign launch and the red carpet were shared by Prince George Fire Department Chief Marc Bashoor, who was a key participant in both events today; his Lockerz album is here.
We'll be back with more ASAP--in the meantime, be sure to catch the CMA Awards red carpet livestream here at CMT, and watch the awards tonight at 8 (7 Central) on ABC. See you soon!
