David Ball & The Pioneer Playboys Honor US Troops
New Single to Support Operation Troop Aid
Nashville, TN – Grammy Award winner, David Ball, (“Look What Followed Me Home,” “Riding With Private Malone”) is currently appearing as a celebrity spokesman in a national television campaign in support of Operation Troop Aid, an organization that sends care packages to deployed US Troops. It’s more than just words, however, for this singer/songwriter.
Ball and his band, The Pioneer Playboys, are teaming up with Operation Troop Aid on the single, “What’ll I Do If I Don’t Have You,” which is being released to radio this month.
“I think it’s the best song I’ve ever written,” Ball says, “and I’m pleased to use this love song to raise awareness and support for an organization that does so much good for our troops.”
With its lilting melody and a Celtic flavor, the love song is pure David Ball. A music video is in the works and will debut in the coming weeks.
David Ball was a founding member of what is credited as being the “first Americana act,” the trio known as Uncle Walt’s Band with Walter Hyatt and Champ Hood. Ball and his Pioneer Playboys (Troy Cook, Jr., Scott Metko and Billy Pierce) are currently touring in support of the song and Operation Troop Aid. What’ll I Do If I Don’t Have You” appears on the CD Sparkle City (Red Dirt Music Company 2010).
Operation Troop Aid is a registered 501c3 founded by US Navy veteran, Mark Woods. The charity partners with entertainment initiatives to support its mission of sending care packages to our troops serving far from home. For more information, go to www.operationtroopaid.org or www.troopaid.org
