– Trace Adkins dropped a video for his single "Still A Soldier" today.
Director Mike Stryker and producer Shanah helped Adkins create a tribute to veterans and their loved ones for the music video. The powerful video features the life of Army Specialist Bryan Gerwitz.,
"We recorded this song well over a year ago, and my intent was always to release it as a tip of my hat to those who have served," Adkins said. "For those who have crawled off the battlefield but still stand for the anthem, this is for you."
Written by Phil O'Donnell and Wade Kirby, "Still a Soldier" is the current single off Adkins' March release on BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records, "Something's Going On."
Adkins has been involved in efforts for soldiers through his work as spokesperson for the Wounded Warrior Project and 12 overseas USO trips.
