For the third time in a row, Young will join legendary anglers and NBC Sports Outdoors’ The legends, Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, and Bill Dance. In a press release, Young explained his motives behind his support.

“My dad fought cancer and won. I can’t think of any better way to give back to an organization that helps find cures for cancer than to spend the day sitting in a boat fishing with my old man.”

The Cast for a Cure Big Bass Tournament

The Legends Cast for a Cure Big Bass Tournament was created by legendary music manager and T.J. Martell board member, Doc McGhee. McGhee has supported the foundation for more than 35 years.

“The T.J. Martell Foundation is very near and dear to my heart,” says McGhee in a press release. “Throughout the years they have made gigantic strides in the fight against cancer. Bringing together musical artists and other celebrities who give unselfishly of their time and resources helps give the foundation an additional platform to spread the word of what our core mission is.”

Fans can register here for the tournament. It is open for both professionals and hobbyists. The tournament will be on the 1st of June and it will just be outside Nashville.

But for guests who wish to attend without joining the tournament, the Party in The Park event is free and open to the public. The viewing party will kick-off at 10 AM that same morning. Festivities will include live music, silent auction, family-friendly activities, photo opportunities and more.
