The Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Zach Wamp is lining up a series of upcoming fundraisers hosted by country and Christian music stars.
The congressman from Chattanooga announced Wednesday that six events in March and April will feature Michael W. Smith, Casting Crowns, John Rich, T. G. Sheppard, Paul Overstreet, Larry Gatlin and the Oak Ridge Boys.
The Rich and Smith fundraisers will be held at the artists' homes in Nashville and Franklin.
In Wamp's words: "We may never have the most money in this campaign, but thanks to the support of so many, we will soon have enough money to win."
Other candidates seeking the Republican gubernatorial nomination include Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, state Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville and Memphis prosecutor Bill Gibbons.
