Lee Brice Discusses Honoring Veterans Ahead Of Stars and Strings Show

(Radio.com) Tonight, Lee Brice will join an all star lineup of country acts to play a Veteran's Day concert, paying tribute to our veterans and their families. The first CBS Radio Stars and Strings event will feature the biggest names in country music, including Dierks Bentley, Gary Allan, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Little Big Town and the Band Perry.

The stripped-down acoustic show at the Chicago Theatre will see all of the artists perform solo and in various combinations for our nation's heroes and their families.

Brice, who comes from a family of soldiers, tells Radio.com that he is proud to perform: "My great granddaddy was in World War I, my grandaddy was in World War II, my uncle was in Viet Nam. My cousin was in the Navy, for years and years."

He gives credit to anyone who dedicates their career to helping or protecting others, but he says that those who enlist for the military are a special breed. "I have a lot of respect for cops and EMT workers, but they're not away from their home for all that time [as soldiers are]. You have to put yourself in those people's shoes. If you don't, then you're taking them for granted."

This is far from the first time he's played for soldiers, and he says he's always humbled by the experience. "I get almost embarrassed when I play for soldiers and they say, 'Thank you for being here.' Like, all I did was play music. I didn't do anything I don't usually do! If I could play a show and support them in any way, shape or form, or if I can sign some item, I'm glad to do it." Read more here.
