With everyone gearing up for Memorial Day weekend, while dealing with the quarantine…thoughts turn to why we celebrate…Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild with her views on military sacrifice … “It’s such a huge sacrifice what these men and women do for us, not only the ones that are serving, but the families that are left here at home. Kimberly and I met a young girl … she’s 21 years old, and she has a third baby, and her husband has served multiple times overseas. She’s raising these children at home and doing a great job and the best that she can, and he’s serving our country. He’s making a monstrous sacrifice, but so is she, and so are those children. And we just can’t take it for granted. I mean, it’s just a huge commitment that they make, and what an honor. We love to be able to sing for them and entertain them and to say thank you whenever we can”
Tim McGraw is a proud American because of our troops “We get to do a lot of things in this country. We have a lot of freedoms, and no matter ups and downs, or good or bad or whatever, it’s still the best country in the world to live in. It’s only that way because we have these guys that are out there looking out for us. It doesn’t matter what your politics are. It doesn’t matter what your religion is or any of those things. If you’re an American, you’re proud to have those guys out there, and they sacrifice quite a bit. They sacrifice everything. We just need to vocalize that as much as possible”
Actor/Comedian Kevin Hart, has a new baby girl on the way. The whole family is very excited. Kevin is ready for more noise and yelling in his house. He tried to camp in a tent with his kids in the yard. They didn’t make it through the night. They made it till about 1am…before his kids got bored Kevin tried to explain that “That’s the point, stay outside in the tent and sleep” But, Kevin was actually happy to get into his bed.
