Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band Honor Veterans at Concert for Valor

Carrie Underwood
The National Mall was jammed with hundreds of thousands of people last night — as entertainers honored the nation’s veterans.  Carrie Underwood, Zac Brown Band, Metallica, Rihanna, the Black Keys and Jessie J were among the performers.  Bruce Springsteen joined Dave Grohl and the Zac Brown Band to cover “Fortunate Son.” Eminem closed the show, dropping a few f-bombs in the process.

The free Concert for Valor in Washington was carried live by HBO. There’s no official crowd estimate. But organizers said fans and vets would number well into the six figures. Jennifer Hudson kicked off the event with a powerful version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
