This April, Sugarland's Kristian Bush made a decision: it
was time to start sharing the music he was writing. "I've written over 50 songs
just this year," Bush says. "It's like I'm on a streak. The songs just keep
coming. And if you add these to everything from the past two decades, they might
never all be heard." He launched his 'Music Mondays' web series that week, and
has since released 12 tracks, both old and new, via KristianBush.com and his
social media feeds. [Hear the "mixtape" of his first eleven songs here.] "I love
writing songs, and I love how the right song at the right time can change
everything," adds Bush. "I'm always looking for new ways to connect these songs
with people who might need to hear them."

While deployed in Iraq, Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds, a diehard NASCAR fan,
dreamed of working in the sport after completing his service. In 2005, those
dreams took a back seat when Deeds placed himself in harm’s way to save the
lives of his fellow Marines. This summer Deeds will travel to one of the
country’s most historic tracks, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), not as a fan
or employee, but as the race namesake.
Thursday in his hometown of
Erlanger, Ky., Deeds was recognized as the winner of Crown Royal’s “Your Hero’s
Name Here” program, which awards one deserving individual naming rights to the
July 28th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at IMS. Surrounded by
friends, family and Marines, Deeds cemented his place in the NASCAR record books
by laying the final brick, engraved with the official race logo, in a ceremonial
“Yard of Bricks” at Flagship Park in Erlanger.
While deployed in Iraq,
Deeds came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a
vehicle checkpoint. Upon seeing fellow Marines approaching, he exposed himself
to the device, risking his own life to save others. He was severely injured and
underwent more than 30 surgeries and procedures following the blast. Three years
later, while still recovering, Deeds’ heroic instincts took charge once again
when he saved the lives of three individuals caught in a rip tide off the coast
of North Carolina.
