A love of country music

A request from the Academy of Country Music for military men and women to perform with some of the genre’s biggest stars was met with tremendous enthusiasm from more than 80 talented singers and musicians across the service. Two Coast Guard members were selected for the ACM’s All-Star Salute to the Troops, which airs May 20 on CBS in celebration of Armed Forces Week.
