8/23/2013 – SOUTHWEST ASIA — Shaking it up at the Grand Slam Wing, Maggie Rose and band put on a show-stopping performance for deployed service members here Aug. 20.

“It’s such an honor to be able to come out here and entertain our service members,” said country music singer, Maggie Rose. “Our short little flight out here pales in comparison to the sacrifices you all make by being here away from your family and friends.”

Rose began her career in 2009 when she signed with Universal Republic and released a cover of Kings of Leon’s 2008 single “Use Somebody.” She has since awed audiences worldwide and continues showing her support for America’s men and women in uniform.

“Walter Reed [National Military Medical Center] was basically in my backyard growing up, so I have a huge appreciation for the sacrifices you all make,” she said. “We’re just super thankful for everything you do to keep us safe.”
