The Muscular Dystrophy Telethon on Labor Day weekend (now called the "M.D.A. Show of Strength"), has always been in my opinion, a 'must see event'. This year there's even more of a reason to watch the show. Country music Superstars Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan are scheduled to appear on the Show of Strength. Check out who else is on the line up this year.

Along with Carrie, Tim and Luke, this year Paula Abdul, Alanis Morissette, Carole King and at least a dozen other music notables are set to perform. Since the show started in 1954, it's always been mostly in New York and Las Vegas, this year it will broadcast from Hollywood,  Nashville as well as New York. More country crooners are expected jump on the wagon in the years to come, as the shows format evolves. The MDA Telethon has always been my little reminder that Summer is over and Fall is upon us. Check out the list of stars and times the show will air.
