​Lt. General Edward Cardon​   2LT Kirk W. Boland, Jr.

Kirk W. Boland (Sr.) teams up with his son, Kirk Wesley Boland, Jr., his daughter, Jennifer B. Jones, and wife, Ola S. Boland to write songs that pay tribute to the members of the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as songs that are pro U.S.A., or about the American way of life. Kirk has also written songs with his friends, Chad Van Rys, Gabrielle Elaine Pittman, Dale Hoover, and many others. Check our YouTube Channel for songs that are open to publishing. Also check out Chad Van Rys on his RegularGuy Radio, You Tube Channel.

Publishing is open on our songs. Kirk W. Boland is an ASCAP member. Chad Van Rys is a BMI member. Chad Van Rys is a prolific songwriter, as well a singer and guitarist. Chad has a large collection of songs. While he is known for his military music, his country songs on a wide variety of subjects are potential hits. Chad appeared on NBC in a veterans salute, and was featured in a production by Norman Lear, The Voices of Born Again America. He also had good reviews when he played at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville. While Chad was offered a couple of record deals a few years back, a life on the road wasn't for him. Chad would however like to see some of his songs picked up. If you are interested in Chad's music, email me and I will forward your message to Chad.  Respectfully, Kirk W.

"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
