CBS RADIO’s STARS AND STRINGS is a stripped down acoustic concert celebrating our nation’s military heroes and their families. The show features the biggest names in country music, performing solo and in various combinations, in an intimate showcase of musical talent at The Chicago Theatre during the week of Veteran’s Day.
As a tribute to those who currently serve or have previously served in our armed forces, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Folds of Honor, which provides educational support to spouses and children of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers. There are more than one million dependents adversely affected by military deployments and of that number, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance.
CBS RADIO launched STARS AND STRINGS last year with a concert that featured Dierks Bentley, Gary Allan, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Little Big Town and The Band Perry.
