Carrie Underwood, John Rich, Rodney Atkins and Jake Owen will perform Aug. 14-15 as part of nearby Ft. Campbell’s Week of the Eagles to welcome home troops from overseas deployment. The free event, celebrating the homecoming of the 101st Airborne Division “Screaming Eagles,” is open to the public.

Week of the Eagles is held every other year and is usually planned by the Fort Campbell staff, but radio broadcaster Cumulus upped the ante this year by arranging for the superstar performers.

The entire celebration runs Aug. 14-20, with the concerts kicking off the party on Aug. 14-15. Other events include a 10K/5K run, an air show, and a Vietnam veteran tribute.
