You Didn't Have To
Song for Nurses Everywhere
This one’s just for you.
We know you are growing tired of the hero talk, the discounts, and the applause. We know you want to shout every time you see someone out in public who isn’t wearing a mask. We know it feels like people aren’t listening or providing you with what you want the most. Respect. Respect for your expertise, the care you provide, and your own well being.
So, this is one of a thousand ways we are trying to make your voice heard.
Through a collaboration with country music stars Brown & Gray and the #ThankANurse #WearAMask movement from NursesEverywhere, I am proud to support the music video for the single, You Didn’t Have To. It is our hope that through this song and its powerful music video our voice will be heard. This one goes out to you. Thank you for your courage, commitment, and the expertise you share with all of us.
