USO Honors Trace Adkins, Nashville's Eggstravaganzoo

More than 30,000 plastic Easter eggs were hidden in the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere at the 9th annual Eggstravaganzoo's Festival Field today (4/7) and about 8,000 guests showed up to hunt for Easter eggs.

The 2007 USO Merit Award was presented to Country singer TRACE ADKINS on March 27, 2007 in Arlington, VA. On behalf of the USO, TRACE has traveled into combat zones many times to sing for our troops and sign autographs. ADKINS related, Whatever I do to show support to our troops is so small by comparison to what these men and women do for us. Previous Award beneficiaries include STEVEN SPIELBERG, ELIZABETH TAYLOR, WILLIE NELSON and BOB HOPE.
