As anticipation continues to build for the arrival of Gordy’s Hwy 30 Music Fest in Texas next month, SRS Distribution has just been confirmed as the four-day event’s official military sponsor. As one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing building products distributors, the McKinney-based company has long been dedicated to supporting military causes which coincides with Hwy 30’s continued passion for our armed forces.
With a commitment to expand job opportunities for military members, SRS Distribution surpassed its goal of hiring 500 veterans within a five-year period last year, now setting a new marker to employ 1,000 within its roster. Since Hwy 30 Music Fest being held at the nearby Texas Motor Speedway, SRS Distribution’s decision to become its leading military sponsor was a natural fit. The festival, which was founded by veteran Gordy Schroeder, will host a variety of musical superstars, like Zach Bryan, also a veteran, as well as up-and-coming talent on its stage. And keeping with tradition from its longtime presence in Idaho, Hwy 30 will also hold a special Military Appreciation Day to honor all active and retired soldiers.
“With the entrepreneurial spirit of Gordy Schroeder, the event happening right here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and the fact they are owned and operated by veterans of the US Armed Forces, we are excited to partner with Hwy 30 Music Fest,” said Dan Tinker, CEO of SRS Distribution. “The freedom and protection that our military provides is essential to our well-being and allows us the ability to enjoy events just like this. The opportunity to be the official Military Sponsor mirrors our company’s commitment to serving the veteran community as they have served our great nation and to give back in any way that we can.”
“As this is our first year in Texas, we wanted to ensure that we partnered with local companies that hold similar values as Hwy 30,” said Schroeder. “SRS Distribution has gone above and beyond with its support of our military, and we are proud to have them as a leading sponsor of our event.”
Gordy’s Hwy 30 Music Fest will take place Oct. 19-22 and is expected bring in an attendance of 30,000 to 60,000 fans each day throughout the four-day weekend.
