The TENNESSEAN is reporting that WARNER BROS./NASHVILLE duo BIG & RICH will perform their song "8th Of NOVEMBER" at the groundbreaking ceremony TOMORROW (7/11) for the 173rd AIRBORNE BRIGADE MEMORIAL, which is adjacent to FORT BENNING in GEORGIA.
The 173rd AIRBORNE BRIGADE lost 48 soldiers during an unexpected attack on NOVEMBER 8, 1965 in VIETNAM. After BIG KENNY and JOHN RICH met 173rd veteran NILES HARRIS in 2002, they wrote a song inspired by the brigade, which was released on BIG & RICH's 2005 album, "Comin' To Your City."
