The first time we went, I went with the Blue Collar boys, and I was talking to this guy holding his 2-year-old daughter in the only limb he had left,” White told CMT about his motivation for the benefit. “I went outside and just cried like a baby. I’m like, ‘God, there’s gotta be something I can do,’ you know? And what I do isn’t enough. It’s our responsibility, so I take it pretty personally.” The lineup for his 2015 special will feature White, along with comedians Kathleen Madigan, Rocky LaPorte, Shane Torres and Gene Pompa. Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops will take place March 4 at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and will air at a later date on CMT.
