Country superstar Lee Greenwood will be making an appearance in Grand Junction to benefit a local  youth organization.

The concert will take place on May 15 at the Avalon Theatre in downtown Grand Junction and will benefit G.A.N.G. - a non-profit organization in Grand Junction that supports underprivileged young people through after school tutoring, art camps, and sports camps.

Lee Greenwood, with scores of country hits, is perhaps best known for the patriotic ballad "God Bless the U.S.A." The theme for the evening is honoring America and those who serve and sacrifice for her.

Also appearing with Greenwood will be IAVA veteran JP Lane. Lane was serving in Afghanistan with the US Army in 2011 when his vehicle was struck by an IED, critically injuring him, including the loss of both legs. A lifelong musician, Lane has pursued his love of music, recording an album,and performing at the last presidential inauguration.
