Nashville, TN (November 15, 2010) – Later today, the members of the multi award winning country group Ricochet will travel to our nation’s capitol to perform at the 2010 JINSA Awards. Ricochet will open the festivities in the main hall of The Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center with our national anthem. Then, following the honoring of six young active service members who will each receive the Grateful Nation Award for their outstanding conduct in the War on Terrorism and the presentation of the Henry M. Jackson Distinguished Service Award to this year’s recipient, Sen. Jon Kyle of Arizona, the band will return to the stage.
Following the event, Ricochet returns to Nashville to tape a performance for the Virginia Dreams television show before heading back into the studio to put the finishing touches to a new project and new tour, both launching in 2011.
