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.
