Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelist’s eye and a poet’s heart. When Slaid Cleaves wrote the title track for his new album ‘Still Fighting The War,’ he had a specific subject in mind. Inspired by a Pulitzer-winning series of photos on an Iraq War veteran suffering from PTSD, he sought to address the plight of those returning from war and struggling to readjust to society.
“I hope that telling the story of a struggling vet brings some comfort to those families affected, and I hope some of the 99 percent untouched by the war hear this song and wonder if we are treating our veterans with the care they deserve.”
