Stars Head Overseas for Troops

Craig Morgan, Chris Young, and GAC host Nan Kelley are joining forces with Stars for Stripes, GAC and Armed Forces Entertainment to entertain U.S. troops overseas.

The Stars for Stripes tour will visit military bases and hospitals in Iraq and Germany in October for a series of acoustic concerts. Nan Kelley will serve as guest emcee at each tour stop. "This will be my sixth trip to entertain and visit with the men and women of the Armed Forces," says Craig, who was the first artist to perform on a Stars For Stripes/AFE event in 2003. "I know firsthand what it's like to be deployed overseas away from your loved ones, and it's an honor to be able to take a little piece of home to them with this tour." Chris adds, "I have such respect for the men and women of our Armed Forces, and I am very excited to get the opportunity to go visit the troops in Iraq and Germany. I want to tell people back home how they're doing, and I hope I'm able to bring a little bit of 'home' to the troops." The artists and crew will leave for Iraq on Oct. 25.
