    Very nice! I loved that Carrie went to Iraq and also did that show for the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. She also did that show in Kentucky for the troops at Fort Campbell with Hank Jr.

    Here is a story I've posted a view times but maybe there's someone that hasn't seen it yet.... It fits perfectly in this thread and makes me so proud of our girl!!!!!!!!



    It was 1 week before Christmas in 2006 and my Nephew was stationed outside of Bagdad Iraq..... Word came down that in 2 hours an AMERICAN IDOL winner was gonna perform for all the troops that could make it..... There couldnt be any advance warning for obvious security reasons.... My Nephew thought he was gonna get to see his favorite Kelly Clarkson so he was very excited..... Well it wasnt Kelly it was someone he barely heard of and worse then that it was a COUNTRY singer...... Well to make a long story short she rocked the house..... He couldnt believe she did SWEET CHILD OF MINE better then GUNS AND ROSES.... Then for an encore she did JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL and there wasnt a dry eye in the house... They gave her a standing ovation for along time... But heres the best part.......
    She stayed and signed a autograph for anyone that wanted one.... 2 hours later it was my Nephews turn.... He took off his helmet and handed it to her to sign and said Can i have your autogragh? And she said I SHOULD BE ASKING YOU FOR YOURS!!!!!!!
    He still has the helmet and he is a fan for life and so am i(!)
