Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Kid Rock and nearly two dozen other country music luminaries turned out for the Country Thunder music festival. But center stage wasn't the only place drawing a crowd. Over the three and a half days of the festival, the COPD tent was buzzing. More than 7,000 people stopped by for information and close to 600 were screened for COPD with a spirometry test.

So did the Gibson Tour Bus. And many, many volunteers.

Thousands stopped by check out the Gibson Guitar Tour Bus and enter for their chance to win an acoustic Gibson guitar courtesy of this campaign supporter. We send out our special thanks to Gibson, as well as to the COPD Foundation, American Lung Association in Arizona, and the many volunteer respiratory therapists and students who helped to make this event a success.
