Gavin DeGraw Releases Soldier Video
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."
