"Day of Music" Supports "Bad Dog" McCormack Trust Fund



On Sunday, August 28th, friends and supporters of  John "Bad Dog" McCormack will host a special event to raise funds for the beloved radio personality's children.  McCormack died in March 2011 after an 18-month battle with leukemia.

"The Day of Music" — presented by Lanny Fowler and Creed Brotherhood Motorcycle Club L.L.C. — will take place at Latimer Lake Park, 5633 Tulane Road, in Horn Lake, Mississippi, with Chris Jarman of 98.1 The Max serving as host. Gates will open at noon; admission is $10 and all proceeds will go to the John "Bad Dog" McCormack Trust, which provides educational and living expenses for "Bad Dog's" two sons.

Among the performers who will take the stage from 1 to 9:30 p.m.. are Jonezn; Young Guns; R.T. Scott; Tom, Dick and Harry; Dirt Brothers; Tora Tora & Hal McCormack; Todd Poole & 714;  Black Oak Arkansas; and Jimi Jamison. All performers are donating their time.

A few days prior to the event, on Monday, August 22nd, a street sign unveiling ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Signs will be posted in front of the Ronald McDonald House, at Danny Thomas Boulevard and Alabama Avenue, honoring the Memphis icon.
