Grammy-winning Artist Lee Greenwood is set to celebrate Memorial Day with a host of special appearances and performances from May 22nd thru May 27th.
On Tuesday, May 22nd Greenwood took part in a special “Salute The Troops” night at the Grand Ole Opry with two performances. The Tennessee National Guard Family Programs Organization and the USO invited men and women of the U.S. military as well as spouses, children, and parents of soldiers serving overseas to walk on the red carpet into the Opry House for the evening’s shows as they salute the troops and the families they leave at home to serve the United States. The public was also invited to be part of the honored families’ red carpet arrivals outside the Opry House and the evening’s Opry performances . Among the other artists who performed were Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, and more.
During the Navy’s annual #fleetweek celebrations in New York City, Greenwood will perform for the The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s annual Salute to Freedom gala Thursday, May 24th.
On Friday, Greenwood kicks off the Fox & Friends Summer Concert Series from the flight deck of the aircraft carrier Intrepid from 6-9 am ET (check your local listings for details).
Wrapping up the Memorial Holiday weekend on May 27th, Greenwood will perform “God Bless the U.S.A” at Charlotte Motor Speedway during NASCAR’S Coca-Cola 600. This year’s awe-inspiring pre-race salute to the troops also includes ground exhibitions and a 20-minute performance by the 82nd Airborne division that is sure to get fans on their feet prior to the race.
