Trace Adkins will perform during the National Memorial Day Concert airing on PBS on Sunday, May 24, at 7 p.m. CT.
The concert, which is usually filmed from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., will instead feature performances and tributes filmed throughout the country in accordance with physical distancing guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hosted by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise, the 90-minute special will include performances and appearances by General Colin L. Powell, Cynthia Erivo, Renée Fleming, CeCe Winans, Kelli O’Hara, Christopher Jackson, Mary McCormack, members of the National Symphony Orchestra and more. In addition to honoring troops, veterans, wounded warriors and fallen service members, the National Memorial Day Concert will celebrate the heroes on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The concert also will stream on Facebook, YouTube and pbs.org.
