Marine Veteran and lead singer, Scooter Brown, wrote “Valor” with Chris Kyle, United States Navy SEAL Veteran and sniper, while at a Base Camp 40 – Warriors In The Wild Veterans hunting retreat in 2012.
“Chris and I wanted to pay homage to all of our military men and women who have fought in combat for our country ,” said Scooter Brown, adding, “It was the belief of both Chris & myself, that no matter if you got a medal or an award for it or not, we all fought with valor.”
“Earlier this year I was introduced by Kevin Fahlund, a mutual friend and current Navy service member, to Scooter at a Chris Kyle Foundation event at Billy Bob’s Texas. Scooter shared his story with me and then went on stage to sing Valor. I knew right then, this song needed to be heard by our Armed Forces Bowl audience and even more so it needed to be presented in a light that included those that have given more. Therefore, I decided to have him sing at halftime to our wounded warriors that will be on the field during the singing of Valor.” expressed Brant B. Ringler, Executive Director ESPN
