Liberty Creek Vineyards and Grammy(R)-Nominated Country Artist David Nail Team up to Support Operation Gratitude

MODESTO, Calif., Oct. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Creek Vineyards and GRAMMY®-nominated country artist David Nail have partnered with Operation Gratitude to help servicemen and servicewomen this holiday season with "Tunes for Troops," a program that provides music for care packages to U.S. troops serving overseas. The program kicks off in October and will run through the end of the year. To express their gratitude, Liberty Creek Vineyards will:

  • Donate $15,000 to Operation Gratitude to support their Holiday Package Drive.
  • Enable consumers to show their support via specially tagged bottles of Liberty Creek wine, donating up to an additional $10,000 to be used by Operation Gratitude to provide copies of David Nail's latest CD, The Sound of a Million Dreams, to our troops serving overseas.

"Here at Liberty Creek Wines, we want our troops to know that we appreciate the sacrifices they are making each and every day, especially during the holiday season," says Will Purvis, Brand Manager, Liberty Creek Vineyards. "It's our privilege to partner with Operation Gratitude and David Nail, to help provide some holiday cheer during a difficult time to be away from loved ones."

"I'm honored to be a part of Liberty Creek's Operation Gratitude program," said David Nail when asked about his participation in the program. "It is humbling and inspiring that my music can be a part of sending care packages to the troops."

Operation Gratitude sends care packages and letters personally addressed to U.S. Service Members, including those who have been wounded while they are recovering in transition units.

"We are delighted to receive this support from Liberty Creek Wines and David Nail, and we believe the CDs will make our care packages even more meaningful," says Carolyn Blashek, Founder of Operation Gratitude. "Country music speaks to themes that reinforce the simple pleasures in life—home, friends, family and loved ones, which can be comforting to a Service Member who is far from home, especially during the holidays."
