A SONGWRITER SHARES HIS PRIDE IN AMERICA
by Susan Perkins / Editor (abridged)
Folks fly flags from their cars, wear T Shirts or buttons and display banners and signs to show their support of our troops in the Middle East. But Nashville songwriter Eddie Reasoner has come up with his own special way of telling those deployed in the Gulf War that the American people are behind them.
“Stand Your Ground”, a song written by Reasoner and Jan Buckingham is having a resurgence of popularity now that war has broken out in the Persian Gulf. “Being a songwriter is often difficult”, Reasoner said. “You’re always trying to come up with an idea or something others may appreciate or that may effect their lives.”
“Stand Your Ground” is to be featured on NBC and response from radio stations has been excellent! Support groups around the country have adopted it as their theme song.”
