Country artists may just be the most patriotic out of any genre of music. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that if we were to put together a list of every country song that pays tribute to the military, that we’d have a never ending playlist. With tomorrow being Memorial Day in the United States, we wanted to put together a list of country songs that can help fans remember what this holiday is all about. From artists that perform for USO troops serving overseas, to artists who have hit singles with a remembrance theme, we put together our list for a 2013 memorial day playlist. Our picks aren’t in order.
Check out our picks below and let us know what songs you’ll be listening to for the rest of the weekend.
Originally released in November 2003 as a single from his album “Shock’n Y’all.” The song was a co-write by Toby with Chuck Cannon and became a number one hit on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs Chart for four weeks. It was inspired by the times Toby had met USO troops serving overseas, and he wanted to find a way to show his support for them and their families. The video was directed by Michael Salomon and filmed at an actual US Air Force Base in Edwards, California with off-duty soldiers, reservists and their families.
Show Dog Universal’s Trace Adkins has been named the Honorary Grand Marshall of the Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. The Celebrity Apprentice winner will be part of the national celebration, which will air LIVE on multiple channels across the United States. The Parade starts at 2 pm EST on Monday, May 27th, 2013.
Trace was recently awarded the Crystal Cross from the American Red Cross for his fundraising for the organization during his time on the Celebrity Apprentice. By winning the reality competition, his charity of choice, which is the American Red Cross, was given $250,000 in addition to $700,000 he won throughout the show’s activities and competitions. He was given the award on Sunday night.
Trace Adkins is the first All-Star Celebrity Apprentice winner!
The live finale aired last night on NBC, and Donald Trump chose Adkins over Penn Jillette for the title after several weeks of competition.
The country star raised $1,554,072 for the American Red Cross, while the Vegas super magician raised $598,655 for Opportunity Village. Adkins now adds $250,000 to that total for being crowned the winner.
The celebrity apprentice is always fun to watch, but more importantly, the stars are all playing for charity and that’s what makes it great!

This year’s theme will be “Rebels and Renegades, the Outlaws are IN”. The past three benefit concerts have raised a collective $1.5 million, which is directed toward the Museum’s operating expenses, caring for the collection, exhibitions, programs, and more.
Museum board president Vince Gill created All for the Hall, an artist-led fundraising initiative for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Funds raised from the concert also go toward preservation efforts, exhibitions and educational programs about the culture and value of country music.
“The purity in making music on your own terms – to create art in your own way – for me, is at the heart of the outlaw spirit,” said Urban. “It’s those outlaws that we celebrate this year, who not only made it possible for a guy like me to do what I love, but who play a pivotal role in the strength of Country music’s diversity.”
Tickets will go on sale on March1st at 10AM CST. For ticket and VIP package information, visit Ticketmaster.com.
It’s almost that time of year! Trace Adkins will be one of many performers appearing in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The 86th annual Parade will kick-off the holiday season on November 22nd at 9AM throughout the streets of Manhattan.

Stirrin’ Up Sweet Sensations, the new Domino Sugar float, features a magical take on holiday baking. The centerpiece of this 26-foot tall float is the giant cookie dough bowl and cookie press that dishes out confections. Three stories above the ground a giant spoon stirs the cookie dough in an equally colossal bowl. As it travels into the cookie press, the dough drops onto the turntable and finally into the oven. The treats will be shot down a ramp to the awaiting cars of the Cookie Express train which will deliver the cookies to the children in the streets. Trace is set to add his down home flavor to the mix.
The Parade will air nationwide on NBC from 9AM-noon.
