I’m so proud to be able to play country music every day, not only because of what the music itself says but because of those that sing it, as well.  People like Brantley Gilbert, who was at Arlington National Cemetery this morning to take part in a special Memorial Day ceremony to honor our fallen soldiers.  Brantley was there in support of the Folds of Honor Foundation which supports the families of those who’ve lost loved ones in battle.  Brantley is also involved with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, supporting soldiers returning from the Middle East.  He explains that involvement:

As President Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”  These country stars and countless others are doing a lot.  God bless those who have served, continue to serve, or have paid the ultimate sacrifice for us.  There’s no way we could ever thank you enough.
