Vermont Children’s Aid Society today announced Nashville recording artist
and Vermont native and resident Wayne Warner is releasing an All-Star charity CD to help
spread the word about the needs of children entitled “Christmas Is.” The disc is slated for a mid-
November release.

Besides Warner, the disc features country stars Aaron Tippin, Taylor Swift, Larry King’s wife
Shawn King, and Jimmy Fortune of The Statler Brothers, in addition to Cathie Baillie, John
Berry, Linda Davis, Becky Hobbs, Lila McCann, the Nashville All-Star Choir, Dave Pomeroy,
Pam Tillis, Bryan White and more

To purchase a CD, visit the “Make a Donation” page at
and make an $18 donation with a comment of “CD purchase.” Half of each purchase price will
go directly to supporting VCAS programs for children and families.

Says Warner, “It is an amazing thing to be able to bring these singers and musicians together to
help young people across the country, and right here in my own backyard. I have visited the
Vermont Children’s Aid Society and as a dad of adopted children, I became a huge fan of not
only what they do, but of who they are. I know that Mother Country Music is smiling with pride
upon this project and some of her favorite voices who unite to make ‘Music That Matters.’ We
know that country music fans have big hearts and are always there when there is a need. And too
many children are surely in need.”
