5th Annual Patriot Awards: A Star-Studded Celebration of American Heroes

Nashville, Tennessee, is set to host a night of patriotism, music, and gratitude on Thursday, November 16, 2023, as the 5th Annual Patriot Awards, hosted by Fox Nation's charismatic host Pete Hegseth, takes center stage. This highly anticipated event, dedicated to honoring the sacrifices and bravery of American veterans and first responders, is gearing up to be a memorable evening, featuring electrifying performances by country music sensation Craig Morgan and the multi-talented actor and newly named Fox Nation host Dennis Quaid. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit "Answer The Call" a first responder charity. This event will be streamed live on Fox Nation and scheduled to broadcast on FOX News Channel on November, 23 at 8 pm.ET.

For half a decade, the Patriot Awards have become a hallmark celebration that transcends the glitz and glamour of the entertainment world. It's a night where celebrities, veterans, and first responders come together to pay homage to the unsung heroes who have selflessly served their nation. Pete Hegseth, an unwavering advocate for veterans and a familiar face on Fox News is once again taking the reins as the host. His dedication to the cause and passion for highlighting the stories of those who serve our country ensures that this year's event will be both moving and impactful.

The star power doesn't stop at the host. Craig Morgan, a household name in country music, brings his deep-rooted patriotism and heartfelt music to the stage. Known for hits like "That's What I Love About Sunday" and "Bonfire," Morgan's soul-stirring lyrics and commanding stage presence promise to create a profound emotional connection with the audience. With his own military background, Morgan's performance is bound to resonate deeply, touching the hearts of both veterans and civilians in attendance.

Adding an unexpected twist to the evening is Hollywood icon Dennis Quaid, who, has recently joined FOX Nation as a host, will showcase his musical talents. While Quaid is primarily recognized for his acting career, his musical prowess is equally impressive. This addition to the Patriot Awards lineup is sure to bring an extra dose of excitement, proving that the power of music knows no boundaries.

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
