Will Hoge, Becky Warren join Believe in Service to raise money to change the U.S. Senate

NASHVILLE – Believe in Service, political action committee founded by Iraq war veteran James Mackler, today announced Americana musicians Will Hoge and Becky Warren will help raise money at a benefit for the organization on Monday, June 25thBelieve in Service supports U.S. Senate candidates across the country to help protect national service programs such as AmeriCorps and Legal Aid – both targeted for near elimination in President Trump’s FY 2019 budget. The benefit will be held at the historic Woolworth on 5th, an iconic site in Nashville’s Civil Rights movement and part of the U.S. Civil Rights Trail.

“Now is NOT the time to remain silent and James Mackler, an Iraq war veteran who’s always seeking ways to serve others, is an inspiration,” said Will Hoge, whose latest single “Thoughts & Prayers” was named one of the “25 Best Country Songs of 2017” by Rolling Stone. “Believe in Service, the organization James founded to help elect a new majority to the U.S. Senate in 2018, is a mission worth supporting and I am thrilled to be part of the effort.”

“Our veterans, many of whom place their lives on hold and put themselves in grave danger to keep us safe, are worth supporting,” said Becky Warren, whose recent album, “War Surplus,” follows a couple whose marriage breaks apart following a combat deployment in Iraq, due in part to PTSD. “James Mackler bravely fought for us in Iraq, and he has stepped forward again at this critical time to alter the trajectory of, and improve, our politics.”

“Service is not a partisan issue,” said James Mackler. “Nevertheless, our national service programs and many other vitally important issues are on the ballot this November. Believe in Service, fueled by individuals that want to change the U.S. Senate, is doing its part to make a difference, and I am honored to have two outstanding musicians in Will and Becky lending their talents for this benefit.”

Believe in Service has endorsed and made maximum contributions to three challengers and five incumbents running for U.S. Senate in 2018, including U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (WI), Governor Phil Bredesen (TN), U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (OH), U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (FL), U.S. Rep. Jacky Rosen (NV), U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (MI), and U.S. Senator Jon Tester (MT).
