Toby Keith's Courtesy Of The Red White And Blue video, a tribute to our military, past and present.


And here is another one of his, American Soldier

(Plays in Windows Media Player; www.cmt.com has realplayer options at their site).

This may be posted, but I came across it looking into info on Alan Jackson's "Let It Be Christmas" special airing on Country Music Television (Hope this hasn't been posted, wanted to share this,hope it's alright...).

I'm not a hugh Country Music fan, but the spirit of pride in America, patriotism and God runs in the theme of many of these musicians
(Dixie Chicks are 1) not country and 2) not musicians)

Also, might check out Alan Jackson's special on CMT. It aired tonight and airs twice on Dec 24. Real nice, he sings traditional Christmas songs with heart and respect, the way they were meant to be. I was impressed. he ended the show with one he wrote (he talks during interviews between songs) which you can view here

Both these videos are on Windows Media Player; www.CMT.com has the option to view them in RealPlayer, too.

Well, while we're at it, here is Billy Ray Cyrus' "Some Gave All" (opens in RealPlayer). There is also a thread about his special tribute to veterans from his TV show "Doc: Some Gave All" on FR. Worth the watching, IMO.

"We'll put a boot in your ass. It's the American way!"

Sums things up quite nicely. BTW,I noticed we haven't heard a peep out of that sawed-off little whack job in North Korea lately.

There is another song on his Unleashed Album (the one with Courtesy of the Red White and Blue) called Beer for My Horses that the guys over in Iraq seem to really love. When you listen to the words it sounds like Toby wrote it for Iraq even though the album came out long before we even thought about Iraq. It's terrific

Apparently I must have missed a few upgrades because the WMP I was trying to use to open the file was 6.4 and the latest is up to 9.0.

After downloading the latest version of WMP, it worked fine.

Thanks!

Glad it worked. I have to play .rm files in Real, and also have quicktime on my pc. Haven't had a bit of trouble with them on my PC, not like a few years ago, where they'd always crash my system :(

works good now tho :)

Beer For My Horses (windows media player)

Thanks for posting that one!

I can't wait for some enterprising patriot (and bender of copyright) to make a
video montage of the Iraq theater including shots of some of our men capturing Saddam.

Of course, that would be violation of the Geneva Convention, holding a prisoner
up as a public curiosity...
but let those weasels in Geneva just try and do somethin' about it.

Toby Keith's Courtesy Of The Red White And Blue video, a tribute to our military, past and present.

"Toby Keith -- Live At Saddam's Palace"

Someday, that's gonna' be one heck of a live album.

(OK, it won't happen, probably wisely so, because of political considerations.
But I can dream!)

Well, while we're at it, here is Billy Ray Cyrus' "Some Gave All" (opens in RealPlayer).

I've been informed by one of our freepers that visited at the Walter Reed Army
Medical Center that Billy Ray had played that signature song
in one of the wards...just Billy Ray and his guitar.

I've only heard this once, but I've heard that his series "Doc" routinely
pulls more viewers than what's playing any of the other three "major" networks.

Also the Iranians have said, yea, you (UN) can come in here unannounced any time you want to. Why??? Because saddam is now in jail. The wimp in NK also sees this and is scared. Powerful stuff for the perps.

I suspect that even Dubya would be asking Mr. Keith to hold off on that idea...
until things are really settled down in Iraq and more of our guys and gals are home.

We want to get a bit more solid with our new Iraqi friends so they'd understand that
such a video would be about a well-placed boot for a dictator...not seen as
bravado in defeating the beleagured Iraqi grunt.

But like I said in another post...I can dream!

When Toby Keith was about to record "Beer For My Horses", he asked Willie Nelson if he'd sing on "a" new song of his. Willie said "Maybe, send it over and I'll think about it". Toby said he would and then Willie asked what the name of the song was. When Toby told him it was "Whiskey For My Men, Beer For My Horses", Willie said "You don't have to send it over, I'll sing on THAT one".

There's another AWESOME song -- I've forgotten the artists name -- but it's called "Tough Little Boys" and throughout the whole video they show soldiers looking a pictures of their little girls. Then at the end, the soldiers step off their plane and run to their daughters. I BAWL everytime I see it. Makes me think of my bro coming home to his little girl. Maybe someone could post it to this thread?? I'm pinging a couple of musical FRiends here!

First, I have to disagree. The Dixie Chicks are (or were, at least before they excommunicated themselves) country AND great musicians. Second, I'll never buy another thing they put out. I vote with my dollars and they suck, patriotically speaking. Third, check out Toby's "Shock 'N Y'all" CD. The cut "American Soldier" is very inspiring to me.

Now I have the siffles. Tay pictured below is now four. She cried for twenty minutes straght after seeing her dad off from a two week R&R. This baby would start crying several minutes before dad was due home from work while he was stationed at Polk. She had her afternoon cuddle timed to the hour.

"Toby Keith -- Live At Saddam's Palace"

Would love to see this. Sometimes I'm a little dense and it takes a while for something to connect. Everyone else has probably noticed the similarity of names - Toby's latest cd "Shockin Y'All" and the "Shock and Awe" of the war in Iraq? Little play on words here?

not all are Travis. 3 Doors down's song and video "when I'm gone" was inspired by playing on the ships, and talking to the troops while touring the region. These guys have done alot fot the troops. I wish I still had the link for their video, from the VH-1 site. It's another video that makes ya misty eyed!

And now Libia's worm Momar Kadaffi (sp) has bit the bullet, these twerps are scared that they are next. However we need to get Bushar of Syria next, he has the golden surprise of the WMD burried in his waistlands. Let us in, we will dig for WMD
