Country music star Scotty McCreery appeared on Fox News on Sunday, where he previewed his Memorial Day eve performance in honor of fallen U.S. soldiers, showering praise upon servicemen and women, alike.
“The freedoms we have in this country are unlike anywhere else and we’ve got the best military out there,” McCreery said. “And the fact that they know the sacrifice they might have to make and are still going out there and fighting for all of us and protecting us — I can’t express my gratefulness to it enough.”
McCreery was in Washington, D.C., to perform his song “The Dash” at the 28th annual PBS National Memorial Day Concert on Sunday evening.
The singer told Fox News that the song’s lyrics focus on a fallen serviceman and offer up an important life lesson: “It’s not about when you’re born or when you die, it’s about your life that you live in between and the impact that you have in between.”
McCreery also shared that the cousin of his bass player lost a husband who was in the military — a personal story that has made an impact on both him and his band.
