Slaid Cleaves


Just wanted to thank you bro. Your music was a beautiful escape throughout my deployments to Iraq 2004-2006. Whatever horrible, unbelievable crap was going on, when I finally got back to my rack and turned your music on, I wasn't in a world of sh*t, but back in Alabama with my dog and my girl. Thank You.

10 years on, your music still takes me away. Your words on "Still fighting the war" ring so true. It will never get easier, but knowing the load is shared is a blessing. Keep writing my man, you have a gift.

Best to you,

JB - It means the world to me that you took the time to write. It's so gratifying to hear that my music has done some good in the world. Thank you.
