(PRWEB) July 31, 2014
Live To Be Sober, a no-cost 24/7 confidential referral service where trained counselors provide guidance, advice and program information to people who want to help a loved one win their battle against drug or alcohol addiction, proudly announced today that it has entered into a sponsorship partnership with Jared Blake: country music’s bad boy, gone good.
"NBC's The Voice touched on my background as a recovering alcoholic,” commented Blake, whose new single Stomp (#Stomp; available on iTunes) just wrapped up its second week as the most requested song on Sirius XM The Highway’s `On The Horizon’ program (#thehighway; #onthehorizon). “My TV fans know only that aspect of my life, and having Live To Be Sober as a sponsor provides me the ability, and the responsibility, to talk further about my personal side."
As part of the sponsorship, Blake has created an intimate acoustic break within his high-energy show, where he sits alone on stage and, with unflinching honesty and intimacy, talks to audiences about his personal struggles, and most importantly, about winning back his life – and how others can, too.
“I play songs that I've written about those times in my life, and connect my story with my fans in a way that I have never done before,” added Blake. “I am grateful in many ways for Live To Be Sober being a part of this show. This is the most rewarding kind of sponsorship I could have. The whole reason I got sober was so that I could live, and the mission of Live To Be Sober is near and dear to my personal goals. I would not be here today if it were not for people continuing to spread the word about getting help.”
“The first thing that that people discover about Jared is that, unlike a lot of folks in the music and entertainment world, he’s the real deal,” commented Per Wickstrom of Live To Be Sober. “Raised between the Bible and the belt, he’s never lost touch with his small town roots or surrendered his faith -- no matter how bleak things became. His story is an inspiration, and together we hope to spread awareness that with the right attitude, the right treatment and the right support, overcoming addiction and living sober can really happen!”
