“I’m excited to be celebrating the release of my new single “Let’s Talk About Heroes” in Claxton and Reidsville, GA as we approach Veterans Day,” said Ryan Weaver.  “We wanted to write a song that recognized and honors our everyday heroes, military, first responders and all those working on the frontline who put their lives in harm’s way every day to protect us.  The song honors those everyday heroes living among us, day in and day out, and the families of the fallen that we’ve lost in the line of duty.  They deserve our recognition and respect. I hope the Claxton and surrounding communities will join us for Hero Fest this year to celebrate America.”
