Everyone has to deal with loss. I am have had to deal with it a lot lately and I do not like it. I lost my amazing nephew Dax about 2 years ago to a gun accident. I then lost his father, my brother in law, in July. Losing someone is hard. You never get over it. You learn to cope with it and make it day to day. Pete Scobell's new album Walkin A Wire, honestly, helps. For me, there are so many songs I can't listen to anymore. They make me sad, I start to cry and some are the most silliest songs that you wouldn't think would do that, but they do.
One of the song's on Pete Scobell's album is called "Wild" and is about the loss of a friend. Now I will admit I cried but it helps sometimes. I don't want to ever lose any memories of Dax or Dan. I never want to forget them. There is not a day that goes by I do not think of them. I would give anything to have them back. The song is amazing. I am excited to buy the album. I will tell you, I did get a sneak peak to the album and I love it!! It reminds you to count your blessings and keep what is truly important, close to your heart.
Now not only is the album really really good, but it is music that deals with loss, life after the military, and supporting our veterans in their endeavors once they return to civilian life. Scobel is a veteran who had many tours of duty overseas, he suffered a traumatic brain injury and is still looking at the positive side of life. During his treatment at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, he was encouraged to play music to help heal. He had played most of his life as a hobby. That is when Walkin A Wire was created from his own life experiences.
Now here is a fun part! I have a signed copy of the Walkin A Wire CD. I also am giving away a Orca Cooler which is valued at $269.99. Now you can't tell me you don't want one of those? To enter for the signed copy from Pete Scobell, click here. To enter for the Orca Cooler, click here!
