This 4th of July, remembering the soldiers who’ve fought for America’s freedom is especially important to Chris Young. Like REAL important.

“You know, I’ve got a lot of connection to the military in my family,” he says. “My brother-in-law is still in the Marine Corps. My sister was a Marine. So, it’s important to me, and it’s something that for sure, I, one, take a lot of pride in trying to do that as much as possible. But two, it’s something that is always fun for me to be able to go over there and play and just say thanks.”

Chris is a huge military advocate and has taken his music to Iraq, Germany, Kuwait, Japan and South Korea, bringing “a piece of home to military.”

He praises the members of those special military shows in a big way saying, “People are just so gracious. It’s like, ‘No, no, we’re over here to thank you guys.’ And it’s probably the most gracious crowd that you’ll ever be in front of.”

Keep doing what you’re doing Chris! Big thumbs up fromm this gal!
