McCoy Will Spend Christmas With the Troops

Also headed for an “undisclosed location” to entertain troops overseas is country singer Neal McCoy. He’s part of the USO “Deliver America” tour leaving Wednesday (Dec. 19) on a six-day circuit. Joining McCoy are Wayne Newton, Jessica Simpson, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and Lewis Dix Jr. Part of the funding for the trip comes from Nissan North America through a generous gift from Vince Gill. Gill’s scheduled appearance at a Nissan event was canceled in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. He suggested his fee be used to help the nation respond to the tragedy. 12/19/01
