One Of The Good Guys

We always hear about the douche bags out there. In fact, it is probably one of the most popular weekly blog posts that Shit Talkin’ Nick’s most popular posts. It’s a sad state of the world today when a person can come up with a douchebag every single week. But, to be fair, he decided to bring focus on people who did something wonderful, too… He named those posts The Anti-Douche.

Why am I bringing this up? Because…one of my favorite musicians wowed me recently with his kindness, generosity and talent and I thought he deserved some recognition. As you all know, we were all shocked and hurt by the events at Sandy Hook Elementary…and all the other violent acts that have been happening across this country. I remember being on here and on Facebook the day that it happened… Andy Griggs’ reaction was immediate. He posted on Facebook asking if anyone knew anyone in that town of Connecticut…or a way to contact someone out there to see what kind of help could be offered. He’s got a big heart that way.

What did he do next? What else does a talented singer/songwriter do? He used his special talents to try to find a way to cope and heal…but also found a way to try to help. This press release just came out, talking about what he’s doing to help the school and the families…

The general gist is that he’s written a song with his friend and songwriter, Bobby Pinson, called “20 Little Angels” that is available free to listen to on his website… The song will be available to download on iTunes and 100% of the proceeds will be going to the Sandy Hook School Support fund. I thought that was pretty awesome, and so was the song….and I’m not the only one.  Here is what The Boot has to say about his song…

It’s nice to see that there are still good guys out there! Click the link to the song…check it out! In the meantime, here’s a taste of his music…through one of my favorite romantic ballads.

    Hi Kitt,

    Welcome back. I’m glad that it was a false WP suspension and not a deletion of your site as the error page indicated.

    I don’t know Andy Griggs, but it’s always good to hear about people trying to make a difference.

      Thanks, Ray! Apparently I hit their spam alert box, but after reviewing my blog they realized it was a mistake.

      As for Andy Griggs…yeah, I thought it was a stand up thing to do…and the song is very touching…and not in that sad, completely depressing kind of way. 🙂

    I’m not familiar with Andy Griggs but what a wonderful thing to do. It’s so refreshing to hear something upbeat, positive and unselish for a change.

    Welcome back!
