Justin Moore Premieres ‘Heroes’ Song During Ceremony For Samuel Deeds 400 NASCAR race
NASCAR and it's fans are known for it's love of country, for being very patriotic and being proud of it. I was thrilled to see the latest thing that was done to honor our military.
NASCAR, along with Crown Royal had a contest called "Your Hero's Name Here" program. A deserving individual had the naming rights to the July 28th race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The winner was Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds from Erlanger, Ky. While deployed in Irag, he came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a vehicle checkpoint. Deeds risked his own life to save fellow approaching Marines. He was severely injured and has underwent more than 30 surgeries.
3 years later, while still recovering, his heroic instincts took over again, when he saved the lives of 3 people caught in a rip tide off the coast of North Carolina.
Justin Moore was on hand when they introduced the winner. He also premiered his new song called "Heroes" during the ceremony. Justin wrote the song specifically for this program.
Now through the race (Samuel Deeds 400) on July 28th. You can go here to download "Heroes" for free. For every download redeemed, Crown Royal will donate one dollar to the Armed Forces Foundation.
