Joining the legendary California group at the event will be country star Trace Adkins, opera great Renee Fleming, current and final American Idol winner Trent Harmon and singer/actress Katherine McPhee, who is a one-time Idol runner-up.

The concert, which honors military members and their families, airs live on PBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and also will be shown on the American Forces Network. The special will be co-hosted for the 11th year by actors Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise.
