"The Ballad of the Night Stalker (NSDQ)", AKA as "Donovan's Song", changed up some as a salute to all 160th SOAR (A) Night Stalkers. We are still looking for a major recording artist to bring this song to life.  Until then we'll keep plugging. Hey Sharri, Rolling, Rolling, Rolling, LOL

Our friend, Kelly Coberly had cut some of our songs a while back. Kelly had success when she recorded our song, "Remember West Virginia Coal" and included it on her album. On January 1, 2020, Kelly released this new tribute video about the Sago Mine Tragedy, remembering the fallen, with her heartfelt rendition of "Remember West Virginia Coal".

Our songs were picked up and cut for the albums above. Our song, "Blue Collar Fighting Man" on the album,"The Voices of Born Again American", under exclusive license to Concord Music Group. 

And our song, "And They All Came Home But Me (Once A Marine)", on the album "Country Volume I" released by the military only record label, "To The Fallen Records". My friend Chad Van Rys is the artist on both of these songs. I met Chad in Ar Ramadi, Iraq when he was serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Chad recently started a new YouTube Channel called RegularGuy Radio, and he has some really great new original songs. Check out Chad Van Rys when you have some time.
