Romney in Manchester, New Hampshire, while Randy Owen will bring the campaign trail for Congressman Ryan to a close in Wisconsin singing Alabama hits that lead him to become a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Hitting Ohio during the final two-days included performances by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sam Moore, The Marshall Tucker Band, country star Rodney Atkins, gospel-country group The Oak Ridge Boys, and Tim Rushlow (lead singer of hit-making group Little Texas), while various other artists including Big & Rich, Trace Adkins, Meat Loaf, John Ondrasik (Five for Fighting), Cowboy Troy, Lee Greenwood, Ricky Skaggs, Mark Wills, Lorrie Morgan, JoDee Messina, The Roys, Jamie O’Neal, Bryan White, Jett Williams, Baillie & The Boys, Lisa Matassa, Jeff Foxworthy, Collin Raye, John Michael Montgomery, T.G. Sheppard and more have criss-crossed the United States to entertain crowds at rally events.
“I love and respect my Country and I want it back! I want the Country that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and so many others including myself marched for; that we gave blood and sweat to help create, that’s why I support Mitt Romney for President,” says Sam Moore of Sam & Dave fame.
“I am supporting Mitt Romney because our country is in an economic mess and Mitt Romney is a businessman. The Oak Ridge Boys have to balance our books every year. Obama has exploded our budget and national debt. With the stimulus money, he used borrowed money to buy government jobs and pay off his supporters. Very few ‘real’ jobs were created. We need real change,” said Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys.
Doug Gray of The Marshall Tucker Band stated, “We have been a small business for over 40 years, and we want to see other small businesses succeed. The Presidential race is drawing to a close, so we knew it was time to put our efforts to the cause. This is the most monumental vote that we will probably see in our entire lifetime – the most important vote to elect the next President of the United States.”
Christian artist Michael W. Smith endorses the Romney-Ryan ticket adding, “I value the sanctity of human life, I value the biblical definition of traditional marriage, and I value the principals this great nation was founded on. And that is why I support Mitt Romney for President. This is a man of great principle and integrity with a strong moral compass that , I believe, will be a great President – at a time we are desperate for leadership.”
It’s our responsibility as US citizens to exercise our right to vote. There are clear cut choices in this election that will determine the direction of our country. I will be casting my vote for Mitt Romney – and I hope you’ll consider doing the same.”
Rodney Atkins adds, “I support what Gov. Romney plans to do to support our military and families. And furthermore, I just believe in Governor Romney.”
