Strait to Perform Free Concert for Troops

George Strait will headline a June 19 concert at Fort Campbell, Ky., as part of the Army post’s Week of the Eagles celebration. The show for the 101st Airborne Division’s soldiers and their families will also feature Vince Gill, Lane Brody, Richard Marx, Collin Ray and Dobie Gray, all of whom are donating their time to the event. Many of Fort Campbell’s soldiers recently returned home after participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Fort Campbell officials anticipate a crowd of 20,000 to 40,000 to attend the private concert. Strait was stationed in Hawaii during his stint in the Army.
