Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A group including mine operators Massey Energy and International Coal Group say country singer Hank Williams Jr. and rock musician Ted Nugent are going to take part in a free Labor Day concert in southern West Virginia.

Organizers say the Sept. 7 concert will be part of what they're calling the Friends of America rally.

The lineup also includes radio personality Sean Hannity.

Ruth Lemmon, president of the West Virginia Automobile & Truck Dealers Association, says the rally is being held to let the nation's leaders know that organizers support American jobs.

Massey chief Don Blankenship says the idea is to make sure that the state's good-paying jobs aren't taxed or regulated out of existence.

The rally is scheduled to be held near holden, in Logan County.
