Big & Rich To Perform at Memorial Day Concert

Proving once again that they can do solace and respect just as well as they can do spectacle and raucousness, Big & Rich are performing at tonight’s National Memorial Day Concert in Washington, D.C. Fresh off their appearance at the Rally to End Genocide in Darfur, the country duo will sing their uncontroversial but emotional Vietnam War song, “8th of November”, at tonight’s concert. “8th of November” presents the story of Big & Rich’s buddy Niles Harris, who is a survivor of a massive ambush by the North Vietnamese Army.

The concert, which also features country darling Lee Ann Womack, begins at 8 p.m. Eastern. It appears that it is airing tape-delayed at 8 p.m. on the West Coast as well. Check your local listings.
