Jennifer Nettles and Danielle Bradbery will help the nation honor those who've died for our country.  The singers are slated to take part in this weekend's "National Memorial Day Concert." 

The event includes musical performances and dramatic readings to highlight the service and sacrifice military members and others have made to support and defend America. 

Actors Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna will co-host the event, which will also feature actresses Megan Hilty and Dianne Wiest and singers Jackie Evancho and Anthony Kearns.  The National Symphony Orchestra, the U.S. Army Chorus, and other military bands will also perform. 

The "National Memorial Day Concert" will air on PBS, live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC, Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
