JSU & TSU Halftime Program
To Feature Patriotic Salute to America

JACKSONVILLE -- November 13, 2001 -- During halftime of the JSU vs. Troy State football game, the "Marching Southerners" and Troy State's "Sound of the South" will unite in a patriotic salute to America. The halftime program will feature "My Home's in Alabama," "America the Beautiful," "God Bless America," and "Going Home," and will conclude with the premiere of "We Are America," composed by multi-platinum songwriter Brandon Barnes. This song, inspired by the tragedy of September 11, will be performed by vocalist Will Thompson and the nearly 600 members of the combined JSU and TSU marching bands. The traditional "Battle of the Bands" will take place after the football game, with both bands performing their complete 2001 field shows.
