Singer/Songwriter Alex Woodard shares this charming video for "East Texas Sky," a track from his new release, FOR THE SENDER: Love Letters From Vietnam. The album is a collection of songs created from letters left behind by a Vietnam veteran and the daughter that finds them. This release is a story of service, sacrifice and the power of forgiveness, written and performed by Woodard. The companion FOR THE SENDER: Love Letters From Vietnam book was released to raves and now the album comes out Feb 12. Portions of the proceeds will benefit organizations supported to veterans' causes including Shelter to Soldier, Swiftsure Ranch, and Team RWB.
After receiving an impactful letter from a fan, Woodard transformed how he viewed the music he was making and his songwriting process. Now just a few years into this new chapter, Woodard has written and produced three records as part of his series FOR THE SENDER, which features his music created from letters.
