This energetic dynamic duo is kicking off 2011 in rollicking fashion. On Jan 21st they played the Grand Ole Opry; their first visit back since Eddies successful prostate cancer surgery, which he has been given a clean bill of health from, then they leave Sunday the 23rd for an eight day USO/Armed Forces Entertainment Tour.
From a statement on the duo's website Troy Gentry adds, "We couldn't be more excited to start our year with a visit to the Opry and this USO trip to entertain our troops. We understand on a much smaller level what it is like to be away from our families and our homes. If we can bring a little bit of home to our heroes serving overseas, then we're all for it." They will bring their music to Seoul, Korea then on to Okinawa. Here in a picture courtesy of Crook & Chase, the duo is rehearsing for their tour. Like the beard Troy is sporting; getting ready for the cold weather.
These boys are not "newbies" to our military. They are proud to be part of the Wounded Warrior Project & have embarked on many previous USO Tours. Here is a wonderful point of recognition from the USO: http://www.usa-patriotism.com/stars/mg.htm
Safe journey from all of us and a big thanks for all you do to bring a bit of home to our troops.
