Country star Brad Paisley was left speechless during a show in Bangor, Maine on Sunday when the wives of two soldiers he met in Afghanistan on Memorial Day weekend showed up with cardboard cut-outs of their husbands.

The patriotic Celebrity singer jetted off to perform for U.S. troops with President Barack Obama last month, but had no idea he’d be coming face to face with two heroes over the weekend.

The wives of Sgt. Kelly and Sgt. Gross held the heads and torsos of their husbands high above their heads as they stood in the audience at Paisley’s show.

Paisley took to Twitter to send his well wishes to the troops.
