(WFRV)- Operation Song empowers veterans, active-duty military members, and their families to tell their stories through the process of songwriting.
In this segment, Executive Director and Army Veteran Mike Byer, along with songwriter Rob Crosby, discuss how Operation Song has affected Veterans.
Hit country songwriter, Rob Crosby has written songs for Lee Brice, Lady A, Brooks and Dunn, Martina McBride, and The Oak Ridge Boys, to name a few. He also shares his time and talents with veterans, through Operation Song. He’ll perform tomorrow night, along with other celebrated songwriters, at A Night With Operation Song at Epic Event Center.
Operation Song’s Executive Director Mike Byer is a retired Army First Sergeant. As a veteran, Mike wrote with Operation Song about retiring from the military as his son was entering basic training. He now leads the non-profit’s work to pair veterans with songwriters to turn their stories into song.
The event features the first performances of songs written about veterans from our area. Fans will also be treated to a performance from Grammy winner Scott Stapp, voice of Creed.
The Epic Events Center in Green Bay will host the Operation Song Benefit Concert tomorrow (10/6) at 6:30 p.m.
