Eric Horner is a famous Christian country singer who is generally greatly admired by the American military. He was invited to play a gig in front of a graduating army recruits class in which President Bush would be delivering a speech. He, his wife, and of could of others were the only people (non-officers) that were allowed to meet the President.
An article was written by Josh Harkinson of Motherjones.com in which they brought up the subject of Eric Horner and how some believe that he is infusing religious coercion into his music by referring to God in his songs, which he claims he never has but records prove otherwise. I'm sure there are a zillion other performers out there who would gladly perform for our military, so there's obviously some sort of connection between people in which Horner's performances are considered superior to others due to the strong religious element- while still claiming that it is not their aim.
