PARSIPPANY, N.J. (October 2, 2015) – More than 300 service members and their families from Western Massachusetts, including Westover Air Force Reserve Base in Chicopee, will be treated to a special, live Q&A with award-winning Country music star Jana Kramer later today, all thanks to the Super 8® hotel brand and Premiere Networks.
The event, being held in advance of Kramer’s main stage performance at The Big E, New England’s Great State Fair, will be hosted by CMT After MidNite’s Cody Alan and marks the second stop of the Super 8 Military Appreciation Tour. Launched earlier this year, the tour provides service members and their families with access to exclusive, one-of-a-kind events featuring top name Country music stars and is a part of a larger, ongoing effort by Super 8 to recognize and celebrate those who serve.
“As one of the world’s largest and most recognizable hospitality brands, Super 8 is proud to support our service men and women and especially those from the Westover Air Force Reserve Base and the surrounding area,” said Mike Mueller, brand senior vice president for Super 8. “These individuals have made incredible sacrifices and so it’s truly an honor for us to be able to coordinate this effort for them here today. While it pales in comparison to what they’ve done for our country, this is one small way for us to show our gratitude and thanks.”
Following the special event at The Big E’s Court of Honor Stage, attending members and their families get premium seats for Kramer’s evening show at The Big E’s Xfinity Arena, courtesy of Super 8.
The Super 8 Military Appreciation Tour marks the continuation of an ongoing relationship between Premiere Networks and Super 8, which is a long-time sponsor of the network’s national Country music radio programs and events. The tour kicked off this summer with award-winning Country music duo Montgomery Gentry in Oak Grove, Ky. For each event, service members are chosen to attend with the help of the USO.
Current and retired service men and women, as well as their spouses, can receive an exclusive 15 percent discount when they stay with Super 8 by booking with the rate code “SML.” To learn more, visit www.super8.com/military.
