The free show, which is being presented by the USO, takes place at Iron Horse Park in Ft. Carson, Colo. The festivities kick off at 5 p.m. and are open to the public.
“When we realized we were passing through the area on our way to Salt Lake City, we thought, ‘What a great chance to give Colorado a little taste of what they will be seeing at the Country Throwdown on Sunday,’” says tour producer Kevin Lyman.
“What an absolute honor it is to have these great entertainers perform for our service men and women and their families here at Fort Carson,” says Center Manager of the USO Fort Carson Phil Martinez. “We are grateful and excited to show these amazing entertainers some military hospitality from the best hometown in the Army.”
