Joe Nichols performed “The Shape I’m In” at a USO dinner near Washington, D.C., earlier this week to honor individuals from each branch of military service. Presented by the USO of Metropolitan Washington, the dinner raised more than $572,000 for the organization. Nichols was invited to attend and perform at the event after Elaine B. Rogers, president of the USO of Metropolitan Washington, saw the music video for “The Shape I’m In” and felt its portrayal of military personnel “truly represents who we serve.” Nichols said, “Getting to spend time with those honored by the USO as well as other military folks attending the dinner was truly one of the most humbling and important evenings I have ever been a part of.” … In related news, Nichols has teamed with Billy Bob’s Texas to assist victims of the tsunami and earthquake in Japan. General admission wristbands will be sold for his Saturday (April 16) performance at the venue in Fort Worth, Texas. Proceeds from sales of the wristbands will go to the Red Cross.
