    Kevin Costner Performs Second USO Concert For Troops + Families in Germany - Costner is in a band called Modern West

    Academy Award winner Kevin Costner and his rock/country band Modern West performed their second USO concert for troops and their families stationed in Germany today! It took place today at United States Army Garrison Ansbach, Germany.

    Last year, Costner and his band put on a show for military families at US Army Garrison Grafenwoehr and entertained 800 service men and women and their families. Big ups to Costner for supporting our troops.

    Kevin Costner & Modern West is a six-member rock/country band. In 2008, the group debuted their first album Untold Truths and were featured on the Billboard Top Country album list. Last year, the band released the second album Turn it On and has been extensively touring Germany, Denmark and Sweden. The band's return to Germany also marks the release of the band's third album From Where I Stand, which was released earlier this month.

    "Last year's experience was so amazing that we knew right then that we'd have to do it again," said Costner. "We are in the middle of a big European tour but decided to take a break to perform another USO show for troops and their families serving abroad because this was an opportunity we couldn't pass up."

    Are you going to check out Kevin Costner & Modern West regardless of your location or status as military or civilian?
