Empowering a Different Kind of Hero Through Music

One of the most rewarding things we have had the opportunity to do with the NYCountry Swag brand is create a line of products that directly supports our heroes. Originally inspired by the men and women of the Fire, Police and Military Departments, The Hero Collection allows us to help make a small difference, not only by enabling fans and artists to wear the gear to show support, but also by donating a portion of all sales to different charities and foundations that assist our heroes across the country.

We love being able to use our platform to raise awareness and spotlight different organizations for our every day heroes.

As October comes to an end, we think it is important to reflect on the importance of this month. That’s why in honor of it being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our Hero Collection is devoted to a different type of hero, women (and men) who are battling for their lives or survivors of this terrible disease.

We’ve created a special limited edition collection of pink line themed products and will be donating a portion of all sales from each purchase to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To learn more and shop the collection, click here.
