Saturday night’s “Walk of Honor” will be Greer’s thank you to all of our favorite sons and daughters and others we remember who served so unselfishly and gallantly to pave the way for the freedoms we enjoy.

Thousands of flags will be distributed for the “Walk of Honor” and the Blue Ridge JROTC will escort the guests to the main stage. Preston Johnson, commander of the DAV Greer Chapter 39, will attend the ceremonies.

Blount is featured on an album “Standing United, Vol. 1” where he joins artists Big & Rich, Tim McGraw, and Nickelback in honoring our troops.

His second album will be released soon. He will sing, “That’s An American” Saturday night during his performance, 5-7 p.m.

Blount will sing the National Anthem a cappella as part of the “Walk of Honor”.

Watch Blount Tuesday at 10 a.m. on Your Carolina on WSPA-TV with Jack Roper and Kimberly Kelly.

Aaron Tippin has been confirmed for Friday’s Your Carolina.
