The hour-long special honoring the men and women of the United States Armed Forces will air Saturday, Dec. 18 (9-10 p.m. ET / 8-9 p.m. CT) on NBC.

The star-studded holiday event, taped at Fort Hood, Texas, will feature music from country music icon Trace Adkins along with Diddy-Dirty Money, who will perform “Coming Home” off their new album Last Train to Paris. Emmy-winner Ariel Winter will sing “The National Anthem” and Cedric the Entertainer will bring his award-winning brand of comedy to the special. The telecast will also star The View’s Sherri Shepherd spreading holiday cheer and Miss USA, Rima Fakih, who will announce WWE matches featuring such WWE Superstars as John Cena, Randy Orton, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, Big Show and others.

Thousands of men and women based at Fort Hood have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. WWE Tribute to the Troops will chronicle WWE Superstars and Divas visiting Fort Hood to meet with the troops and their families this holiday season, culminating with a special live in-ring performance in front of thousands of military personnel.

This special marks the eighth consecutive year that WWE will bring its one-of-a-kind entertainment to our service men and women to thank them for their commitment to the country and recognition of their sacrifices. WWE Tribute to the Troops has become a holiday tradition and is considered TV’s most patriotic and heartwarming show of the year.
