Country music star Brad Paisley will headline the USO's Fourth of July concert on the South Lawn of the White House tomorrow night.
The first family is hosting members of the military and their families for the "Salute to the Military" concert. Paisley will perform in addition to the United States Marine Corps band, also known as "The President's Own". The event will also include games, a barbecue, and prime seats to watch the fireworks over the Washington Monument.
“The Fourth of July has always been about family, freedom and celebration,” Paisley said in a statement released by the USO. “I am so honored to be spending my holiday performing a USO concert for our troops and their families and to be celebrating those freedoms with the men and women who put everything on the line to defend them.”
According to the USO, more than 1200 troops and their families will attend the festivities.
