Home Free a Tribute to American Veterans
HOME FREE, A Tribute to American Veterans HOME FREE became a pet project for Rick Lance (a US Navy vet) as, not only an artist on the CD ( w/ 'Sarge'), but also as co-producer with Bob Corbin, photographer of the package design and placed the project on his own record label, Duke Records. Rick has had his own photo studio in Nashville for years and worked with designer Richard Cook to achieve such a unique cover and package design. Rick and Richard said, 'We chose a World War Two theme since Hollywood has for so many years done such an incredible job of illustrating that war. And we are aware of the public's nostalgic facination with that period of American history. But of course, our intention is to help honor ALL American veterans.' Rick also said, 'When John Ely, President of Veterans' Outreach, Inc., the project's sponsor, brought me onto the project as artist and co-producer, I told him I wanted our music to showcase America in all it's glory and not to just put out another collection of patriotic songs. We found only the best material... most songs have never been heard by the general public before ... written by some of the best songwriters here in Nashville.' HOME FREE is a diverse 12-track Country music compilation CD honoring our American veterans. It acknowledges the sacrifice and the courage of the men and women who served in the Armed Forces and illustrates America's values, way of life, traditions and diversities.The title track, HOME FREE, is performed by Country great, T. Graham Brown. Sung in his stunning gravely blues style. Other selections include performances by Ricochet, Moe Bandy, Lane Brody, Corbin Hanner, Don Ellis, James Dean Hicks, Chris Ward, Sheri Jo Porter, Chandler and New Glory. All of these great artists have had critical acclaim within Country music or Country Pop. Most have or soon will have record deals in place. This is NOT a run-of the-mill collection of patriotic songs as the listener will notice right from the start. It will make you proud and it will make you cry! HOME FREE was concieved by John Ely, President Veterans' Outreach, Inc. A registered non profit organization providing assistance to American veterans. Proceeds from the CD will be used to fund Veterans' Outreach, Inc. programs including aid to homeless vets and assistance to our returning servicemen and women....to enable veterans to achieve their personal resolve and share in the American Dream. Our vets need us now more than ever. Sadly, more of our servicemen and women are becoming America's NEW crop of veterans. God bless our troops, our vets and our country!
