BROKEN BOW RECORDS (BBR) artist KRISTY LEE COOK will be streaming her upcoming single “Airborne Ranger Infantry” on AOL’s THE BOOT’s “First Listen” series. COOK co-wrote this song along with her father, which is based on poems her father wrote about his time as a soldier in the VIETNAM War.
“My dad didn’t really talk about his time in the war much when I was growing up, but he’d written four poems about the things that were happening to him while he was serving. It was a way for him to express himself during that difficult time,” said COOK. “When I was growing up my Mom and I framed the poems for my dad and hung them in the house as a way to honor him. I read them over and over as I was growing up and I always wanted to turn them into a song. It just took a few years to find the right partners to write the song with.”
