B&D Invite Military Families to Rehearsal

Brooks & Dunn have invited more than 6,000 people to Thursday’s (April 17) dress rehearsal of their upcoming Neon Circus & Wild West Show. Half of the invitations to the Nashville event were extended to the families of Fort Campbell, Ky., soldiers. Thousands of police officers, firefighters and reservists are also expected to attend with their families. “For those families of the people over there [in Iraq], this is one small way to let them know how much we appreciate the sacrifice they’re making for all of us in this country,” said Ronnie Dunn. “It’s the same thing for the police and firefighters. … Those people put their lives on the line every day to protect the rest of us. Having them come out seems like the least we can do.” The tour officially starts in Green Bay, Wis., on April 25. 04/16/03
