American Sporting Legend
To millions of music lovers, Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock & roll history
selling more than 40 million albums, performing more than 6,700 high-octane concerts, and
continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe.

To further millions, Nugent is the nation's most outspoken proponent of our 1st and 2nd
Amendment rights, conducting thousands of pro-gun, pro-freedom, pro-America interviews in
major media worldwide. He serves on the Board of Directors of Gun Owners of America and
has served continuously on the Board of Directors of the NRA since his initial election in 1995.
A recipient of myriad commendations from state police, sheriff departments, FBI and police
agencies, Nugent has been lauded for his work with Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Pass It On
Outdoor Mentors Program. He proudly serves as Ambassador for Exodus Place, advancing the
goal of "zero veteran homelessness in Michigan" and works with Operation Finally Home to
provide quality, mortgage-free housing for our wounded and disabled vets. His award-winning Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild television show recently celebrated its 500th episode.
