Many people use the memorial Day weekend to catch up with friends, enjoy a day at the beach, or simply relax. Trace Adkins and Sirius XM's The Highway take the time to remind listeners that there’s a real reason to have this Memorial Day Monday off. Memorial day is about Veterans. Even being a Veteran myself, I sometimes forget about the commitments and sacrifices that have been made by those that serve this nation. However, I always take the time on Memorial Day to reflect on not only my own service, but to all of those serve.

The Highway (Sirius Channel 60, XM channel 16) is going to let the entire weekend be a tribute to all the men and women who have ever served our country. Listeners can call 877-499-DRIVE now and leave a message explaining who you’d like to honor and why. Then listen up as Trace Adkins personally plays back as many messages as he can. That and all the newest new country will be sure to have you celebrating ALL the reasons to enjoy the long holiday weekend.

The Highway plays the nations hottest Country tunes including artists such as Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts. Many of these artists have a brand of music that crosses over into pop, and even rock.

Take the time this weekend to thank a Veteran.
