Black Entertaining Troops Overseas

Following his performance at Sunday’s (Oct. 21) Country Freedom Concert in Nashville, Clint Black boarded a plane to begin a tour of U.S. bases abroad. “We’re going to do several shows before I have to be in Las Vegas Friday (Oct. 26) for a show,” Black told The country star is part of the Citizen Patriot Tour, which was organized by former Defense Secretary William Cohen’s wife Janet Langhart Cohen. Taylor Dayne and others are on the tour, details of which were not being released for security reasons. Black, who left his family behind, feels he is in safe hands. “I don’t think I could feel more safe than when I’m surrounded by our troops,” he said. “I have a great deal of love and admiration for them. Even if you’re not in combat, the life that our troops lead overseas on military bases is not an easy life. So, we want to just give a little care package to them.” 10/22/01
