Singer, Ginger Nelms
“The Hero Left Behind song was inspired by meeting a young lady in Walmart with a nine month old daughter. She told me about not being able to sleep because her husband was going back to Iraq for his third tour. I watched my sister-in-law grieve while my brother went to Iraq in the heat of the battle.

I saw how difficult it was for wives to carry on without their husbands. I don’t want these brave women to be forgotten and I wrote a song to comfort them and to let them know they are appreciated for their sacrifices.”
