Greenwood sings at Alamo Bowl

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 – Lee Greenwood will participate in a tribute to 60 of San Antonio's fallen military heroes when he performs the National Anthem and God Bless the USA at the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio on Dec. 29.

The Valero Alamo Bowl will feature the Washington Huskies and the Baylor Bears.

A long-time supporter of our troops and their families, Greenwood's pre-game performance will honor those military heroes from the San Antonio area who died during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past 10 years. Members of Lackland Air Force Base 37th Training Wing will unfurl the full field American flag as Greenwood sings God Bless the USA. The evening will be especially meaningful for 2011 Valero Bowl Chairman and Spurs team physician, Dr. David Schmidt, whose son recently lost his life while serving in the Marines.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music.
