Trace Adkins is aligning with the USO for a tribute to a former president and a Thanksgiving tour of U.S. military installations overseas. Adkins and Lee Greenwood will perform Sept. 17 in Washington, D.C. during the USO’s gala honoring former President George Herbert Walker Bush. The black-tie event, which honors a “service member of the year” from each branch of the armed forces, will also feature appearances by Ruth Pointer, Meredith Edwards and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Howie Long. Adkins will also head overseas for a USO tour scheduled for Nov. 26-Dec. 1. Adkins’ itinerary has not been announced. 09/04/02
