[email protected] Donates “Story of a Soldier” Proceeds to Veterans

In honor of Memorial Day, country artist Kristian Bush will perform his song “Story of a Soldier” at the 10th Annual National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C. In connection with the performance, fans can download Bush’s song at a “pay what you wish” price with all proceeds benefitting the American Veterans Center. Bush’s philanthropic campaign will run from today, May 26th until Monday, June 2nd.

“Story of a Soldier” was penned by Bush and was inspired by his close connection to the military. Specifically, Bush’s father was an officer in the Army and his grandfather served in World War II. Bush explained:

I know what it is like to look up to a soldier. I know why we applaud on a plane when a soldier comes home, and what those ribbons really mean on the back of those cars. To the members of the U.S. Armed Services, past and present, thank each of you for what you do and for keeping my home and family safe and sound and free. God bless you. I wrote this song for you.

Bush has been involved in the music industry for more than two decades. However, the singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist exploded onto the country music scene in 2004 with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five Number 1 singles and winning numerous awards (Grammys, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs). To date, Bush has received six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and, in 2011, founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect.
