Soldier Song (Digital Single)

Soldier Song (Digital Single)

At The American Ski Classic, benefitting The Vail Valley Foundation, Mike Collier (Atlanta, GA) was the highest bidder and he asked me to write a song for our troops. I was excited to do it!

After spending months on the road with Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band I found myself on an off day in DC. I was asked if I wanted to visit our wounded warriors and hero’s at Walter Reed Hospital. By the the time I left the hospital, I was moved by their courage on an entirely new level. I started thinking about how long a soldier is separated from their families, the worry they must endure, the economics of it all, the separation.

I’m gone a couple weeks at a time and its never easy coming back home and settling in to the routine my wife and kids are accustomed to. So to be gone a year, I just couldn’t relate or comprehend the difficulty that must bring. This was the a lot of the inspiration behind “Soldier Song.” I wanted to write it for the soldiers and their families. The song was featured on Fox’s Special Report with Bret Baier. It was a Memorial Day special for our wounded warriors and featured president George Bush with some of our wounded warriors on a bike trip together.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this song will be donated to our troops.
