First of all, this is a video in which you can see Brad and Scott playing the song:
"Thank You" was the new theme song for "A Million Thanks". It's a stirring anthem written from the perspective of someone back home, writing a letter of gratitude to a soldier fighting somewhere across the globe. The song shares a common focus with its unique, charitable campaign.
The inspiration for "Thank You" began at an airport when Scott Thomas met a soldier who was departing for Fallujah after a two week visit with his family in the U.S. After a moving conversation, Scott felt led to reach out in some way, but didn't know what to do. With all of the negative news coverage of the war, none of which focused on our soldiers and their sacrifice, he decided to write a song to show his gratitude. With help from his good friend, Brad Avery, they put their thoughts and feelings to music.
Brad and Scott hope to encourage soldiers and their families by letting them know the gratitude felt for their sacrifice for our country and our freedom. "We also hope to incite others to express their thanks verbally and through random acts of kindness to soldiers and their families," shares Brad. "We want people who are sacrificing like that to tknow that they're cared for, they're loved, they're appreciated," said Brad, whose brother has served in the war. "I know that a song can't do much. I know that's in no way going to repay somebody for their sacrifice, but that's our heart behind it. We're just very appreciative."
Expressing their own gratitude was only part of the goal for "Thank You".
