Blake Shelton Praises Mother Of Charlottesville Victim

Blake Shelton lent his support to mother of the Charlottesville, Virginia victim killed in the recent white nationalist rally. Yesterday (Wednesday, August 16th) he seemed to be referring to Susan Bro's speech during her daughter's memorial service when he tweeted, "Incredible words from Heather Heyer’s mother Susan Bro. If you missed it look for it. What a strong and inspiring person."

Bro said, in part, "I think the reason that what happened to Heather has struck a chord is because we know that what she did was achievable. They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her. I want this to spread. I don’t want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather’s legacy. I’d rather have my child, but by golly, if I gotta give her up, we’re gonna make it count."

Heyer was killed when James A. Fields, Jr. drove his car into the crowd of protestors. He is facing second-degree murder charges in her death.

Kip Moore, Tony Hawk Team Up For 'Music City Skate Jam'

Kip Moore has teamed up with international skateboarding champion Tony Hawk for the Music City Skate Jam presented by Harley-Davidson, set to take place on September 10th in downtown Nashville. With a shared outlook running through the Kip’s Kids Fund and the Tony Hawk Foundation with the goal of benefiting and empowering youth, the event will raise funds for both initiatives. The day will include a skate demo by Hawk as well as performances by newcomer Jordan Davis and a performance by Moore.

The singer told us about his relationship with Hawk and their upcoming joint fundraiser. "It looks like it kind of just developed into a new friendship. Tony Hawk is an icon in the X game working and skating world. He's been building skate parks on a grand scale in the inner cities for a long time while I'm a new baby at it, so I'm flattered and humbled that he wanted to this, but we've just been talking about teaming up, and he's gonna bring his vert ramp and his skate team into Nashville, go down there around Broadway and I'm gonna set up a stage and they're gonna do a show, I'm gonna do a show and all the proceeds are gonna go to both of our foundations, Kip's Kids and his foundation, and, yeah, we're gonna try to build some more parks in the inner cities."

Hawk said, "The Music City Skate Jam is the first event of its kind, bringing skateboarding and country music together. I’m excited to show Nashville an unprecedented display of talent, including some of the world’s best skaters and Kip Moore himself."

Kip's new album, Slowheart, will be released on September 8th. It features his latest hit, "More Girls Like You."
