Country Stars on The Grand Ole Opry House Stage

Country Stars Honor Millions of Troops and Families on The Grand Ole Opry House Stage for Holiday Notes From Home TV Special
 
Some of today’s hottest country stars will join members of the Band of the Air Force Reserve along with The Air Force Strings from Washington D.C. to present Holiday Notes From Home—a TV special to air over the Christmas holiday on the Armed Forces Network (AFN). The program is sponsored by the Air Force Reserve Command.
 
Holiday Notes From Home will be broadcast in 177 counties to over 1.7 million people all around the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan along with every military installation overseas and all the ships and submarines at sea. It will also air on Great American Country (GAC).
 
Country hitmakers Little Big Town and Lee Ann Womack took some time out of their busy schedules to join hosts, chart topping country artist, Clay Walker and Great American Country’s (GAC) Nan Kelley, to give something back at this time of year and deliver this heart-felt holiday tribute, produced specifically for the men and women of our military and their families. This show also included a pre-show performance by southern country/rocker Adam Fisher.    
 
This time of year can be especially difficult for our troops—separated from their families during a season that is all about family and tradition.  The show will bring a little bit of “home” to those serving the call of freedom around the world.  Christmas carols, the holiday spirit and the newly restored Opry stage decorated for the holidays will hopefully bring military families closer together and help them experience the magic of the season.
 
“This concert is for all of our troops who are continually deployed overseas, all of their families who are left behind, and for the employers who make such a big difference in those families lives,” said Lt. Gen. Charles E. Stenner, Jr., Chief of the Air Force Reserve. “If we can give just a little back to all those groups of people, I want to do this each year.”

Internationally known artists such as Wynonna and Naomi Judd, Lonestar, Aaron Neville, Amy Grant, Take Six and Sandy Patti have graciously given their talents to entertain the troops overseas with previous Holiday Notes From Home shows. Holiday Notes From Home originally started out as a radio show over ten years ago, but due to it’s immense popularity, the Air Force Reserve Command decided to transition to television to reach a larger audience. To date, the show has entertained millions of American men and women serving the call of freedom abroad. In 2009, the show garnered the first Emmy nomination ever received by a military band. With talents like Little Big Town and Lee Ann Womack, this year’s show is destined for greatness as well.
