4TROOPS share their music, experiences at concert
Sharing their love of music as well as their experience of serving on
the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan, nationally known recording group
4TROOPS entertained fans Monday evening inside Cowley College’s
Robert Brown Theatre.
The group 4TROOPS is made up of United States combat veterans - three young men and one woman. While overseas, music played a crucial and very personal role in all of their lives.
4TROOPS now come together for a singular purpose: to sing on behalf of all troops, to honor their sacrifices and to create awareness for their needs.
They opened Monday’s concert by singing Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue by Toby Keith and had the crowd clapping and singing along throughout the evening.
“Knowing the 4Troops served on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan and now spend their lives spreading their love for our country through music is very special,” Shannon Massey, executive director of alumni and development said. “I thought it was a great evening, I hope everyone enjoyed it.”
4TROOPS’ nationalist appeal and country and western related music themes have led to several nationally televised appearances. The group's first CD, also titled 4TROOPS, stayed on the Billboard 200 charts for 6 weeks, peaking at 36th position.
