I just heard this song on the radio for the first time and had to find out more about it. It’s the best new song to come along in a while by a pretty wide margin, and on top of that, a good deal of the money it makes is going to a good cause.
“Highway of Heroes”, was co-written and co-produced by The Trews and Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar) and was inspired by the 2006 death of Captain Nichola Goddard from The Trews’ hometown of Antigonish, NS. Canada’s Highway of Heroes, is the section of the MacDonald-Cartier freeway named to honour those who have sacrificed all in service of country.
You can purchase “Highway of Heroes” world-wide exclusively viaiTunes.
Net proceeds from sales will benefitthe Canadian Hero Fund,
), an organization that assists the families of Canadian military personnel through academic scholarships.
The video was directed by Tim Martin.
You can watch and listen here, and be sure to buy yourself a copy if you’re an iTunes person. Hopefully soon they’ll release it elsewhere so that iTunes refusenicks like me can buy it too.
