not Toby that performed it.
I even went so far as to email Toby, yes , Micky ,I was drinking again, and told him just what I thought of his shameless exploitation of the families of soldiers.
My wife tells me he, Tim McGraw, performed the song at a country music awards show, and had pictures of families of some of the fallen heroes in the background.
I wonder if any of the proceeds from this song are going to help the families?
I'm working out a thought about a non profit that might be able to help some of the families.
I've bounced the concept off of a business man who I met through a common interest, and I'm waiting to hear his thoughts.
So stay tuned.I/we may need some help...Back to the matter at hand.
Toby, MR. Keith, I am profoundly sorry for my error, and for questioning your character.(I'm not as good as I once was).
I will be buying a couple of your CDs soon, not only as a token of my sincere apology(but because I enjoy your music.
I will be sending Tim McGraw a message inquiring about the proceeds from his song, and explaining how it effects this father of a soldier.
I intend to call, write, and or visit my local radio stations and explain my feelings to them also.
I turn the radio off every time the song comes on.
I know the first chord of the music, that's how much it affected me.
The first time I heard it on the radio I was driving on the Maine Turnpike. I had to pull over and stop I was so overcome with grief.
Am I over reacting?
If I find that even a portion of the proceeds are going to the families, I will do an immediate about face, and salute Mr. McGraw.
I don't think I'll ever be able to listen to the song though...
Please join me in supporting a true patriot,
