"I Pledge"

Through the mailing list of Marla, aka FlyLady, she sent this letter:


I wanted to tell you and my family of new friends about something very important that happened to me. My good friend and Lead Guitarist, Jim Sevy came to me about a song the other day. He is one of the nicest people and most patriotic people I have ever met. We love having him in our band and I hope all of you get to meet him someday.

He was a little down and decided to go out for a jog one morning. He had heard that our troops were getting a little depressed and it really made him feel bad. Even when he was telling me about this he got all choked up. He decided we needed to do something for our troops for Christmas.

Jim wrote a very awesome and heart felt song called "I Pledge". He brought me the lyrics and a scratch track to play around with. I spent some time working with the song and went to a local studio where we put it together. We are going to offer it as a free download until January 31 2007.

We want nothing more than to get this song to all of the Troops everywhere. Anyone who will or who has ever served, and anyone who has had family serving. This song is for everyone and anyone who wants to show their support.

Sheplers Western Wear and apparel has also wanted to show their support. They are offering a 20% OFF coupon for online sales to anyone interested in helping get this song out there. www.sheplers.com and the coupon code can be found on the download page for "I Pledge". This coupon also expires January 31,2007.

All of you have been truly amazing to me and have made me feel so welcomed into your family. God Bless our Troops, and God Bless all of you.

Thank you again!

Eric Dodge

Thanks for the lead to this great song for the troops. And thank you for your support of them. I've downloaded it, and will thank Sheplers for their support as well. This is the year that I have promised myself a new ranch jacket, and they do it best.
