8/17 EDIT: I'm adding another link to a newer mix, see below.
Earlier this year I had a great experience collaborating on this song with musician friends at the Cakewalk Forums.
Singer/Songwriter/Musician JEFF ALLEN wrote this song and dedicates it to soldiers on duty over seas. He's currently making the final version of it available free of charge to all service members.
Jeff recorded the basic tracks, singing, playing drums, acoustic rhythm guitar and bass. Guitarists FRANK PRATTE and JAMES LINGREE added electric lead parts throughout.
I wrote, arranged and performed the JABB piano and GPO string parts, and also arranged and sang the background vocals.
IMPORTANT CAVEAT ABOUT THIS MP3 - It isn't the final mix Jeff produced, and has been cobbled together from scratch MP3 tests, so the sound quality isn't what Jeff is currently ready to release. But it will suffice for hearing what this country flavored pop song sounds like.
