Album Notes
Nashville, TN – Newton & Thomas are proud to announce the new single, “Great American Heroes,” that was recently debuted on Nashville’s WSM Radio 650 AM Coffee, Country and Cody show. This inspirational and patriotic new tune was written by the award-winning songwriter, Mark “Brink” Brinkman. All proceeds from the sale of “Great American Hero” will benefit the American Security Council - a non-profit organization promoting the Strategy of Peace Through Strength.

“On behalf of myself, Steve Thomas, and Mark Brinkman, I can say we are all truly honored that the American Security Council Foundation will use this as their signature song to help raise awareness to their wonderful cause,” said Mark Newton.
Brinkman shared his thoughts on writing “Great American Heroes” saying, “As my son, Zac, was joining the USAF I began thinking about ‘heroes’ and the moral fabric of our nation today. I wanted to write a song to make a statement and honor the ‘real’ heroes in our lives. The dad that works double shifts so that his kids might go to college and have a better life than he did….the mom that keeps the family together, sacrifices personal gain for the benefits of her children…the teacher that can shape the life of a child and inspire them on to a lifetime of learning and contribution to society…and the men and women who put their lives on the line every day for our freedom. These are the ‘real’ heroes that we need to be lifting up! I hope the song helps to redefine the word ‘hero’ and focus on the people with hero qualities - sacrifice, selfless, caring, courage, giving, love, fearless, etc.”

Newton & Thomas will perform “Great American Hero” during the upcoming American Security Council Foundation (ASCF) benefit concert featuring The Band Perry, along with JT Hodges. This highly anticipated event will take place Saturday, December 6, 2014 at the Historic Dodgertown Holman Stadium in Vero Beach, Fla. The festival gates will open at 3:00 PM. We are very excited to have Janine Stange "The National Anthem Girl" on hand to perform and the NAVY SEALS skydiving into the stadium to start the show. We will also have various activities and exhibits outside the stadium in the "Party Zone". According to ASCF Director of Operations Gary James, “The festival will raise funds for The US NAVY UDT/SEAL Trident House and the ASCF Scholarship Fund that provides scholarships to the children of Active Duty Military, Veterans, Law Enforcement and First Responders.”
