ARLINGTON, VA. (July 28, 2011) - Legendary country music duo and USO tour veterans Montgomery Gentry delivered a foot-stomping USO concert at Louisville, Kentucky's KFC Yum! Center, July 26, 2011. The concert coincided with the National Guard's National Volunteer Workshop and Youth Symposium, which began on July 25, and honored troops, military families and volunteers who support them.
Attributed to Eddie Montgomery:
"Troy and I both grew up in Kentucky and being able to put on a USO concert here at home is such an honor, and something that we will never forget. We've performed around the world for troops but there is nothing better than coming home and celebrating with our heroes who defend our country. "
Attributed to Troy Gentry:
"Eddie and I have been traveling on USO tours for 5 years and I couldn't be prouder to put on a USO concert here in Kentucky, the place where it all began for us and to say 'thank you' to the men and women who make it all possible, our U.S. armed forces."
Attributed to USO President Sloan Gibson:
"This year the USO celebrates 70 years of service to our troops and their families. It's a milestone that we are proud to celebrate, especially times like these when we are able to partner with the National Guard and friends like Montgomery Gentry to create memorable and lasting moments. We are extremely grateful to them for supporting our mission of lifting the spirits of our U.S. armed forces and their families."
