Toby Keith has always been one of our military's biggest supporters. He has gone to all ends of the earth to entertain our troops. I have so much respect for him for that. He has ended up in some sticky situations sitting with our troops. This is one dude who really does walk the walk. It was 10 years ago today that his tribute to our men and women in uniform, "American Soldier" hit number one.

There have been many songs in country music's history that celebrate the sacrifice our soldiers make. From Merle Haggard's "Fighting Side of Me" to Billy Ray Cyrus "Some Gave All" we have a history of great tributes. I have included several of my favorites. Try to watch Carrie Underwood sing "Just A Dream", Radney Foster do "Angel Flight" or hear the Statler's sing "More Than A Name On A Wall" and not tear up. Listen and be grateful for those who defend the red, white and blue.
