Probably one of the best performances I have had the pleasure of enjoying was at the Grand Ole Opry tonight. For Memorial Day the Opry was celebrating the military. The performers all had patriotic songs to include the Gatlin Brothers, Mark Wills, Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels Band and Trace Adkins. It was brought to a beautiful close with Lee Greenwood's song God Bless the USA.
But the true stars of the show were the MusiCorps Wounded Warrior Band. A double amputee who is normally the drum player was filling in as the singer and really crushed it!! Mark Wills and Trace Adkins came out to complete the last song with them and the whole place was on their feet. It was quite an emotional show and we realized just how much country music supports the military!
