NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo. (April 27th, 2013) – Despite short notice,
country recording artist and Missouri native Matt Snook found himself
right where he was meant to be on Friday, April 26th – performing for
the 2013 Workers’ Memorial Day Event at The Builders’ Association
Education and Training Center. Singing the Star Spangled Banner and originals Solid Ground and I Got Your Back, it quickly became apparent to Snook that this was no ordinary gig.

“I decided to sing Solid Ground in memory of those killed on the job, and I Got Your Back for
hope and inspiration,” said Snook. “After my performance, I talked to a
gentleman that had lost his brother on the job. He told me hearing Solid Ground brought
him peace… It’s easy to forget the power music can have. Any time I
get to experience the wonderful effect of music I feel blessed. It was
an honor to be a part of this event.”

The event also included speeches by The Builders’ Association’s
President Don Greenwell, OSHA Region VII’s Regional Administrator Chuck
Adkins, and Greater Kansas City AFL-CIO’s President Pat “Duke”

Snook is gearing up for a rigorous summer tour schedule and recently released his latest studio album, Forget, which is now available on iTunes.

About Workers’ Memorial Day:
Workers’ Memorial Day is observed every year on April 28. It is a day to
honor those workers who have died on the job, to acknowledge the
grievous suffering experienced by families and communities, and to
recommit ourselves to the fight for safe and healthful workplaces for
all workers. It is also the day OSHA was established in 1971. Under the
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible
for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their workers. OSHA’s
role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women
by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education
and assistance. To learn more about Workers’ Memorial Day, visit
