George Strait has always been a strong supporter of the brave men and women who have joined the United States military to fight for our country. Strait served for four years in the United States Army, where he started the U.S. Army endorsed band “Rambling Country”.
Not long ago, Strait gave an extremely rare, intimate performance in Boerne, TX, specifically to raise money for the Wrangler National Patriot Program, designed to benefit wounded warriors.
According to the Examiner, Strait said of his participation, “I am very proud of the folks, the good friends and talented group of musicians, that I am sharing the stage with tonight. We are all here to raise money for the Wounded Warriors through David Feherty’s Troops First Foundation that gives quality help to our brave American wounded soldiers from the Middle East.”
Also playing at the event were fellow country artists, Ray Benson, Asleep at the Wheel, Dean Dillion, Jamey Johnson and more. Former pro golfer and television personality, David Feherty, emceed the event.
The fundraiser was a huge success. Before Strait even took the stage, they’d managed to raised well over half a million dollars. At one point the artists invited wounded warriors onstage while Ray Benson performed “America, the Beautiful.”
