Gary Allan has joined the likes of Dolly Parton, Charlie Daniels, George Jones, Gretchen Wilson, the Rock, Troy Aikman and Nolan Ryan in supporting a charity called The Boot Campaign.
The group raises money and awareness for various military charities, focusing specifically on charities that help veterans cope with physical and mental illnesses.
Speaking with AOL's theboot.com, which is not associated with the charity, Allan said he was compelled by his own memories of service to help out his fellow veterans:
"As a former member of the Army, this holds a special place in my heart," Gary says.
"I'm proud to work with such a fine organization. I'm headlining the Throwdown Tour this year and was glad to see that the Boot Campaign was going to be on the road with us. It's great that a tour of this size is working hand in hand with the Boot Campaign, supporting veterans as they come home from combat . . . it just feels right," he added.
