Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser Offer Postcards for USO During CMT on Tour
October 22, 2009
Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser have partnered with CMT One Country to support the USO (United Service Organizations) during CMT on Tour. At each concert, fans may fill out a postcard thanking the troops for their service and making their own pledge of community volunteering. After the tour concludes, memorabilia from Johnson and Houser will go up on CMTauctions.com with proceeds benefiting the USO. "Those guys in the field need some emotional connection to home, and I think this project will bring a little bit of home to them," said Johnson. "Regardless what your political beliefs are about the war, you have to respect the fact that another human being in your country is willing to give their life for your freedom." Houser adds, "Any way that we, as entertainers, can provide comic relief, music relief or any kind of support to our troops is worth making because of the effort they make for us every day."
