Katie interviews Tommy's dad, who has become my favorite person on earth in just these past three minutes! He's so cute. He says that he couldn't be no prouder of Tommy. I wish he would get up there and sing some Waylon Jennings or something. You know he can do it. And then before Tommy sings his second song, there's another surprise. Members of his second family -- the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk -- are there, too! Three Navy guys walk on stage and give Tommy huge hugs. They each say a few nice words, and I think there are some man tears happening. I love how the military just gives people some days off to go hang out on the Nashville Star set. I have no idea how Tommy's version of "Tiny Dancer" goes, as the state of Rhode Island has chosen this exact moment to conduct at test of the Emergency Alert System. Unless Tommy actually sings one big beep. Let's just assume it was relentlessly mediocre. Jewel tells Tommy that he's a unique performer, but she doesn't know if he's uniquely country. She also notes that it's hard for Tommy to sing when he's all choked up and surprised that his buddies are there. She thanks Tommy for serving our country. I want to thank those who serve at Denny's. Without them, Moons Over My Hammy would go untasted by millions of Americans. And that, my friends, would be a true affront to patriotism.
