In honor National Preparedness Month, GE conducted a survey asking which Emmy nominated actor and actress Americans would like to spend 48 hours with during a power outage. The top rated actress was Tina Fey from 30 Rock. The top rated actor was Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory. We wanted to know what famous person you would like to spend 48 hours with during an outage. The overwhelming response was Toby Keith.
Toby Keith was in Houston Texas on September 8th for a show and during a break of the show, Toby asked who out in the crowd had a soldier that was overseas. While hundreds of people had their hands up, one lucky person was already selected ahead of time for a surprise of a lifetime.
The wife of Major Pete Cruz was in the audience enjoying a great concert when she was pulled on stage to give a shout out to her husband and have Toby Keith sing “American Soldier” for her and her husband. The song was great and afterwards when Toby went to change guitars, a special guest presented him with his American flag guitar. Major Pete Cruz appeared and surprised his wife and they were tearfully reunited and gave each other hugs and kisses while the crowd cheered on.
