Veterans said they felt like every song was speaking directly to them, and that they felt like they weren’t alone in their thoughts and feelings,” said CreatiVets Co-Founder/Executive Director Richard Casper. “I have never been more excited to share these two stories of two amazing veterans that poured their heart out. I am also extremely thankful to Brantley Gilbert and Big Machine for adding an exclusive live version of Brantley’s No. 1 single “One Hell Of An Amen” to this EP so we can reach more veterans than ever.”
To listen to the to the EP on Amazon Music, listeners can access the album by asking, “Alexa, play music by veterans”, or “Alexa play Veteran’s Day music” in the Amazon Music app for iOS or Android, and on Alexa-enabled devices.

CreatiVets empowers wounded veterans to heal through the arts and music. Through songwriting sessions, they are providing veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress and brain injury the opportunity to use art, music and creative writing to share their experiences and enabling them with tools they can use the rest of their lives. Each song is written to tell the veteran’s personal story and to provide a new strategy to help cope with anxiety and depression. Many veterans continue to write songs on their own, furthering the healing process.
