Country Superstars to Play on European Bases

Ah, I love it when musicians show love to military members and their families. Especially when those members are overseas. I remember seeing countless Tops In Blue shows growing up and it was a night I always looked forward to - and the stars were all military personnel who never landed on the Billboard charts.

Today I learned that a favorite group of mine (besides Tops In Blue) will be heading to Europe next month and is taking time to stop at few military bases!

Sugarland (Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush) is a hot item in the country music arena and we've seen them on every awards show in the last few years - performing, attending due to nominations and even taking home a few sweet awards. They just won a Grammy! In the last two years they've seemingly exploded onto the scene and the fan base has swelled.

So to all those stationed in Europe, here's a listing of where they're stopping:

March 6 - Aviano Air Base, Italy (7pm)
March 7 - Naval Air Station Sigonella (9pm)
March 8 - Naval Support Activity Naples (7pm)
March 14 - Ramstein Air Base, Germany (7pm)

As always, the concerts on base are open to all military id card holders and are free. First come, first serve.

I hope that those concerts bring a big smile to all of the attendees faces. Being stationed overseas can make you physically ache for the U.S. and you guys so deserve a piece of home - even if it's in the form of a concert.

Special thanks to Sugarland for giving their time, talent and tunes to the military community stationed in Europe!!! The military community hearts you and "all they want to do-ooo-ooo-oo" is listen to YOU! ;)
