Country Music Star Gilbert Plans for First USO Tour
Thursday, March 14, 2013
Country music artist Brantley Gilbert is preparing to extend America’s thanks to troops and military families in the Middle East and Italy during his first USO tour. As part of his tour, Gilbert is scheduled to perform four USO concerts and participate in several meet-and-greet sessions.
(For security reasons, the specific countries and dates cannot be released in advance for the USO tour stops.)
In addition to those troops and families he will reach as part of his tour, Gilbert has planned a special treat for military families who attend his two upcoming commercial concerts in the UK. Military ID holders who attend his March 15th show in Glasgow at Oran Mor or his March 16th show in Manchester at Club Academy will have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive meet-and-greet with the country music star.
Owner of four No. 1 singles, the reigning ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year is thrilled to take part in this special trip for the troops.
“I’ve always had a huge amount of respect for our troops,” Gilbert said. “Knowing that I will be performing for our servicemen and women and their families is something that really excites me and one of the things I am most looking forward to on my upcoming USO tour.”
