Chris Young is preparing to make his second visit to entertain U.S. troops stationed overseas, as part of the Stars For Stripes tour. Chris will embark on the “PIECE OF HOME” tour, performing for service members stationed in Iraq and Kuwait, April 13 through April 21.
Chris and his full band will perform five concerts at five camps throughout Iraq and Kuwait. He will also offer special acoustic sets at various remote FOBs (Forward Operating Base) for troops who seldom receive celebrity entertainment.
But Chris is not going empty-handed. With the help of his fans, he has been collecting iTunes gift cards and will be distributing them to service members along the way.
This will be Chris’ second tour to the area and his first performance in Kuwait. His initial tour was in October 2009, where he traveled with Craig Morgan, two wounded heroes, Staff Sergeant Scott Lilley and Sergeant First Class Joe Bowser, and GAC’s Nan Kelley. The visit was chronicled by GAC and is a television special titled Stars for Stripes – Wounded Warriors Return. Check out the photo gallery from that trip HERE.
In addition to entertaining troops overseas, Chris serves as a member of the Board Of Directors for Stars For Stripes.
