"Transforming Aviation Warfighting - Strengthening Our Sacred Trust"


Soldier Appreciation Dinner Concert
featuring Randy Houser

April 26, 2024 - Ticketed Event - April 1 Deadline - Closed



With an inimitable voice The New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits and more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated “Like A Cowboy.” Houser added a fourth No. 1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his 2016 album, Fired Up. Houser’s sixth studio album Note To Self is available now via Magnolia Music Group and features 10 tracks all co-written by the Mississippi native.

Currently in the top 30 and climbing at Country radio, lead single and title track “Note To Self” marked his “powerful return” following 2019’s critically-acclaimed album Magnolia, with MusicRow boasting the Mississippi-native “remains one of country music’s very finest vocalists.” With multiple sold-out shows in 2022, including an at-capacity stop at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Houser wrapped his co-headlining tour with longtime friend Jamey Johnson and is currently on the road with Cody Johnson. Along with preparing new music and a relentless touring schedule, Houser landed on-screen roles in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film Killers of the Flower Moon starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and more, as well as the inspiring The Hill starring Dennis Quaid.

As you may know by now, the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence commanding general has reestablished the Flight School Class Colored Hat. To help celebrate this initiative and connect back to our history that so many of you have been a part of, we invite you to bring your Flight School Class Colored Hat to the Concert as a visible symbol of the tradition that started so many decades ago and embodies the Sacred Trust that Army Aviation has with the Soldiers on the ground.

Aviators who did not receive an assigned hat during flight school are authorized to wear a Tan hat. The Tan hat represents the aviators' link to the re-establishment of the hat tradition and honoring their service to the global war on terror.

If you are unable to find your original hat or need a tan hat, you’ll be able to purchase one at the Army Aviation Museum Gift Shop on site in Denver right next to registration, or before the event online at  Hat Solo Flight – Aviation Museum Gift Shop (aviation-museum-gift-shop.myshopify.com). You will also be able to buy the rank and unique solo wings!

IAW USAACE policy, only rank and solo wings are approved for attachment to the hat; no other pins, DUIs, etc. are permitted.Active-duty aviators will update their rank as appropriate throughout their career (e.g., CW5, LTC, BG, etc.) Veterans/retirees have the choice to wear their retirement rank, or their rank as achieved while completing IERW training.

Dress Code: Casual
