SANTA CLARITA, Calif., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Country singer Rockie
Lynne has been announced as a featured performer during Princess Cruises'
first-ever fundraising cruise to support U.S. veterans. Lynne, a veteran
himself who frequently supports military causes, will perform with his
five-piece band during the November 5-9 sailing.


Lynne's debut single, "Lipstick," spent an impressive 10 consecutive weeks in
the #1 slot on Billboard's Country Singles Sales chart. He is also co-founder
of an annual charity motorcycle ride called TRIBUTE TO THE TROOPS, which has
raised more than $250,000 in aid to families of the fallen. One third of the
proceeds from his new album, "Songs for Soldiers," will benefit troop-related
charities. The inspiration for the album was his 21-day tour of Afghanistan,
Southwest Asia, and The Persian Gulf, where he and his band entertained U.S.
troops stationed abroad.

During the cruise, Lynne and his band will be headliners in the ship's
Princess Theater, and will also offer an up-close performance in Club Fusion.

The groundbreaking sailing will raise funds for two respected veterans'
organizations - Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Inc. and Operation Homefront
Inc. The voyage sails roundtrip from Houston aboard Caribbean Princess to the
Western Caribbean, and is expected to generate $1 million for the two

Lynne joins a number of special guests who will be aboard the cruise,
including former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen
(Ret.); retired senior officers from the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air
Force; an award-winning war correspondent; and other respected speakers,
authors and panelists. More information and the latest line-up of special
guests can be found at
