Postcards from a Six-Foot Teddy Bear


Greetings Friends!

dsc_5494.jpgWe’re starting a new section to keep track of our favorite “six-foot teddybear” and you guessed it - we’re calling it Postcards from a Six-Foot Teddybear!  So stay tuned and keep in touch with the travels of Richie McDonald as he works hard to bring his new single to a radio station in your hometown!

We hope you’ll enjoy this postcard diary of Richie’s travels as he promotes SFTB as only he can do – straight from his heart!  For those of you who know Richie, you already know he is the ultimate SFTB!  So sit back and enjoy the first batch of postcard glimpses into the travels of a SFTB!

This travel log actually begins on May 2nd in Newark,  New Jersey.   The SFTB made some good friends when Richie sang the national anthem during the opening weekend festivities at the Bears & Eagles Stadium for the Salute to the Military Families night.

What would Florida be without a trip to the beach – check out the SFTB on the beach flirting with the Florida beach bunnies!  He also had time to go shopping for his new car – and as always there is always time for photos!

Tracy Lawrence will host his final homecoming concert in Foreman, Ark., on June 6. The event raises money to enhance educational opportunities for children in more than 35 communities around Foreman, a small town in western Arkansas, through the Tracy Lawrence Foundation. Since establishing the charity in 1993, the organization has raised more than $1 million. Through the years, the concert has featured a wide variety of guest performers ranging from Kenny Chesney and Aaron Tippin to Tone Loc and Morris Day & the Time. In scheduling the final concert, Lawrence said, "Unfortunately, we've run our course with this particular event, and the production costs have moved us to seek out other alternatives that will benefit the community in the long run. We're going to regroup to explore more cost-effective ways to raise funds for the kids." This year's event will feature  Richie McDonald, Tracy Byrd, Neal McCoy, Clay Walker, Zona Jones and Three Doors Down.
