The fund-raiser will be held Saturday, July 13, at the Rocker B Ranch in Graford and will feature Willie Robertson, CEO of Commander Duck Calls and star of the A&E television show "Duck Dynasty," as master of ceremonies. The preliminary line-up includes a headline appearance by country artist Tracey Lawrence; Burleson native, the Casey Donahew Band; and Turnpike Troubadours. A surprise Texas country performer will be announced July 5 as an addition to the line-up. In April 2011, a series of massive wildfires burned out of control in Palo Pinto and Young counties. During these devastating fires, over 1.5 million acres were destroyed and more than 300 homes were burned to the ground. In response to the fires and the financial strain it put on the area's volunteer fire departments, a group of local property owners created the Buckets and Boots Foundation. "We had a goal in mind," said Buckets and Boots spokesman Lance Byrd. "We wanted a way to raise funds to repair and upgrade fire fighting equipment."
