Terri Clark, Michelle Wright, Dean Brody, Ridley Bent and Emerson Drive join another two dozen Canadian country artists on the charity single/video “Standing Strong and True (For Tomorrow),” dedicated to Canada’s fallen soldiers and their families. Proceeds go to the Military Families Fund and Boomer's Legacy, which helps the people of Afghanistan.
The song, which opens with the bagpipes of the Naden Band of Maritime Forces Pacific (under Lieutenenant Rob Byrne), was produced and engineered by Kevin Churko (Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Ozzy Osbourne, The Corrs) and Tom McKillip (Aaron Pritchett, One More Girl, Lisa Brokop).
The majority of the singers are signed to Open Road Recordings and EMI Music Canada so the two labels have joined forces to promote the song to radio. EMI made the single and video available for purchase digitally at iTunes ($1.29). The video was produced by Fahrenheit Films and has been serviced to CMT Canada.
