Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban & More Help “Ty, Kelly & Chuck” Send 100,000 Thank You Cards to the Troops

When Nash morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck decided to partner with the USO on Nov. 1 for an initiative to send 100,000 thank you cards to overseas troops, the co-hosts had no idea the outpouring of support they would receive from the country music community, including stars Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Justin Moore, Cole Swindell, Lee Brice, Chase Rice and Old Dominion.

“Setting the goal of 100,000 was intimidating, but we felt like if we hadn’t pushed for so many, we’d only be lowering the ultimate result,” says co-host Ty Bentli. “The response has been incredible, and the stories from the soldiers have show how much these letters mean to them.”

Letters have come from as far away as North Pole, Alaska, and from organizations like the NFL’s New York Giants. In addition, thousands of letters have poured in from elementary schools across the country.

“I love seeing all the cards come in from elementary schools,” says co-host Chuck Wicks. “Nothing is better than seeing a card made by a kid. Those are the sweetest thank yous.”

The country music community has show its support as well—in a big way.

“Having so many country stars—Tim, Faith, Blake, Keith and many more—come to the show to drop off personalized cards has been amazing,” added co-host Kelly Ford. “It just goes to show the love and support our listeners and the country music community have for our troops.”

The morning show has collected more than 30,000 letters so far. To help them reach their goal of 100,000 before Dec. 5, you can send a thank you card to:

I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
