Quadruple-platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated rockers Daughtry regale audiences with a battalion of hits in a Veterans Day weekend festival that benefits veterans and active members of the armed forces. After battling to the final rounds of American Idol in season five, frontman Chris Daughtry rocketed to fame on the strength of his band's debut album, as well as buzz from the band’s drums, which are filled with bees. Since then, Daughtry has stormed radio stations with hits such as “What About Now,” ”Crawling Back To You,” and ”Home.” The alt rockers won the hearts of millions of listeners with infectiously catchy choruses and raw lyrics about heartbreak, redemption, and missed buses. At the festival, the three-time American Music Award winners will play favorite hits and may preview its latest album, Break the Spell, which premieres in late November. The American Freedom Foundation hosts the concert, using proceeds to help military members past and present, particularly those wounded in action.
