Thursday, November 29, 2007
– Purchase Tammy Cochran's new CD, and a soldier will benefit as well.
The singer said that those fans buying "Where I Am," will result in a second copy being sent via care packages unable to make it home for the holidays.
Earlier in her career, Cochran did several performances in a Spirit of America tour, leading her to write "On My Side of the World." This is 1 of 12 songs on "Where I Am."
In an open letter posted on her official website and also on her MySpace page, Cochran wrote, "A lot of our service men and women don't get care packages from 'home', and we would like to change that!!!! We would like to send them a little encouragement and support in these care packages!!!"
Cochran recently created a new page separate from her official artist MySpace, which is dedicated to soldiers and their families and friends awaiting their return home. Cochran wanted to have a place where fans to could gather and share their personal stories with her and also with fellow fans and friends. This new page is also named after her song, "On My Side of the World" and can be accessed at http://www.myspace.com/onsideoftheworld.
Fans can buy the "A Song For a Soldier: Where I Am + One" combo pack at Cochran's official website at http://www.tammycochranfans.com!
