On Wednesday, Shovels & Rope, Charleston's favorite musical duo, released a brand new single through Rolling Stone. The band is donating proceeds from the song to charity.
Regarding the new tune, the group told Rolling Stone: "This song represents our observations and feelings regarding many of the overwhelming events of the year 2017. "Jet lagged and feeling sensitive to the world politic, we turned on the news and it was a barrage of floods and fires, civil rights protests being confused with anti-patriotism, and escalating nuclear and refugee situations. Everybody gets weary, but we are always faithful in the hearts of people who put love and community first. We hope that we can contribute to a constructive conversation about how we should be acting toward one another and set a good example in our own lives."
When purchased here, all proceeds from "Great, America" will go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, an organization working to build nine treatment facilities across America specifically designed to handle traumatic brain injuries.
