THIS IS HOW FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE ROLLS
Florida Georgia Line have been doing something really great for wounded, injured or ill veterans in need during their current tour, and they brought the house down over the weekend at their Philadelphia show in Camden, New Jersey, when they presented a vet with a special all-terrain wheelchair.
Marine Corps veteran Chris Kaag was invited out onstage while the crowd cheered with chants of “USA USA” and he showed off his new tracked wheelchair that was given to him by FGL and non-profit group The Independence Fund.
The clip above shows Chris Kaag being greeted by FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. He then brings his young son out on stage to enjoy the moment.
Florida Georgia Line has plans to present a new wheelchair to a veteran at all of their shows all the way through September 21st.
While the Fourth of July is a day of fun and fireworks for us, for pets, all those booms can be seriously traumatizing.
If you’ve got a pet that gets freaked out by fireworks, experts say there are things you can do to keep them safe. Here’s what you need to know:
Leave your pet at home: Fireworks displays can be disorienting and frightening to pets, even those used to going places with their people.
Do not leave your pet in the car. Cars in the summer are dangerously hot. Your pet can suffer serious health effects, even death, in a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air, but do provide an opportunity for your pet to be stolen.
Create a home sanctuary: Leave your pet in an area of your home where he or she is safe, comfortable and sheltered from any outside noise and lights. An inside room with no windows may be best.
Pet-proof your home: When scared, some animals can become destructive, so be sure to remove anything that can become damaged or might harm your pet if chewed.
Keep them inside: Never leave pets outside and unattended. Even in a fenced in yard, panic can lead a pet to escape and get lost, or become injured while trying to seek refuge.
Identification: Make sure that your pet is always wearing identification. Better yet, make sure they are micro-chipped. In the unfortunate event that your pet gets lost, IDs greatly increase your chances of being reunited.

I am a true Philly native through and through. I am brand new to Frederick and lovin’ it. Catch me singing and dancing alone to country music stuck in traffic with my windows down. I run on coffee, red wine and a little whiskey. You might find me buried in stacks of vinyl records, exploring an antique store, kayaking, playing Nintendo 64 or Netflix and chillin’. Fell in love with radio as soon as I cracked the mic! Family, friends, radio and listeners mean the world to me.
