The Georgia native says the 4-H state performing arts program was instrumental in helping her develop her own skills on stage. Nettles, who earned the title of Master 4-H’er, the highest award offered by 4-H, for her performing arts talents, also served as a 4-H camp counselor and as a district and state 4-H officer.

“I credit 4-H with not only life skills but, definitely, in Clovers and Company, the skills of performing, the amount of time I got to perform, performing in an ensemble, being able to perform with different voices and really learn about being on the stage in a different way than I ever had,” Nettles says. “I’m thrilled to celebrate this incredibly diverse program that continues to shape the lives of thousands of young people in this state and abroad.”

The event to benefit Georgia 4-H takes place August 8th, 2015 at the Loews Atlanta Hotel.

The 90’s country singer revealed the news to People magazine saying he finally felt the need to reveal the truth.

“During an Anthony Robbins seminar, I realized I had an incredible story that could possibly help someone’s son or daughter or grandchild’s life not be as difficult as mine has been,” he told People.“ Maybe they wouldn’t have to go through as much pain and suffering. It’s time to tell my truth. I’m an out, proud and happy gay man.”

Herndon, 52, says he first felt he may be gay at age 10, and then came out officially to family members at age 20.

Some of his biggest hits include, ‘What Mattered Most,’ and ‘It Must Be Love.’
