Cody Wayne is hard-driving, high-energy
entertainer whose live shows make him a candidate to be the poster
boy for Texas Country. With songs such as “Makin’ Love In The
Moonlight,” “Footprints On My Windshield,” “Take Me Drunk,”
“Fly High” and “Addicted,” Wayne is a mainstay on the Texas
Regional Radio Report.

Audiences at his shows might not know
that the big fella bounding around the stage is a veteran of the U.S.
Marine Corps but it’s safe to say that Wayne will never forget.
Recently, he released “Remember the Lost Ones,” that he considers
to be his most personal song to date. The lyrics take him back to
his time serving in Iraq and pay homage to those who served,
particularly those who never came back.

Wayne took the opportunity to connect
the song with the nation’s remembrance on Veteran’s Day by
releasing a deeply touching video of “Remembering the Lost Ones”
on November 11, 2019. Check out the poignant video here:

Wayne has pledged 100% of the digital
sales to the Boot Campaign, a non-profit organization based in Texas
that provides life-improving programs for veterans and military
families nationwide. Since its inception in 2009, the BOOT CAMPAIGN
blazed a trail in the nonprofit world, raising more than $20 million
and giving more than $2 million annually to help service members,
veterans and their families from every generation. More information

Speaking of how “Remember the Lost
Ones” affected him, Wayne said it was emotional but also uplifting
at the same time, transporting him back to his time in the service.
“All of a sudden, with my eyes focused on my reflection, it all hit
me,” he recalled. “I saw it all again, I smelled it. I could
hear the drill sergeant yelling, I could hear the Humvee, hear the
radio going off, could smell the air in Iraq. This rush of emotion
just came over me. It is very gratifying knowing that this will help
bring recognition and appreciation to veterans and service members.”

“Remember the Lost Ones” is taken
from Wayne’s current album, Bad Influence. To read more
