Not only do these two Marines SERVE our Country, now they are PLAYING THE COUNTRY!
Meet Captain Matt Smith and Captain John Ed Auer, both stationed at 8th and I Marine Corps Barracks, who formed a country band - the Smith Auer Band - after finding the music helped them pass the time while deployed. Both have deployed twice during ‘Operation Enduring Freedom.'
They have already played with Lady Antebellum and Alan Jackson. Now they are performing with WMZQ September 20th along with Little Big Town.
