RON WHITE BRINGS AN EVENING OF STAR-SPANGLED BANTER TO CMT WHEN "RON WHITE'S VEGAS SALUTE TO THE TROOPS 2013" PREMIERES FRIDAY, MARCH 15

NASHVILLE - February 26, 2013 - Comedian and faithful supporter of the Armed Forces Foundation Ron White joins CMT for an evening full of laughs, when CMT PRESENTS RON WHITE'S VEGAS SALUTE TO THE TROOPS 2013 premieres Friday, March 15 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT. Filmed live at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas earlier this year, White is joined on stage by comedians Josh Blue, John Caparulo, Kathleen Madigan, Ralphie May and Brian Regan for the third anniversary of the show dedicated to those who serve in the military.

The cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking White headlines the 90-minute special, giving his thoughts on being banned from the popular dating site "Christian Mingle," having as many Tour de France wins as Lance Armstrong, and offering advice on child rearing. The special also includes interviews with Sgt. Jonny Joseph "Joey" Jones, and Paige and Jeff McDonald, parents of the late soldier Chris McDonald. Jones is a U.S. Marine who lost both of his legs while serving in Afghanistan and the McDonald's lost their son to PTSD in March of 2012. Both Jones and the McDonald's work closely with the Armed Forces Foundation.

Ron White is an avid supporter of the Armed Forces, and has performed for the Troops at military bases in the U.S. and around the world. A touring comedian since 1986, he gained national fame in 2000 when he joined the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, performing with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy. Since then, he has gone on to tour solo, selling out venues across North America. The tour's success earned him a place among the top three highest grossing comedians during the past five years. White is a two-time Grammy nominated comedy artist, all of his albums have been certified gold or platinum, and he has a New York Times Best Seller to his name. His acting experience includes a co-starring role in "Jayne Mansfield's Car"; the film was directed by Billy Bob Thornton and selected for the Berlin Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. White also had a supporting role in the feature films "Sex and the City 2" and "Horrible Bosses."
