Hey guys! So, we are extremely excited and honored for the opportunity to go overseas and visit the troops! I have a ton of family who are veterans or are currently serving in the military, as does the rest of the band, and we are always looking for ways to support the we jumped at the chance to go and perform for them in Iraq over Thanksgiving! We will be joined by 6 Hooters girls, which should be a blast - the guys in the band are certainly excited about those little orange shorts and, ya know, the "hooters." So I have to imagine that the men over there who have barely seen a woman in months will be over the moon! I have to admit I feel a little insecure in that poster - totally surrounded by hottie mamas. I'm thinking I'm gonna need to pack the serious push-up bra..... PS - I got much enjoyment from the fact that one of the girls is named "Sara Hoots" - I cannot wait to meet her and find out if that is her real name - and if it is her real name, did it influence her decision to become a Hooters girl? I need to know these things! A friend of mine was a Hooters girl in college and offered me the use of her old uniform - how funny would that be?? If I actually showed up for the first show in the outfit and just acted totally normal? Hmmm.... Anywho, the girls seem great and we're all super excited. I'll be documenting our trip with my camcorder, so make sure to check back here for updates and scoopage, and, of course, plenty of hooters!

Here's the press release for the tour with some extra info:




Nashville-based country group BROKEDOWN CADILLAC have confirmed plans to perform for the troops during a Thanksgiving week tour of military bases in Iraq. The group—founded in California by singer CORRI ENGLISH and guitarist RANDY DUNHAM—will head overseas this week for the tour, which runs from November 21-30 and they will be joined by a select group of Hooters Girls from around the U.S.

English says, “All of us in the band have close ties to the military, and we're excited and honored for this opportunity. We feel like spending Thanksgiving with our troops, who can't be home with their families, is the best way we can say thank you for all that they do. We hope it is the first of many visits.”

“This outstanding group will have a tremendous impact on the military personnel serving our country,” says David Chavez, President of Pro Sports MVP, the tour’s organizer. “The Hooters Girls and BrokeDown Cadillac are very excited to meet the troops in Iraq, and it will be everyone’s first visit to the region. All of the participants have expressed their passion for our troops overseas and are looking forward to a successful tour and once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

BrokeDown Cadillac: BrokeDown Cadillac is a 5-piece modern country band fronted by Atlanta native Corri English and her partner Randy Dunham. Veterans of stage performance, BrokeDown Cadillac’s live show is electrifying. The band--a tight collection of seasoned players--rarely offer people a chance to sit down with their string of upbeat, original material, commandeering fans to the dance floor. Their self-released debut album Somewhere In America was described by Country Weekly as having an “energetic, instantly likeable sound” (6/22/09). Corri and Randy have written over two dozen songs for this project, five of which have recently been used in the 2009 Disney box office hit film, Race to Witch Mountain, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The two, joined by Danny Reuland on drums, Don Ian on lead guitar and Jeff LeGore on bass, were also included in a performance sequence of the movie, playing in a honky-tonk bar. Check them out at:
