CBS RADIO present "STARS AND STRINGS," an acoustic country music benefit designed to celebrate and salute America’s veterans on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11 at The Chicago Theatre. Imagine today’s biggest country stars on stage, individually and collectively, performing their many hits to a special crowd of fans and veterans. Stars and Strings performers include Dierks Bentley, Gary Allan, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Little Big Town and The Band Perry.
The event will benefit Folds of Honor, a non-profit dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen or wounded soldiers.
Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Since 2007, the Folds of Honor has carried forth the singular mission of leaving no family behind.
