CDB In Iraq Right Now

Charlie Daniels (and his full band) is currently traveling abroad to perform for US Troops as part of the Stars for Stripes tour: "We're going over to honor the men and women who protect our way of life. It's the least we can do."

Stars for Stripes is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality entertainment to U.S. military forces deployed to remote locations overseas. Stars for Stripes strives to improve the overseas tour experience not only for the dedicated men and women protecting our national interests, but also for the celebrities, sponsors, and donors participating in these tours. Stars for Stripes, working in conjunction with Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE), USAREUR (United States Army Europe), MWR (Morale Welfare Recreation), and all branches of the U.S. Military regularly takes celebrity entertainment into the remote sites where the troops need the moral boost the most. Entertainers who participate in the tours experience military life first-hand as they live and eat where the troops live and eat, are transported in military vehicles, and perform for the most appreciative audiences they will ever entertain.

FYI - In another bit of evidence that morning TV is trying to steal your at home listening audience, CBS Early Show will broadcast live with Dave Price and Charlie Daniels on April 18th, barring any unforeseen technical difficulties. Additional footage from this tour will be aired during a future segment on the CBS Early Show.

Remember back when a radio station would have been along for the ride too?

Those were the good ole days, when they used to bring these things to you. Now, we have to be more aggressive to get a piece of 'em!
