Dear Old America
Can you believe that the sisters that formed the rock band Heart started plugging in their amps 40 years ago?! I’ve been listening to Ann and Nancy Wilson about as long as I understood the power that music possesses. Their song “These Dreams” is still one of the best ballads from the days of big hair and tight, leather pants, in my opinion.
What some may not also realize is that Heart has long been a huge supporter of our troops. In the early 1990s, after the Gulf War, Heart played a Red Cross benefit for troops in the Seattle/Ft. Lewis area. More recently they played in the VH1 Divas Support the Troops concerts at many different military installations.
Well, now Heart has a new music video that serves as an homage to our American veterans who have fought for this country’s freedom. The video includes personal pictures sent from Heart fans and are the background to an emotional and touching song dedicated to these brave soldiers.
I’m working on getting an interview with Ann or Nancy, so stay tuned to ASP Radio and subscribe to get updates.
