The Conference opens with a special performance from members of Butterfly on a Bullet which began in 2012 as an initiative founded by producer and guitarist, Will Stratton. Entering his 20th year in the Army after six tours to Afghanistan and Iraq, Will wanted to use the music he created during and between tours as a way to give back to the military. He intended to release one single and wrote the song, "Come Home" with singer-songwriter,
Nicole Eaddy, and guest perfomer Kathryn Eaddy. All proceeds from their first single, "Come Home" will be donated to the USO and Operation Homefront.
