The Carter Albrecht Music Foundation is happy to announce the donation of one of Carter’s guitars to the second annual Open Carry Guitar Rally in Dallas. The tobacco burst Fender Stratocaster will be auctioned off leading up to this already legendary event that will take place on the Continental Pedestrian Bridge on May 3, 2015.

The Open Carry Guitar Rally began last year by local musician Barry Kooda (The Nervebreakers) in response to the spate of open carry gun rallies being held across the state of Texas in large public establishments such as Chili’s and Target. The Rally seeks to promote common sense gun control with a great sense of humor.
