COUNTRY STARS PREPARE FOR 9-11 ANNIVERSARY
Last year, on September 12, country stars gathered in Nashville's Centennial Park to hold a candlelight vigil in remembrance of those lost in the terror attacks of September 11.
This year, on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy, the stars will come out again.
Centennial Park will once again be the venue for stars and fans to come together in a show of support and patriotism. Phil Vassar and Lonestar are scheduled to perform, and Martina McBride will sing the national anthem as she did during last year's event.
"I was anxious to try and help bring comfort to people that day," says Martina. "And I'd have been there even if they didn't ask me to sing. I thought it was especially important for my oldest daughter, who really had no idea about what being an American was really all about until then. I felt it was good for her to see that we as a nation pull together in times of crisis."
