NRA Presents Alan Jackson "Keepin' It Country" Tour with Special Guest Jeff Foxworthy

Nashville, Tennessee - After you've browsed acres of new guns and gear and maybe attended a seminar at the NRA's 144th Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Nashville, TN this April, there's only one thing left to do: On Saturday, April 11, point your boots toward the Bridgestone Arena and let yourself unwind during an evening of top country music entertainment.

There are few acts that can follow last year's remarkable performance by Alabama, but country music legend Alan Jackson is certainly one. As an artist, he's sold over 60-million albums and gleaned every award possible and is a must act. Classic hits such as "Chattahoochee," "Drive," "Gone Country," "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" and "Good Time," speak of good times and country living amid this, Jackson's 25th anniversary "Keepin' It Country" tour.

2015 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville

Nashville, Tennessee - If you've ever attended theNRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits, you know it's one of the most exciting weekends a firearms enthusiast can experience. Also, so many Second Amendment supporters getting together means it's going to be crowded.

The number one choke points that can hold up your time while you stand and watch everyone else have fun is registration. Yes, the NRA Annual Meetings are free for all NRA members, but we still need to verify that you are a current member before letting you into the party. And although we have a large staff to help register attendees, you can only process tens of thousands of people so quickly.
