Mike Huckabee makes surprise appearance at Legacy Five event

For the last several years, Legacy Five has brought in surprise guests for their Memorial Day Celebration event in Nashville. This year, they brought Mike Huckabee. He made a speech and then played bass guitar as the group sang “I’ll Fly Away.”

Mike Huckabee is the former governor of Arkansas and ran for President in 2008. (He out-lasted all other candidates besides the winner, McCain.) He now hosts “Huckabee,” a number one rated program on the Fox Channel, and hosts the “Huckabee Report,” which is aired nationally three times each day on the ABC Radio Network.

This might be a long shot, but did anyone reading this catch “I’ll Fly Away” on video?

  1. Remember during the elections? You posted an entry with a video of Mike Huckabee playing the song on his bass.

  2. Yes, I do remember that, and that was cool. But it would be so much more cool to see him on stage performing with L5. 🙂

  3. My hope is that Legacy Five did a video of the complete appearance/performance. Knowing how frequently they release new videos, they probably will include it in a future video. I’d still like to see the performance on an amateur video though.

  4. I really would love to see a video of that!!!!!!! Mike Huckabee is one of the very few politicians that give me hope for the future…

  5. Oh, wow! I am a big supporter of Huckabee and a fan of L5. I follow very regularly news about Huckabee, but this is one thing I had never heard about. I haven’t been on your blog in awhile so I just now saw this. It’s very cool!
