Travelin' Soldier

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Aaron Lewis duetting with his teenage daughter, Zoe, who was just 13 years old when the song was recorded. The proud father told Taste of Country Nights that Zoe "nailed" her performance, even though she was a little nervous.

    "With that kind of nerves and that kind of excitement, that's when people crash and burn bad in their try outs for The Voice or American Idol, on the spot in front of people that make you nervous," he explained. "She laid that down three times and she sang it three times and she was done and it was perfect. For it to be her first experience doing that and in a room front of people she was intimidated by. That little girl nailed it three times. I'm a very proud dad."
