Several country acts have spent weeks on USO tours overseas, performing for our nation’s military serving abroad. It’s a little slice of the U.S. for some of these troops who miss home.
Toby Keith surpassed his 200th show with the USO this year. It’s his way of showing his love for what they do for him. “They mean everything to me. They show up at my show every night. Their families show up. I represent a piece of American pie for them. It’s way more special than I ever intended or thought it ever could be.”
Craig Morgan remembers being in the audience of USO shows while serving overseas in the Army.“I remember being in Korea and having Sawyer Brown and Charlie Daniels. It was very impacting; it takes away a little bit of aggravation and tension for a few minutes. You get a taste of home, and there’s nothing like that.”
Duo Montgomery Gentry want to continue dedicating their time to the USO. “I just love it more and more every time I go. Me and T we talk about it all the time, every time we go we wanna do more and stay longer. We just don’t thank them enough. When you see our America heroes man, they’re totally awesome.”
