This is a video that I just had to share with you.

After the loss of my brother last summer, I wrote a song about my brother, my dad, and my uncle. My brother was a veteran of the war in Iraq who was injured there and suffered terrible wounds. I lost both my dad and uncle in the Vietnam War. As my brother was being buried next to my dad and my uncle, the last thing I said to him was "Say Hi To Dad For Me".
I mentioned this song I had written to a retired Nashville music producer, who I met about 3 years ago. He is also a decorated combat veteran from the Vietnam War. The bond we share is one of being the son of a soldier killed in Vietnam and a veteran who fought for our country.
LT Bobby Ross liked the hook "Say Hi To Dad For Me" and we became co-writers on this song. Through his patience, teaching, and incredible talent, we came up with a song about the loss of loved ones and the plight of families who have members that serve in the armed forces. It is also a tribute to my brother and my dad and my uncle.
LT Bobby Ross and I have sent over 2,000 emails back and forth writing this song that has taken 6 months to write. LT Bobby Ross sent it back to Nashville upon completion to be produced by the best and it is now done. We are now trying to get the song cut by a country music recording artist.
