Jelly Roll, Tanya Tucker, Dennis Quaid, Ian Munsick and The Frontmen are among the artists who performed on the one-night-only Country Music Salutes America's Heroes special honoring first responders and Gold Star families. The special, taped outside of iconic Honky Tonk Billy Bob's Texas, will air in various markets across the country beginning this Memorial Day weekend.
During the taping, Tunnel to Towers surprised a Gold Star family with a mortgage free home. The family of fallen Army Captain Torre Mallard Sr. was presented the life changing news by Tunnel to Towers CEO, Frank Siller and Dennis Quaid in front of the thousands in attendance, largely first responders, active military and veterans.
Special appearances throughout the evening include 3x Super Bowl Champions Chad Hennings and Darren Woodson as well as Scotty Hasting, Kylie Frey and Mikayla Lane.
