Easton Corbin has been rubbing shoulders with some pretty special folks lately.

The “Lovin’ You Is Fun” singer was recently invited to the star-packed grand opening gala for the New Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield, MO. As for those special folks: Bass Pro Shops Founder Johnny Morris, former Presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter, Kevin Coster, Bill Dance, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and President Theodore Roosevelt’s great great grandson Simon Roosevelt were all on the guest list.

Easton was star-struck, sure, but it’s the nature of the museum that garnered most of his attention. “My favorite place to be is outside enjoying nature and I have a passion for wildlife and nature conservation,” he says through his publicist. “I love what Bass Pro Shops and Johnny Morris does to support wildlife conservation and I’m just happy to have been invited to participate in the opening of this Museum that will also help educate people and give them a little peek at the beauty of the great outdoors.”

A live televised concert featured Corbin, Costner, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, John Anderson, Chris Janson, Tracy Byrd and Craig Morgan. Learn more about the museum here.
