Kid Rock, Stevie Nicks and More Part of Homeless Vets Campaign

(BM) Some big names in the music business have leant their voices to public service announcements for Veterans Matter, an Ohio based charity that to aims to decrease the number of homeless former military service people.

We were sent these details: The thirty-second announcements, airing in 110 U.S. markets from May 1 - 31, 2014, encourage listeners to pledge support by texting "VETS" to 41444, are voiced by musicians Kid Rock, Kix Brooks, John Fogerty, John Mellencamp, Darius Rucker, Darryl Worley, Stevie Nicks, ZZ Top's Dusty Hill, Emerson Drive, Jennifer Nettles, Natalie Stovall and The Drive as well as author Mitch Albom.

"It's really important to me that we take care of our service men and women," says Kix Brooks. "There are so many precautions taken to be sure they're safe while they're serving, but we also need to keep in mind what happens when they get home."

"When you are working on the streets you see veterans beaten, robbed, even killed, yet if that happened behind enemy lines Americans would be outraged," explains Veterans Matter founder Ken Leslie. "Veterans Matters is just some regular Americans taking care of our own one at a time, just because we should, and because we can, everyone can."
