Rockie Lynne, Geoff Bodine will be at Tilley’s H-D on Friday

SALISBURY — Singer-songwriter and U.S. Army veteran Rockie Lynne, a native of Statesville, will be giving a musical dedication Friday at Tilley Harley-Davidson, as part of the Rolling Thunder Flame of Freedom’s arrival in Salisbury.
Free to the public, the event at Tilley’s is from 4 to 7 p.m., and NASCAR driver Geoff Bodine also will be in attendance. The Flame of Freedom, escorted by Rolling Thunder members, is on its way to Washington, D.C., for the Memorial Day weekend and to raise awareness of prisoner-of-war and missing-in-action issues.
Lynne is founder of a national charitable organization, Tribute to the Troops, which is in its 11th year. It has raised more than $300,000 for a college fund designed to provide tuition for children who have lost a parent in active duty.
Lynne, whose father, Fred Rash, lives in Salisbury, often is hired as a live performer for patriotic and military events. His debut single, “Lipstick,” spent 10 consecutive weeks in the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s Country Singles sales chart.
Lynne owns the Nashville, Tenn.-based music publishing company Carolina Blue Sky Music. He has appeared numerous times on national television programs and 14 times on the Grand Ole Opry stage.
Tilley Harley-Davidson is located at 653 Bendix Drive.
