MN radio station hopes to help military families with 'Country Music Salute' CD


For the second year in a row, BOB FM 106.1 is hoping to help military families with a country music tribute.

The station's "Minnesota Country Music Salute CD" was released late last week – the CD features 17 original songs from 17 local country artists.

All proceeds benefit the Minnesota Military Family Foundation and Tribute to the Troops.

CDs cost $10 and can be purchased at Wendy's locations in the Twin Cities, St. Cloud and Alexandria. Volume 1 of the compilation raised more than $20,000 in 2014. Here's a map with the participating restaurants.

“We’re hoping to shatter last year’s record of CD sales and blow last year’s donation amount out of the water with this year’s version of the CD, which not only is going to a great cause, but features very strong songs from our awesome local musicians”, BOB FM's Neil Freeman said in a release.

Here's the full track list:

1. “Stupid Money” - Rockie Lynne

2. “Fearless (Acoustic)” - Kat Perkins

3. “I Love My Country” - Chris Hawkey

4. “Georgia Peach” - Shane Martin
