Gavin DeGraw has released the music video for this song "Soldier," the third single off of his fourth studio album "Sweeter."
Written by DeGraw and produced by Butch Walker, "Soldier" is a song that jumped out at director Carl Diebold the first time he heard it. "I always look for songs and projects that allow me to tell a story and to inspire people to move and do something," Diebold says. "When I first heard "Soldier," I could see the potential for weaving several stories into an epic video. Fortunately the song was released as a single, and Gavin shared my vision."
DeGraw echoes those sentiments. "It was time for me in my career to release a song that had a sentiment like this one
It's something that people from different backgrounds, with a lot of different stories can relate to. It's about love and sacrifice - stepping up to the plate when no one else does. I think people really understand that - and those stories and emotions are what make this song and video so powerful." Watch the video here.
