Brad Paisley, John Fogerty Raise Awareness for Veterans in New Video

Brad Paisley joined up with John Fogerty for the title track of his new album, Love and War, which Paisley has described as  “One of the more important things I’ve ever said,” adding, “I’m so honored to say it with John Fogerty.”

The song and video bring up the treatment of veterans after they serve their country.

The song includes lyrics such as, “They call ’em decorated heroes / And pin some medals on their chest / Give ’em a tiny little pension / Could we do much less?”.

Paisley and Fogerty split the vocal duties in the choruses, singing, “They say all is fair in love and war / But that ain’t true, it’s wrong / They ship you out to die for us / Forget about you when you don’t.”

“Who could possibly disagree with this? I don’t feel like I’m out on some limb,” he told to Rolling Stone Country. “Everybody from John McCain to Jon Stewart, we all feel this. Somebody has dropped the ball. You don’t always know you’re right. I know we’re right on this.”
