What: America's Veterans - A Musical Salute

Taped November 6, 2014 at Maryland Public Television studios in Owing Mills, MD

Airs November 11, 2014 on PBS (Veteran's Day)

How exciting - Kris took time out from the No Limits Tour today to tape this Maryland Public Television (MPT) special for Veteran's Day. He will appear with Season 6 Idol standout and good friend Melinda Doolittle on a special called America's Veterans - A Musical Salute! Kris and Melinda are joined by the US Airmen of Note and the U.S. Air Force Band and are slated to perform popular and patriotic favorites. From the pictures, it appears this includes a duet!

The special itself will air next Tuesday, Veterans Day, on PBS. Check local listings here. In DC where MPT and I are located, it will air at 8 PM EST. Or you can view a livestream on Maryland Public Television's website

Here are a few of the lovely pictures shared from the taping plus a video for which MPT tweeted a link to us (after the jump) and more:
