The festivities will kick off at 5:45 with a special red carpet parade honoring the families of enlisted soldiers, and culminate with two Tuesday night Opry performances.

All the evening’s artists have strong connections with America’s military, while Craig is a veteran himself.

"We owe so much to our veterans and to the families of our veterans," the former Army soldier says. "We are all truly grateful for the sacrifices they make for our nation. My fellow artists and I are very excited to head to the Opry that night, shake as many family members’ hands as we can, say thank you, and offer some of our songs in salute.”

Tickets for the 7 p.m. CT show are on sale now, with seats for the 9:30 performance becoming available on Thursday.
