This Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, Applebee’s is honoring our service people by allowing all military vets and those on active duty to eat free! The family-friendly restaurant chain has even released a touching commercial to commemorate the day — but what’s the song that’s featured in it?

Country music fans should have no trouble pinning therecognizable voices: It’s Sugarland! The duo’s 2010 release ‘Stand Up’ has a starring role in the new advertisement, which focuses 100% on America’s military men and women.

In the commercial, Sugarland’s track plays as military personnel reunite with their loved ones, while the narrator very simply explains the purpose of the effort. “Our heroes. For their service and sacrifice, we will honor them always,” he says, adding that veterans will eat free on 11/11/11 and to “stand up and share your thanks.”

Applebee’s has even dedicated a section of their website to the sole purpose of thanking those who protect us. To pass your thanks on, visit the Thank You Movement.

‘Stand Up’ appears on Sugarland’s most recent release, ‘The Incredible Machine.’
