Country music has always been so supportive of our men and women in uniform and many artists perform for our troops all around the world. What you may not know is that many country musicians also served our great country. So to celebrate Veterans Day we salute these country music stars and all Veterans for their service to our country!
We Salute Country Music's Military Veterans!
