Scotty McCreery is recognizing the men and women who wear our country’s uniform this Veterans Day.  He posted a video to his song “The Dash” on his YouTube and Facebook page. He says in a message that clip tells the story of Marine Lance Corporal Andrew Carpenter, who was killed in February 2011 during his second tour in Afghanistan. 

Scotty also expresses his appreciation to Andrew’s widow, Crissie, for sharing their story, saying it’s “a great reminder of the sacrifice our military — and their families — make for us.”

Andrew’s death was also a personal loss for a member of Scotty’s band. Scotty’s bassist, Nathan Thomas, is Crissie’s cousin.

Garth Brooks Brings Tears To Stadium

Posted on: November 10th, 2014 by Chris

Garth Brooks has performed thousands of shows, but last Friday night in Minneapolis he gave a performance that he and a woman battling cancer will remember for a long, long time.

During “The Dance,” he saw Teresa Shaw of Osage, Iowa holding a sign that said “Chemo this morning, Garth tonight…Enjoying ‘The Dance.” Garth had her brought her to the front of the stage and knelt to sing to her personally.

After handing her his guitar he took a few steps back and said, “God just stuck his hand out and wrote ‘I exist.’ You have all my strength, you have everybody’s strength in here and you will kick cancer’s a–!”

The Des Moines Register says Teresa has been battling Stage 3 breast cancer since June.

Garth’s new album, ‘Man Against The Machine’ is out tomorrow.
