Runaway June Is Bringing Christmas To Our Troops In a Virtual Concert

Runaway June is helping to bring some holiday cheer to military members and their families with their virtual When I Think About Christmas concert, presented by Armed Forces Entertainment.

Due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions, this is the first time in several decades that troops will not be entertained in person. So, Armed Forces Entertainment partnered with Runaway June to create an experience unlike any other for the deployed men and women of the service branches. The holiday concert was filmed in Nashville before an audience of socially distanced family members of the Tennessee National Guard and 5th Special Forces Group.

Runaway June members Naomi Cooke, Natalie Stovall, and Jennifer Wayne were all honored to take part in this special event, and expressed their appreciation for the troops, “Thank you so much for what you do, what you’ve done, the sacrifices that you’ve made, the sacrifices that your families have made over the years…Being able to exercise our rights to our freedom…we wouldn’t have that without our men and women that serve this country, so thank you.”

The live audience and people who view the virtual concert are treated to the trio delivering heart-warming renditions of new and classic Christmas songs including  “Let It Snow,” “O Holy Night,” and “Sleigh Ride,” as well as songs from their new EP, featuring the title track, “When I Think About Christmas,” and another original “Christmas on the Radio.” Mixed in with the holiday tunes, Runaway June performed songs from their own catalog, including their hit “I Can Buy My Own Drinks,” “Wild West,” “Lipstick” and their current single, “We Were Rich.”

When I Think About Christmas is an original virtual concert available now through Saturday, January 2, 2021 exclusively on the Armed Forces Entertainment YouTube Channel, and you can see it here…

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way? I think, that is what we saw from Ammon Bundy during the Special Session in Idaho. I fear those actions have tainted the man’s reputation as a freedom fighter to what…
